Expected little bit more
Sep 2019 • Couples
This was second place we stop by in Ravenna. Honestly I expected more from this. Even so, you can see and admire something that still stands for almost 1500 years. Sadly it was closed, since it's open only on thursday,friday and saturday. Afterall I'm not sure there is more to see when you go in, than you can see from outside. Still, worth to see, there is also interesting story and rumours about it.

remarkable times
Aug 2019
The defeat of Rome but Theodoric the Visigoth marks the beginning in a certain way of the middle ages. However they were not so dark as sometimes mentioned. They just didn't have the means the Romans had. It still remains beautiful though

Not much to See
Aug 2019
Unfortunately there is not much to see at the Palace of Theodoric the Goth. Just like his mausoleum it has been stripped and the front is the only part that has survived from antiquity. It's a good place to stop on the way to other sites in the area, but don't spend too much time here because there isn't much to see beyond the mosaics.

Some interesting mosaics upstairs
Jul 2019 • Couples
This probably wasn't Theodoric's palace, but just a house from the period. Upstairs you'll find some nice mosaics. Should be free.

Underappreciated attraction
Apr 2019 • Solo
Right near Sant'Apollinare Nuovo but rarely visited. However, it's an interesting ancient building and contains an impressive collection of mosaics from the former palace. Extensive signage and explanations help visitors understand what they're looking at. Makes for a good bit of variety from looking at churches! You need to have a one euro coin, though, to buy a ticket from the ticket vending machine and opening hours are limited.

Small old palace
Sep 2018 • Friends
This is a very historical old palace in Ravenna and in general while it has a nice front and a small museum I would not think it is worth a long walk just to see it

The old palace of Theodoric the Great
Jul 2017 • Family
There are not many buildings left of the Ostrogoths, I doubt there is an other one. So to be able to see this unique building is something special. We couldn't get in because it was only open on sunday mornings in the summer. We only could walk around it.

Worth a Visit
Oct 2017 • Solo
This used to be a palace and has pretty well preserved floor mosaics as well. Worth visiting as if in the area.

Unassuming from the outside, but great mosaic floor collection upstairs.
Sep 2017 • Friends
Located directly next door to our Hotel Palazzo Bezzi, this structure looked unassuming from the outside, but holds a great mosaic floor collection upstairs. They also host special private events, including a grand piano music concert one evening. Pretty cool actually, and free admission. Right on the main street, but with limited hours, so try to find it open. Part of our mosaic tour of Ravenna. We started with a list and only actually missed one attraction in three days. Every attraction except one out of town was reached by walking in close proximity to the historic city center. We did not move the car one time, other than to arrive and leave town. Print some papers in advance from the internet and carry them with you to help you understand what you are looking at. Buy a nice photo book to take home and continue your studies.

Small but old and free
Sep 2016 • Solo
This is a small palazzo, which you've seen in 5-10 minutes. Nevertheless, the walls are still high for a ruin of this age. I'm not sure about other Gothic remains, but I know that relatively few items from Merovingian and Frankish times have been preserved, so I think it is quite amazing to have such a tall building surviving. Entrance is free, so if you are near Ravenna, it doesn't hurt to hop in.
