  • Always a good visit to the Abbey of piona. Relaxing and well maintained. A prayer to our Lady in the beautiful little church. A coffee in the bar on the descent. Don't forget to pass by the store x buy herbal teas honey bitter and x. Always impressive. We would always go back there again.

  • We were only in Colico for 24 hours so while my husband was working I drove from Colico to the Abbazia di Pione. The drive is not long (6-10 miles from town center) and pretty well marked. It is quite...  more »
  • One of the few monuments open between the end of the year festivities. A pretty crèche was installed for the occasion. Little information on site and the info on the net are in Italian. However to see

  • Very beautiful place & worth the twisty-turny cobblestone roads to get there. We biked from the Domaso side of the lake which was an adventure (there are nice bike trails, but you do have to take the main road at times which can get a bit hairy). Very peaceful abbey that seems to be a hidden gem. Great views of Lake Como, nice olive trees, and pretty flowers. Must try the chocolate croissants from the cafe - the are the best we've had in Europe so far! Bathrooms are standard squat toilets (there was toilet paper, but I'd advise having tissues just in case :).
  • A short break from crowded roads and cities. Road there is challenging, but worth to go there.
  • If you manage to find this place, that definitely requires to have a car or motorbike, you will enter another dimension. To me the greatest surprise of como. The monastery is amazing, very quiet atmosphere, great Park and a fantastic place to have a picnic, on your way to verona for instance. I strongly recommend this place far from tourists and difficult to find.
  • It's a magic place.
