Really impressive mosaic decoration covers the inside of this little gem. As virtually everyone here says, great attraction, don't miss it.

This is part of the tour you can get one ticket for, and its on the grounds of the Basilic di San Vitale. Beautiful little chapel. Don't miss anything on that multiple entry list.

For me Ravenna has started to become synonymous with brilliant mosaic arts. Some of the best places in Ravenna is a great testament to this including this one. What is ironical about the whole place is that the exteriors are pretty Spartan, and kind of not that attractive but once you step inside you will be completely blown by the amount of work and the shimmery mosaics it has all over. Another must visit place in Ravenna

A stunning little gem of a mausoleum! It’s like entering a jewelry box. Glittering gold and blue mosaics cover the inside of this small building. A must see on any visit to Ravenna!!

From outside you would never expect to see what you'll see inside.
With alabaster windows and mosaics covering the majority of the walls this little tomb is really nice. It is allowed to take photos but not with flash.
