The highlight is the mosaic floor. The early Christian Architecture is impressive. We were able to understand the Romans through this spiritual church. A pleasant walk around the church.

I only discovered the existence of Aquileia after researching things to do, on day trips from our base in Trieste, which lies about an hours drive away. The descriptions of the early Christian mosaics and frescoes promised much – and delivered. The Basilica is as...More
