They depict fascinating stories of sacrifice and compassion. Immaculately preserved and a sheer delight to the eyes, this church is a must visit when in Ravenna.

  • How can a person not be deeply moved by this great and holy place of faith and sacred art that deserves the designation as a World Heritage Site. It is a treasure for all humanity!

  • Amazing mosaics, a must visit in Ravenna. A combined ticket allows you to visit the five UNESCO monuments for euro 9.50 per adult, kids under 12 free.

  • A sight that must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Words are not enough to describe the splendor of these mosaics.

  • The ultimate masterpiece of late Roman art. Breathtaking mosaics, but unfortunately you can't enjoy it in silence because of hordes of loud organized groups. An absolute must for any art lover...

  • This for me this was the highlight of my trip to Ravenna. The Mosaic workmanship inside is exquisite. We stayed in there for about half an hour just marveling at the intricacy and architecture. It's remarkable how this church has been preserved. It is rather dark inside so I recommend coming in the afternoon while it's still light out. When the sun comes through the windows and hits the mosaic walls they just glitter and light up.
