The simple exterior of this mausoleum with the Latin cross was built in the 5th century and has lavish decorations. You won’t need much time in here - probably 15 mins is enough but it is well worth it.

One cannot really have a favourite but the closeness of the Mosaics and the intimacy in this Mausoleum is quite exceptional and one you simply never forget.

Take your time to admire this place full of antic history! It's also a comfortable place when it's very sunny and hot outside. You can pay a pass at San Vitale to get the possibility to visit it and 4-5 other splendid monuments. Its cost...More
