Mosaic by night: discovering Classis Museum and the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe

From EUR 15

This summer, four special evenings with the night opening of the monuments will bring you to the discovery of Classe, now a fraction of Ravenna, but formerly a Roman port city and military outpost of the fleet of Constantinople on the Mediterranean.

Discover the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Classe, defined as one of the greatest examples of an early Christian basilica and recognized by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Despite the spoliation suffered over the centuries, the church still preserves the beauty of the original structure and it is admired for the splendid polychrome mosaics of its apsidal basin and the ancient marble sarcophagi of the archbishops located along the side aisles.

Furthermore, our itineraries will lead you to discover the Museum Classis Ravenna, the last born among the city's monuments and which has become the cultural point of reference for anyone who wants to fully understand the history of Ravenna. A compelling story that features one of the most important cities in the Mediterranean, three times capital. The story develops inside the museum using multimedia, plastic and multi-projection equipment used as a support to the visit and to illustrate the various themes.
