Mausoleum of Galla Placido is one of the unique buildings of this city. Here have remained the oldest mosaics in Ravvenne. The mosaics are a precious piece of art. Basilica of San Vitale is known as one of the most beautiful churches. Its building took place in the middle of the 6th century. The facade of the basilica is decorated with beautiful carvings with gliding, and the inside decoration includes floor and walls lined with elegant mosaics. The shape of the building is also truly unusual - the basilica features an octagonal shape, while the most common shape for such buildings is a rectangular one. Basilica of Sant 'Apollinare Nuova built in the 7th century is a no less interesting building. Ravenna is often called the city of mosaics, and this name is true. The basilica is decorated with fascinating images made of pieces of colored marble. Over two dozen pictures made from the mosaic show the scenes from the life of Jesus Christ. You will also see the images of saints and angels.
Don’t forget to visit Santo Spirito Church. In addition to rich decoration of the façade this church is notable for picturesque garden surrounding it. Here you can walk in silence and solitude, and enjoy the splendor of the local countryside. The mausoleum of Theodoric is without a doubt the most extraordinary architectural structure of the city. The outdoor design features the decahedral shape, but inside the mausoleum is perfectly round. Besides these places of interest you can make a tour to Basilica of Sant 'Apollinare-in-Class or move your feet to the mausoleum near the tomb of Dante. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
