  • The site seen from the outside is beautiful, the scenery is beautiful, the village from which it is surrounded, then you incantevole....ma guess the opening to visit inside there is a stuff of NASA scientists, as it must be done a particular alignment of the stars so that this can be done; Let me explain: Saturday February 25, 2017 we get there around 10:00 a.m. to visit the Abbey, we Park, take a ride around them, we make 2 pictures and we approach the entrance so you understand how to enter; Once you arrive at the entrance is closed, no indication of barred opening and nobody to ask around information! Wait 5 minutes and then decide to go away; at that time reaches a car parking there in the square from which descends a lady who seemed the place to which we request information about the opening hours: she almost embarrassed he replies that the site would be open in the afternoon because monks counselors were at the time all committed to opening ceremony of a road close by them. We remain a little surprised by the motivation for which such a beautiful place, the weekend was closed to the public, at a time that overall acceptable, for an inauguration of a road ... What to say? Its a shame that such a beautiful place, far from the traditional tourist routes is open only when someone runs well and decides to open ...

  • The town of Badia a Passignano is small but a gem. If you're lucky enough to find the open church this is a real treasure trove. Unfortunately it is not always possible to visit the Interior of the Abbey.

  • After so many years that it has been kept closed to the public, the Abbey has been partially restored and is open to visitors. It was damaged and restored several times, but it's still breathtaking already when we see approaching. There are no words to describe what you feel; you just have to see it so you can experience a thrill.
