Grado and Aquileia

I managed to check out some of the 4th and 5th century mosaics in Aquileia.

And, even more exciting, two 6th century churches on the island of Grado south of Aquileia. Check out the level of preservation:

the variation in the columns used in this church:

Yesterday was more time in Aquileia and today was an entire day in Ravenna. So, more soon!

  1. I’m so envious! Aquileia is next on my list. Are you moving on to Pula and Salona? Thanks for posting. PG
