Mosaics and Baroque Painted Dome in San Vitale

Late Antiquity meets Baroque. The magnificent mosaics in San Vitale overshadows the baroque dome painted more than a millennium later. San Vitale is a highlight of any visit to Ravenna to see the eight UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listed sites of early Christian monuments and Late Antiquity (and Byzantine) mosaics.
