We traveled out to San Galgano on an afternoon in October, so it was not very busy. We were shocked at the large parking lot there where I imagine tour buses pull in. We were fortunate that there were none there on this day. It was a nice way to spend time wondering around just taking in the architecture and walking up the hill to the church. Very pretty and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. You can appreciate it from this sight. We had a little lunch outside at the cafe right across from the abbey too.
