1.3
#7 of 11 in Historic Sites in Ravenna
Designated as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ravenna, Mausoleo di Teodorico was built by Theoderic the Great in 520 CE as his future resting place. After a military defeat, his bones were scattered, and the mausoleum was converted into the church of Sta. Maria della Rotonda. The floor floor is a decagon. The upper floor is a circle crowned by a dome 11 m (36 ft) in diameter made of limestone from Istria. The facade and portico were rebuilt in the 16th century.

    Nice location, nice Park where it is located and the history of the monument and to who did build. The visit of the monument itself is, however, very fast, in its two rooms completely bare, and despite being within walking distance from the Centre, perhaps it is better to reach it by car. After many mosaics, here the Interior is completely bare, the absolute silence, and the power lies in this. Attention: the ticket office closes half an hour before closing time and at that time no longer sold the combined ticket (mausoleum + Arian baptistery + National Museum). Free admission the first Sunday of the month: better take advantage of it!

    Just outside the Centre of Ravenna surrounded by Green stands the imposing mausoleum of Theodoric all built in stone, I think it's a place to visit picturesque, easily accessible by car and free parking.

    In my opinion, the ticket (€ 4) is too high, considering the fact that to visit 5 of the most beautiful monuments of Ravenna, a Unesco World Heritage site, there is a combined ticket of 9.50 euros.
