Definitely worth a stop. Massive structure over 800 years old missing a roof but otherwise in very good condition. 45 minutes is well worth it.

The moment that I learned about this site, I knew I had to see it for myself. Dating back to the 1200's, the Abbey is steeped in history and legend. It is isolated and off the beaten track, which only adds to its mystery. The...More

Well worth the drive out, very well kept abbey (only walls). The entry ticket allows entry to the museum in town, as well as the church on the hill above with the sword in the stone.

We rode vespas to the abbey for a day trip! The views were beautiful! Be sure to make the hike up to the viewing point at the top for a lovely view of the abbey and surrounding areas.

Just go, summer or winter, day or night. Visited several times and always great. Don't miss the opportunity if there's a concert or a show during the night.

As others have said, a wonderful ruin. When we were there, they stopped us from going inside as a wedding was taking place. We were told that if we wanted, we could visit the nearby chapel (Eremo di Montesiepi) that was located on a small...More

We didn't have the normal tourist experience here, because we were here for the wedding of our son in law's sister. And a gorgeous venue it was too. We did notice that the real tourists seemed to enjoy their visits.

We had our wedding here and it was a dream! My family went back the day after the wedding to bc the day of it was a whirlwind. It's such an impressive space. I highly recommend. Go early in the day and avoid the crowds.

The ruins of the old abbey are charming, though there is no art work to see. The visit is worth for the surroundings.
