We visited the Abbazia di Sant'Antimo near Montalcino to hear the monks chanting, which was fabulous. We parked our car in the parking lot right next to the abbey. When we returned, about 30 minutes later, we discovered a parking ticket in the amount of...More

We drove past the Abbey on the way back from a winery visit. We stopped and enjoyed it for a few minutes, but it is not the attraction is was in the past. It is no longer a working abbey and the chanting now comes...More

Really loved this place! The one regret I have is that we did not plan the visit to experience the Gregorian mass on Sunday. Very much worth the time to experience this beautiful place!

Enjoyable experience. Be a pilgrim, report history and enjoy this great place to visit in Tuscany. Superior video tour.

It's a little off the beaten track, but that means no big crowds. There were tour buses coming and going, but we arrived between groups, so it was very peaceful inside. There is little ornamentation inside apart from a few decaying frescoes and some carvings....More

This simple Abbey has something special about it that draws you in and caused us to spend some time admiring it and its surroundings.

Walk fro Montalcino ok but views not that great. Worth it for the exercise and the bus back is convenient.

I chose Montalcino because of the Brunello wine. You can see endless grape vines hanging low with grapes and experience beautiful views in & out of town. It’s definitely worth a stop!

Beautiful Abbey made of onyx which gives the building an special “glitter”. You get beautiful Tuscan views from this point.

I am using this topic to post a general review of Montalcino. When approaching Montalcino, the traveller gets a spectacular view of an ancient village on a hilltop. A walk through the inside of the city walls is also very nice. However, if it comes...More

We only spent a few minutes at the abbey but the area is lovely, there are many old and beautiful olive trees and the church is quiet, cool and peaceful. A nice break when wine touring.

Hello, the abbey should be open daily 10:30-12:30 and then again 2:30-6:30 pm But the chants are not live anymore ( but recorded) since it was a small group of monks who returned to their order in France. Last I had heard... More
