Though the Lonely Planet guide for Italy published last year in 2016 indicated that this attraction was free, today it is 1€ to see a very small old church with some magnificent mosaics on the ceiling. It was empty when I came to see it and if you're uncertain about visiting the other sites in Ravenna, this is an inexpensive... 更多
See same for Battistero Neonianio -these are all UNESCO heritage sites and rightly so. All 5 and the main museums are all worth visiting.
I too liked this baptistry , even though it is quite small. It's a quick in and out. You'll spend as much time trying to find it, because it's behind the normal street exposures.

The only free-entrance spot among the World Heritage sites in Ravenna, but when we visited on 10 October, the site was under construction and no visitor allowed. Wish they can get it done fast enough.
