Basilica di San Vitale
We made our way to Ravenna today and had so much fun. Ravenna was a perfect little day trip and the city is very easy to navigate. We were amazed with the mosaics and the simple beach feel of the city. It was a hot and humid day but we were in a lot of churches so we were able to keep cool.
The Basilica di San Vitale
The Tomb of Dante
Mausoleum di Galla Placidia
The Basilica Di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo.
We took the city at a great pace, enjoyed everything we saw, and made it back home by 5pm so we could relax and make dinner at home. We rode a regional train there and back and loved the extra space we had (four seats between us all) so Taryn could play and we could have some space. There are a few downsides to regional trains though- they are slower, the often smell like B.O., and they are hot on hot days. We were fanning Taryn, sitting with the windows open, and drinking tons of water. You can see how red her checks are! But even a little heat can't make us dislike the day. We had a great time together just enjoying the time we had.
