You need to sit and take this one in. But once again the mosaics speak for themselves.The font in the centre is full of little coins that look like mosaics themselves. Never really understood the need to do that.

This is another of the UNESCO world heritage sites and as with the others the completeness and quality of the decoration is astonishing. A must see.

Another very old battisterio, another set of awesome impressive Byzantine mosaics from the 5th century. Very impressive with a great visual effect where the mosaics in the cupola seems to move around with you. Absolutely worth the visit

The whole of the ancient city of Ravenna is a world heritage site for all to feast their eyes on. Each one is unique in a different way and exceptional.

I had done little research before visitng Ravenna, so was prepared to be either thrilled or disappointed. This did not disappoint, rather blew us away with the finery and antiquity of it all. Well worth a visit.
