The tour concludes with the wonderful Basilica of San Vitale of the 6th century, testimony of the Roman-Byzantine empire reunified after the Aryan period. With an octagonal central plan, the church still preserves the splendid scenes of the Old Testament and the famous panels of the imperial couple Justinian and Theodora of the Eastern Roman Empire. Next to the Basilica of San Vitale we will visit the Mausoleum of the Roman Empress Galla Placidia of the 5th century, rich in unique mosaic decorations.
