The mosaics of the Basilika are really impressive and worth seeing. But definitely worth experiencing is the adjoining Baptistery. It somehow lets you feel a bit like Indiana Jones.
The people here were once baptized Christians: An octagonal building with an interestingly hexagonal baptismal font, surrounded by six stone pillars.
Anyone can stand to churches and baptisms personally as he want to. But a place like this one, with such a massive energy that you can just feel in this room is a truly impressive experience.
