Basilica di Aquileia reviews
Really impressive church not in the normal way when you have to look up but in this case to look down at a large mosaiq. The work that must have gone into it leaves you in awe more »
Not only is this church beautiful, the mosaics are gorgeous and the whole complex is worth visiting. There are other places to visit in this city connected to her history, interesting as well. For... more »
Magnificent wall to wall late Roman mosaics great you on entry. Watch out for early Christian symbols such as Jonah being eaten by the whale, as well as cameos of Roman figures. You've also the crypt with further mosaics, some early black and white. Plus an area to the rear with spectacular wall paintings. The bell tower gives incredible views. The rear is worth a visit as it's a world war two cemetery, and has significant, sobering artwork, including an angel lifting a fallen soldier.
Very pretty and not to buzy but it isn't a place to visit for a whole day because it is quite small.
