Mausoleo di Galla Placidia, Ravenna

4.8
Built during the mid-fifth century, Mausoleo di Galla Placidia is one of the best-preserved Christian sites in Italy, as well as a World Heritage site. The mausoleum's simple exterior belies its detailed inner sanctum, which is adorned with intricate, sky-themed mosaics. The mosaic over the north entrance features a stylized, regal depiction of Jesus, a transition from classical portrayals to the medieval-style artwork seen in the following centuries.

  • Ravenna-city mazajki! Silence, fresh air. In perdvigajutsja on foot, on bicycles or electric vehicles. From this dizzy. Charmed tourists with cameras skips transportation, realizing that such emotions do not notice anything.

  • Mausoleum filled with beautiful mosaics, to visit for their beauty ... you can't take pictures with flash inside so as not to ruin the works and some queue because the place is small and you enter a little at a time.

  • Absolutely beautifull mosaics. This is a world heritage site. Not to be missed
  • Outstanding mosaics. They were so beautiful. We bought the tickets to visit many sites in the city and it doesn't end up being expensive if you got the time.
  • Absolutely astonishing mosaic! Probably the most impressive in Ravenna. The entry cost 9,50 € what first sounds expensive. But 4 other UNESCO Sights in Ravenna are also included in the ticket.
  • Historical place, small but wonderful mosaics inside. Buy unique ticket for Galla Placidia, San Vitale, Sant’Apollinare Nuovo, Neonian Baptistery and Arcivescovile Museum
  • Absolutely fascinating to see such a well preserved late Roman/Byzantine site. Stunning mosaics.
