Italy's Ravenna: Bits of Byzantium
Quiet Ravenna, a city of 140,000 with a car-free center, has a fascinating history that stretches back to Roman times. Its remarkable Byzantine mosaics make Ravenna a rewarding detour off the Venice-to-Florence tourist path. In this month's video you'll get an up-close look, and also see how mosaic tiles were made back in the time of Justinian.
