We boarded our bus with Marcello and headed to Ravenna for a look at the amazing mosaics. We began at San Vitale, soaking up some of the scenes in the gorgeous church:
Next we went into the Mausoleum of Galla Placida, just behind the church.
We stopped for coffee or a cold drink, and visited my favorite glass shop, Anna Fietta.
I have been to Ravenna four times, and to this glass shop on all four visits. I LOVE this place!
This time I came prepared with a paper pattern of a small project I want to try making in glass mosiac. I bought my supplies with Anna's expert guidance, as well as a small Italian flag pin and an Italian flag mosiac.
We walked to the main piazza and had an hour free to wander, have a cool drink, shop, or explore more of Ravenna.
Next: Lunch and Dinner!!!
