Ravenna is one of the jewels of Italy, which is saying quite a lot.
Tucked away in the northeast corner of Italy, below the much-more-visited city of Venice on the Adriatic Sea.
Ravenna only receives about two dozen cruise calls per year, and this year eight of them will be by Silversea ships.
What makes this place a treasure?
It’s all about the mosaics.
And the relative paucity of tourists, present company excepted.
Here are photos I took today at the Basilica of San Vitale, and the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare Nuovo.
