  • Osteria di passignano é if pre a quality assurance and in the service that the quality of the food. A local with prices to fit any budget, but not superb. All this thanks to the chef and to Marcello for the quality they can find to make great dishes. Philip

  • For those who love the mysticism surrounding the old monasteries and Renaissance art, the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo, with its splendid Cenacolo del Ghirlandaio represent a "treat" not to be missed. The upper room has been recently highlighted a new lighting that enhances the contents. All this amid the unique Chianti hills which, individually, are worth a trip especially in spring and autumn, when the days are extraordinarily bright. The area is also renowned for its characteristic restaurants where you can taste the best of Tuscan cuisine. Be careful though to prices because, over there, don't mess around!

  • Only the scenery is worth the visit. But there is also a beautiful Abbey that finally reopened to the public in 2016, with the famous cenacolo del Ghirlandaio renovated. There are three restaurants superb (one of which has a Michelin star) and a panoramic bar for snacks and light lunches. There is a charming bed and breakfast in a medieval tower. Badia a Passignano is lost amid the vines Antinori, where time stands still and where one breathes the most magical atmosphere of Chianti.

  • Interesting place
  • The Abbey seems almost like a castle and dominates a hill that can be seen from the road: it has the form of a monastic complex fortified with towers at the corners, which was later enlarged with the addition of a cloister and a wall. The current appearance dates back to the 19th century restorations, when the Abbey was privately owned, but overall there are also original elements of the 13th century. The gateway to the monastery, which is now occupied by a small community of vallombrosani monks and which can be visited on request on Sunday afternoon when one of the monks is available as a guide, is located in front of the Church. The front door in 15th century stone you enter into a small square with two towers. The refectory, the kitchen and the rooms are overlooking the cloister and within the Abbey there is a library with scrolls and books. Very nice is also the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo. Outside the walls of the Abbey is the small village of Passignano with a 12th century tower house and the Church of San Biagio, which inside school frescoes by Ghirlandaio. You don't know what to do on a Sunday afternoon and don't feel like going to Ikea? Come and take a walk to Badia a Passignano and you won't be disappointed.
