Ravenna isn’t one of Italy’s most obvious tourist destinations. In fact, when I told my parents and a few friends from home where we were going last weekend, they’ve never even heard of it. For those who do know Ravenna, they know about its breathtaking mosaics (many from as early as the 6th century!)
It’s hard to believe that something can be that old, let alone still be as absolutely stunning as these mosaics. The tiles are so tiny that the pictures I took make them look more like frescos but I assure you, they are mosaics and they are probably some of the most amazing works of art I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
