We came here for a wedding & the Abbey is absolutely stunning! We were told this is the oldest Abbey in Italy built in 1100! Perfect for a wedding:)!

We came in the morning and enjoyed a very leisurely walk through. What made the site endearing was our tour guide telling us the history to put us in right frame of mind. It was a very easy start to the day. Also a good...More
