DISCOVER ITALY: RAVENNA

posted by on November 5th, 2013

Northern Italy is often overlooked because there are simply so many choices facing visitors to Italy. However, this region boasts museums, cities and landscapes that range from sunny beaches to snow capped mountains.

The church of San Vitale is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the town of Ravenna.

It is sometimes referred to as the Mosaic Basilica because of its large collection of intricate mosaics.

This is not merely another impressive collection of religious art, it is some of the oldest surviving art in Italy. The mosaics were commissioned nearly 1500 years ago, making them some of the best remaining examples of art from their time period.
