This was my first experience of touring a monastery. I went with an Italian friend and we took the guided tour in Italian with a young monk. The Italian was a bit rapid for me but I understood enough to appreciate what I saw and...More

This is a beautiful abbey in the middle of the countryside. We visited the church, the shop where homemade products are sold, the garden, and then wandered behind the abbey past the long walls of the complex into the countryside. There are great views and...More

This didn't start out too well as the actual opening times on the website may not correspond with those on the website - so we arrived an hour early and everyone we asked looked blank (that could have been because of our Italian, of course!)...More

The outside of the church next to the abbey might not be very appealing. However, the regular guided tour - in Italian only - of the abbey's interior is very good. On weekdays, the monk's living quarters can be visited too. The shop has lots...More

One would easily drive by. Don't do that, just park your car and climb the stairs to the church. Enjoy the sight seeing in and out the church. And don't leave without a visit to the shop where their home made honey, candy and teas...More

We stopped here after visiting Petrarch's house a few miles away. Beautiful abbey, but unfortunately most of it had to be rebuilt in the 1800s after Napoleon and later the House of Savoy did a lot of damage to it. If you only speak a...More

It's an impressive building, in a gorgeous countryside setting. Gardens are very nice, they have many plants and flowers and herbs and the smell is very good. During the Vespers you can sit in church and hear the friars singing: very relaxing. The guide (a...More
