One cannot really have a favourite but the closeness of the Mosaics and the intimacy in this Mausoleum is quite exceptional and one you simply never forget.

Take your time to admire this place full of antic history! It's also a comfortable place when it's very sunny and hot outside. You can pay a pass at San Vitale to get the possibility to visit it and 4-5 other splendid monuments. Its cost...More

Just be amazed by this beautiful mausoleum. Buy a combi-ticket (for the adjacent Basilica also). Rather small building altogether but an entirely different universe when you're in there.

This small masonry holds some amazing Byzantine mosaics inside. The mosaics have great detail, colors and workmanship. Building is 1500 years old. Close to the Basilica di San Vitale.

This petite little mausoleum is perfect. Its scale, its cool interior, and above all, its INCREDIBLE MOSAICS make it the most memorable of all the Ravenna attractions. You feel so CLOSE to the incredible artistry- you feel a PART of the images - as if...More

This was absolutely worth to visit: phenomenal mosaics at the walls and ceilings of the mausoleum, more than 15 centuries old.

This should certainly be a 5 star rating, as the mausoleum has the most beautiful mosaico in Ravenna. But the ticket is a problem. If you have the "Romagna visit card", wich permits you to visit monuments and museum with discounts and so on, you...More

This mausoleum was one of the 5 sites we visited with our combo ticket in Ravenna, which is valid for 7 days, but it´s also possible to make them all on the same day. Recommended to buy the guide book from the shop and then...More

Do yourself a favor and learn the story of Galla Placidia before you go... amazing story. Fun fact, though... she's not buried here. She had plenty of time, however, to build an elaborate mausoleum full of beautiful mosaics. Check it out.

I had wanted to visit for years and am so pleased to have seen it for myself. Beautiful details in the mosaics, incredible how they mosaiced the edges of the arches and mosaiced on round surfaces. The blue/gold contrast is gorgeous. I was very impressed...More
