AQUILEIA

Aquileia is the ages - old city in the northern Italy, near Venice. It was one of the three places, we visited that middle May day. Aquileia has a reputation as a city where the largest known Paleo-christian mosaics floor in Westerm Europe are located. We focused our visit to the Basilica of Aquileia.

    Very interesting place and surely mosaics... they remind me Bardo Museum in... Tunis. I traveled close to Aquiléia many times and I didn't visit it. Now, I know more and I'll stop there for sure!
