Another beautiful church with a particularly impressive front. Although still central, this doesn't feel like a tourist area so you might want to head there if you are fed up with crowds. Around the corner from the church are the public gardens which are worth...More

The Basilica is located on Via Roma and not in the hub of Ravenna so many visitors my overlook this church. It was just South of the hotel that I was staying at and convenient to visit. Because of its location, you won't find the...More

If you run out of time like we did, skip this. The exterior is beautiful, but the inside in very dull. Free entry.

We didn't have much time so we couldn't give it the respect it probably deserves. We had a quick peek in. It's difficult for this immense church to compete for tourists against the Byzentium heritage.

The exterior of the church is very beautiful - set well back from the street across a wide lawn. The interior was attractive but nothing unique held our attention. Interesting to visit, but if you have limited time, this is a site I would skip.

This church located on the historic Via di Roma has great curb appeal with a wide lawn and the adjacent monastery (now an art museum -- MAR). Inside you'll find a working parish with a regular mass schedule, candles, and statues. Although the interior belies...More

Stunning church when looking from the beautiful piazza in front. Inside it was a bit disappointing, it's just like any other church you'll find Italy. Nice place for a selfie outside but nothing much to see on the inside.

This imponent building of the Basilica of Saint Mary in Port is a great attraction. I found this Basilica beautiful, clean and I would say take time to see it.
