“2014 Vacation”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

It is a beautifully decorated tomb. The tomb is rich in early christian symbols. Like the Chi Rho which signifies Christ. No dislikes

“Another one in the must see list in Ravenna”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

No words just silence and your mind is in peace. Not a lot of people was there when we came and the location is fabolous. Just great. As said before there are not a lot of locations and work of men like this round the world.
When buying tickets buy for 5 attractions at once and do take time to visit them all.

Only the kiosk for the ticket purchase could be located somewhere else but I understand that the weather conditions are not nice in all times of year.

“Another wow”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

After the neighbouring Basilica of San Vitale you think you've seen it all. Then here are what I assume are even older magical stunning mosaics. As it is quite small, it has a unity about it which is not possible at the large basilicas in Ravenna so it is well worth running the risk of mosaic burn-out by visiting this too. They are all included in the same ticket.

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

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

“The Little Jewel”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

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.
