    Beautiful place. I still order their bread and jam online. Amazing place that should be on everyone's bucket list.

    Definitely a Bucket List trip. One of my favorite places...so much beauty and I always feel so much peace here. Every time I've gone, there's been an adorable kitty tour guide who likes to walk you through the Grotto. I hope he or one of his descendants is still carrying on the tradition.
