“A secret space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Although very dark inside, this tomb transports you back in time. As an added free extra to San Vitale it is well worth a short visit (it is tiny).

“Starry, starry night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2011

This is the place that is said to have inspired the American songwriter Cole Porter to compose his famous song "Night and Day". See it inside and understand why. One of the most beuatiful things I have seen in my whole life.

“Must see.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

Ravenna is a new tourist gem attraction destination. RCCL has just started stopping there. We ported there on our Med cruise and happy to have done so. The mosaics in EVERY venue are outstanding.

Ravenna is small and can be walked in less than a day. Escew the cruise line excusrion to save some bucks. BUT. Do take the cruise line transfer from the port to the city center. Get a map and do it on your own. We did that and enjoyed Ravenna.

“Awe-inspiring mosaics”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

This tiny mausoleum next door to the church of San Vitale is covered with mosaics from the 5th century. It is completely perfect. A beautiful tribute to Galla Placidia and her family.
