Meh. Robbed of another day by Trenitalia. How can it take seven hours to transport two people by 100 kilometres? Anyways, we are in Ravenna, and did what there was to do in one day. They are big on religious mosaics, which are quite stunning in some cases and are a pleasant change from damned gold gaudy iconic paintings of the same four images repeated ad nauseum. Also, Dante’s tomb is here. Also, a theatre named after him with a statue that gives one sympathy for Pygmalion. I’m getting travel jaded (as evidenced by my lazy use of a rhetorical question above), so getting home to Padova tomorrow will be just the tonic.

Galleries for Florence and Ravenna are done.
