Practical info
Explore the best of Ravenna with a convenient combo ticket that grants you access to two iconic landmarks: San Vitale and Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, plus a special visit to the enchanting St. Andrew's Chapel within the Archiepiscopal Museum. Delve into the majestic San Vitale, an octagonal marvel from the 6th century that seamlessly blends Roman and Byzantine architectural styles. As you wander through its walls, you'll discover intricate mosaics depicting stories from the Old Testament, crafted from thousands of tiny tiles. Nearby, you'll find mosaics paying homage to Roman royalty, including Emperor Justinian I and Empress Theodora. Just a stone's throw away from the Basilica of San Vitale lies the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, a 5th-century gem waiting to be explored. Next, venture into the UNESCO-listed Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, an architectural masterpiece erected by Ostrogoth king Theodoric the Great in the 6th century. This understated gem is filled with hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered. Inside, you'll find stunning floor-to-ceiling Byzantine-era mosaics, which were once painted over by Pope Gregory the Great to maintain the focus on prayer, and later restored after damage in World War I. Be sure to spot the oldest mosaic cycle depicting the life of Christ. Step into the captivating St. Andrew's Chapel, where you'll uncover evidence of the early Byzantine era's religious divide. Marvel at the mosaics telling the story of influential figures and landmarks in Ravenna. Discover why this site is lovingly referred to as the "hidden pearl" of the Archbishop Museum, once the private chapel of the bishops of Ravenna, featuring epigraphs, the Cathedral treasure, and an exquisite ivory throne of Bishop Maximian. Finish your journey at the Neonian Baptistery, named after Bishop Neon, who continued its construction after his predecessor, Ursus. Be awestruck by the stunning mosaic dome, dating back to the time of Bishop Neone.
