Basilica - Santuario di Santo Stefano

Reviewed By Marla7 - Naas, Ireland

The Santo Stefano complex includes 7 interconnected churches, each with its own style and history, with parts dating back to the early Middle Ages. I definitely recommend to take your time to visit the whole complex, the museum and even the gift shop. Great way to escape the heat too, if visiting in the summer!

Basilica San Vitale

History As a symbol of the Archiepiscopal Chancellery of Ravenna, San Vitale is one of the greatest works of late Roman art. Famous for its mosaics commissioned by Archbishop Maximian (546/556 AD), the basilica is a place of contemplation. While the body descends its steps the spirit rises to the Truth. A masterpiece to be admired for its evident beauty and its hidden, precise, evocative theological argument.

Reviewed By DRJAMESV - Makawao, United States

This basilica is named for the saint martyred in 303 AD. However, its gold gilded mosaics are a testament to Emperor Justinian and his wife Queen Theodora. I am likely a descendent of this saint, since my surname is Vitale also. The walking distance Ai Giardini di Vitale hotel is also stellar.

Mausoleo di Galla Placidia

Reviewed By GaramMassala - Tarneit, Australia

This mausoleum is absolutely stunning inside, with beautiful mosaics on its walls and ceilings. There was a long queue (about 45 minutes) and the time inside was limited (5 minutes maximum), but it was worth it as one of the highlights of Ravenna.

Teatro Farnese

Splendida ricostruzione di teatro farnesiano nel palazzo della pilotta

Reviewed By whitefish8

Great to visit this amazing theatre with very few people (there were two others when we visited). The Fornastetti plates sitting in seats was a great idea. This theatre is early 17th C and you can see all the ancient beams as you walk behind. Really kool.

Arco d'Augusto

Reviewed By asiyahnoemik - Pula, Croatia

Beautiful Arch of Augustus ( Arco d'Augusto ), together with the Tiberius Bridge, is one of the oldest Roman symbols of Rimini, as well as a fundamental reference point for the whole city. The monument is in fact located in the historic center, at the end of the Corso d'Augusto, which crosses the entire center until it reaches the Tiberius bridge. It has four shields or round portraits from Roman times, in which the four deities are depicted: Jupiter, recognizable by the lightning symbol; Apollo, depicted with zither and crow; Neptune, recognizable by the trident and the dolphin, and finally the Goddess of Rome, represented with the sword and the weapon trophy. A wonderful example of Roman history that we can enjoy.

Reviewed By Stella_Krewleb - Ferrara, Italy

Very diverse aspects: the ancient building, the interesting history, the scary dungeon, the panoramic view from the tower, the amazing old paintings! There are a lot of rooms to admire. Worth a visit to explore the city and very nice for families. In christmas time (might be only a spwcific weekend) there is a reindeer sleigh in the inner courtyard and a lot of cute christmas decoration.

Basilica di San Petronio

Reviewed By adaniels83 - Leeds, United Kingdom

This is a beautiful elegant and rather large church, entry is free, if you would like to take photos inside then there is a €2 charge with the proceeds going towards restoration of the many elements of the church. I read many times about people not being allowed in wearing shorts... that is a lie there were plenty of people wearing shorts and with legs on show and there was not one bit of animosity towards them!! The workmanship of the church is quite stunning and in my opinion a must see, the torri degli Asinelli was closed for renovations on our trip so as an alternative way of obtaining Ariel views of the city go to the rear of the church where for €3 you can get to the top and a viewing platform where the views are great.

Le Due Torri Torre degli Asinell

The colossal towers were built by Bologna's important families in the 12th century.

Reviewed By minkerryc

It is not often you get to climb a medieval tower nearly 1000 years old. There are 500 steps and those with claustrophobia or fear of heights may struggle. The view at the top is worth it though.
