We stopped here after visiting Petrarch's house a few miles away. Beautiful abbey, but unfortunately most of it had to be rebuilt in the 1800s after Napoleon and later the House of Savoy did a lot of damage to it. If you only speak a little Italian pick up an English brochure and you can follow along if your guide speaks no English. Very interesting and super peaceful. I would be climbing the walls in 2 days, but I am not taking the same journey as the religious men who stay there. Nice shop selling lots of agriculture based products from the Abbey. Check the schedule before you go as it only open for tours on a limited schedule.
