We just got married here and didn't visit until a couple of days before our wedding and it was so beautiful. We were so pleased.

The ruined abbey of San Galgano, standing among fields and rolling hills in a remote part of Tuscany, is very remniscent of similar ruins in France and Britain. The grounds and surroundings are very well maintained too, but not to the degree that the atmosphere...More
