Battistero Neoniano (Battistero degli Ortodossi), erected partly on the site of a Roman bath, represents the most ancient monument remaining in Ravenna. The octagonal shape symbolizes the seven days of the week plus the day of resurrection. Look toward the ceiling for a mosaic of John baptizing Jesus, with the twelve apostles surrounding the pair in the outside ring. UNESCO recognized the art here as both early Christian and decidedly Greco-Roman, and thus a piece of world heritage. Avoid timing your visit with that of a tour group, as they allow in only a limited number of tourists at one time. Use our Ravenna trip itinerary site to visit Battistero Neoniano (Battistero degli Ortodossi) on your trip to Ravenna, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
