This abbey is roughly halfway between Venice and Ravenna on road SS309. It is next to a comfort stop which has toilets and a cafe, which is actually why our bus tour stopped there. There is a small entrance fee (I think five euros) but it is well worthwhile taking the time to see inside. The abbey was associated with the Benedictine monks and was an important centre for preservation of manuscripts during medieval period. The church has beautifully preserved mosaics on the floor. The attendant was cleaning them with water when we were there, so the designs stood out beautifully. The walls are covered in frescoes in good condition, some of the images quite playful.
