Nice place surrounded by nature and small walking path. Has frescoes inside and it is an interesting place to visit if you have time. For those who like churches and history.

We went with our tour group and I will recommend a visit to anyone traveling to Rome. The Abbey is a short drive outside the Roman wall. You can feel the reverence and serenity as you experience the final journey of St. Paul.
