San Vitale

Ravenna is UNESCO World Heritage listed for the 5th and 6th century AD monuments that house amazing mosaics. This unassuming exterior of Basilica San Vitale holds great treasures.
The brightness of the glass mosaics was amazing, plus the imposing marble lined walls and spiritual heritage made us very happy that we had chosen to come to Ravenna.
The floor mosaics. Successive centuries have added paintings and other decorative elements.



  1. The mosaics are SO beautiful - intend to go there in the next couple of years - will talk to you later about your trip - you are having a wonderful time!!!

  2. Just beautiful mosaics Sue. And the ceilings are just gorgeous too
