The mausoleum is right next to San Vitale, but the mosaics are also spectacular though on a smaller scale.

We enjoyed touring this beautiful mausaleum in Ravenna while there and it is very near a basilica that is also beautiful.

very beautiful, an intimate gem of a place with spectacular mosaics. It is well worth getting the 5 sites ticket as the sites themselves are not huge - it is all about the mosaics after all. If you wanted to OD on gold and gorgeousness...More

We wanted very much to visit this place, but had limited time. Visitors are only allowed 5 minutes inside (a bit like seeing the Last Supper in Milan) to maintain the eco stability of very previous 5th century mosaics. Understandable - we didn’t mind that....More

Wow, wow, and more wow! Even though Ravenna has gorgeous mosaics at every turn, the Mausoleo di Galla Placidia was my personal favorite. I think the small, unassuming exterior is a perfect set up to completely stun you with the absolute beauty inside. Others have...More

The Mausoleo is incredible and is the perfect “warm up” before visiting the Basillica. It was lovely to be able to see the mosaics up close and imagining the painstaking work that went into such an amazing creation.

Beautiful small chapel next to the Basilica of San Vitale. Delicate, gorgeous mosaic tile animal and human figures. Lovely.

Nice beautiful colors that have been preserved so well. Included in the tickets for all 5 museums. It is small but amazing.

This lies in the shadow of S. Vitale and is very small. Visitor numbers are restricted because of its size and also to protect the mosaics from the atmospheric impact of crowds. In March, there was very little waiting but I imagine that in summer...More
