Definitely worth the trip

If you are in the area definitely try to get to this Abbey. You will not believe how long ago this Abbey was built.

It is a beautiful place, in the countryside, surrounded by olive trees, but I expected more of the gregorian chants.

Such a beautiful place. Listening to the Gregorian chants echo throughout the abbey gave me chills. The views of the abbey, with vineyards, olive trees, and a hilltop town nearby were stunning.

A glorious Romanesque (my favourite period) abbey set in archetypical Tuscan landscape. I felt an immediate sense of peace & the centuries which have passed since the church was built.

We recently went on a hiking tour of Italy and visited Sant'Antimo Abbey. I found it one of the highlights of our trip, and something I never expected to see or experience. We hiked to the abbey and arrived just in time to hear the monks chanting. Certainly I have heard Gregorian chanting, but to actually have the experience of... More

Visiting this abbey was an unforgettable experience. Take a small break from the pleasures of good food and wines and contact with your spiritual side. We arrived early and watched a Mass with Gregorian chant. The tour would not be complete without sitting in one of the many places available outside the abbey to enjoy the scenery and the peaceful...

Just walking through the main doors I felt like I was going through a portal into an older time. The monks were chanting, the incense filled the air. Seeing the white robbed monks in prayer brought me along to an other place at an other time. My suggestion is to plan a visit for Sunday morning around 10 a.m. It... More

There are already so many reviews of Sant' Antimo that I don't think I could write here anything really revelatory. Let me just say that we were absolutely impressed by this place, its unique atmosphere and tranquility. Do visit the abbey and let it take you many centuries back – even just for a while. An experience that you won’t... More

This is a lovely place to visit if you are driving yourself through Tuscany. The building is old but in remarkable condition. The friars are active, and if you time things correctly you can here them singing. Set in lovely rolling Tuscan hills. There were tourists there but not too many. I did note that some of the tour groups... More
