Visit some of the wonders of the city on a tour that starts from Piazza San Francesco and winds through the streets of the historic center to reach 4 of 8 World Heritage Sites including the Basilica of San Vitale, the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo and the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.

The 6th-century Basilica of San Vitale is one of the most important monuments of early Christian art in Italy. As you enter the basilica, your gaze will be captured by the high spaces, the large frescoed dome, the beautiful mosaic decorations of the apse and the extraordinary representation of the imperial couple of Byzantium: Justinian and Theodora, with their corteges.

The Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, once a palatine church for Arian worship, allows visitors to retrace the evolution of Byzantine wall mosaics from the Theodoric age to the Justinian period. Admire the 26 Christological scenes that make up the largest monumental cycle of the New Testament.

The Mausoleum was built at the behest of Galla Placidia, who ruled the Western Roman Empire. This small mausoleum, externally is very simple, while inside it presents a rich mosaic decoration.
