The visit to the Early-Christian and Byzantine mosaics of the 5th and 6th centuries includes: • Church of S. Vitale commissioned by the Emperor Justinian of Byzantium. In the mosaics here he is masterfully depicted with his fabulous wife Theodora. • Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, A powerful building created to honour the resilient and colourful empress of the Western Roman Empire. • Neoniano Baptistery close to the ancient Cathedral and decorated by wonderful mosaics • The tomb of Dante, close to the Basilica of San Francisco and its cloisters • Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuovo which was the private chapel of the Ostrogoths King Theoderic. A guided walk through the old city centre with a pause and a practical demonstration of mosaic -making technique, enjoyng and understanding the enormous history and the quiet rhythm of life in Ravenna.
