The location is a bit remote from the highlights in the town center, but the colorful and lively mosaics are absolutely worth a detour.

This is by far my favourite church in Ravenna with a mix of fantastic bell tower, a great front in marble and inside it is a wonder with amazing mosaics. Absolutely worth the walk

Seem to have been heavily restored and reworked through generations. Nice mosaic around the nave though.

This is a very attractive basilica on Via di Roma. From outside, the façade is impressive with the old tower to one side. Once inside, the you'll notice the upper interior walls are covered with wonderful ancient mosaics, thirteen each side depicting miracles and parables...More

UNESCO's choice is obvious once you know Ravenna: it had to be Patrimony of Humanity! More than 1400 years and so well preserved!

This was my second favourite basilica and an absolute must for visitors to Ravenna. It was one of five places I could visit by paying €11 for a ticket

Worth visiting as it is part of the minimum price ticket (3 venues) that you have to buy to visit S Vitale.

If you are going to Ravenna, you are probably going to see the mosaics. Don't miss this Basilica, it features two walls of impressive mosaics in perfect condition.
