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 you can imagine how the community uses the large spaces within the walls to grow... More

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 it was really worth the 40 odd kilometres we traveled from Vicenza. I love the... More

Free guided tours in the afternoons. We were fortunate to just have the two of us with a lovely monk. He spoke no English, so he thoughtfully guided us keeping the explanations fairly straightforward( we can understand a lot but only speak cafe/shop/station Italian). When we arrived it was very peaceful, with a lovely Church as well as the cloisters.... 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!) The obligatory tour is conducted in Italian but the chapter house, refectory and cloisters are... 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 to but too - the 'house' white wine is very dry. PS - double check... 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 are sold. Support this community!

It is very quiet..big and it is all the monumental semplicity of a religious and natural church and abbey.

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 little Italian pick up an English brochure and you can follow along if your guide... More

This Abbey is a must do visit . Its a tranquil place of beauty and peace. It has a complicated history of closures , re-openings and near destruction over many hundreds of years of its history. Thankfully it is doing well today , the Benedictine monks are delightful and full of pride in their home. They make all sorts of... 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 friar) is a lovely man. The abbey is better from the outside but the sweetness... More
