Day 69.

Ravenna. A beautiful city in the northern Italy, a jewel from the medieval Italy. I've now spent three days there and returned to Rome and I will post the pictures as soon as possible. Other than that, I'm dead tired, but eager to return to my explorations of the past, and some rest is going to be needed before tomorrow.

A mosaic from the San Vitale in Ravenna, depicting the emperor Justinianus who reigned the (eastern) empire 527-565 AD.

An on the other side was his empresses.

The bishop seat in the same basilica. Kinda looks like a throne, doesn't it? It's probably very intentionally.

The paintings in the dome, redone during the baroque.

One of the many round campaniles in the city which makes for an excellent shot.
