Wondering around the beautiful abbey church was a great experience. Remembering that over the years people have worshipped here. It holds a treasure .... The reliquary of Saint Clement who was one of the early apostolic fathers, Bishop of Rome AD 88-99.

Well described in both English and Italian in the museum. It can be found on the right of the front door. Make sure you walk around the outside to appreciate the gardens.

The abbey is beutifully restored. The stone monuments inside are carefully ciselled and look like new. Worth a detour.

We visited this Abbey with a friend. It is a majestic building and very tranquil. There are gardens to wander around, though not big, and a museum. It is only open in the mornings so timing of your visit is essential. I would certainly put...More
