The whole of the ancient city of Ravenna is a world heritage site for all to feast their eyes on. Each one is unique in a different way and exceptional.

I had done little research before visitng Ravenna, so was prepared to be either thrilled or disappointed. This did not disappoint, rather blew us away with the finery and antiquity of it all. Well worth a visit.

This is one of two baptisteries in Ravenna, both decorated with mosaics, from rival Christian sects and with different seemingly minor details that were theologically important at the time. Neither is to be missed!

I merely poked my head in the door and saw part of the ceiling. However, the charm wore off quickly when I noted the 9.5-8.5 euro entrance fee. There is the Battistero degli Ariano about 6 minutes away for free or <1 euro. Unless this...More
