  • I return here around three times a year. It never gets old (no pun intended). It IS magnificent and very old - amazing mosaics the likes of which will simply astound you. The scale of them can’t be described. I’ve added a very small sampling of which there are much more. It’s the oldest known Christian establishment that is mostly intact. Stunningly preserved - wonderfully displayed in its original state. Truly a must see if you are in the area.
  • Beautiful place located in quite a precious city in Northern Italy. The price is really worth it in order to explore the beautiful mosaics and the beauty of this place. Its quite extensive and interesting.
