  • Very nice and well maintained complex. Interesting guided tour, bought at a low price through Groupon. I also recommend a visit to the mill and the "Giardino dei semplici" where it is harvested numerous medicinal plants.

  • The Abbey is a wonderful reality that defies time and memory. The work is surrounded by greenery, and nearby there is a small well kept cemetery attended by relatives and friends who remember their loved ones, living in a size no space nor time. This just a few kilometres from Milan. Within the dynamic Abbey monks sell various products fruit of their hard work, which is also prayer.

  • Beautiful trip out of town, it's worth seeing places so close and little publicized, frescoes of great workmanship, including a madonna by luini.

  • Hidden treasure, wonderful church and tower, impressive cloister in sadly neglected surroundings...with a delightful shop with a large variety of monastic food, cosmetic and Pharmaceuticals herb extracts
  • Amazing piece of Christian history dating back to 1135 in the Milan suburbs.
  • Remarkable abbey with outstanding artworks.
  • On the outskirts of Milan there is this beautiful Abbey. Beautiful shop run by the monks, I bought some products (that prices though!). The climate is impressive. For those who want to spend a day on the Green, in silence and without leaving the Council. The visits to the mill are at different times and dates.

  • Beautiful Abbey in medieval style. Visiting the Interior seems to take a trip back in time 1,000 years. They also organize events for children, like the Easter egg hunt and others. Engaging the market. Nice garden with garden. Also worth seeing are the old mill.

Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.
