If you let yourself, you can go back in time here and sense the way of living 1000 years ago. This is a place of where you cannot hurry.

We attended a mess there, and we visited after. Mess and visit were very nice. This place is a beauty.

It depends on what you are looking for. If you look for an abbey sized as the St. Peter basilica in Vatican clumped with gold you will be disappointed.

I was the only visitor while I was there but the church is wonderful with a Greek influence. The grounds are beautiful and I am glad I visited.

There is often a large market at the bottom of the road that the Abbey is on.

Settled high in the hills of Rome, next to Grottaferratta's town centre and surrounded by urban life the Abbazzia Greca di San Nilo sits behind formidable in-tact medieval battlements.
