Visit the Benedictine Monastery

The current health emergency has led to a significant decrease of the number of visitors at the Benedictine Monastery. In order to avoid suspending the service and keeping the daily opening, with considerable effort, we are however, forced to temporarily reduce the numbers of the daily guided tours.

Starting from Monday 17 January 2022 the guided tours by Officine Culturali of the Benedictine Monastery will take place as following:

  • Monday to Friday at 10:00 and 12:00 
  • Saturday and Sunday at 10:00, 12:00, 15:00 and 17:00
  • Friday, 28 January also from 20:00 to 22:30, a guided tour every half hour.

To participate in the guided tours, which are approximately 75min long, reservation is required by calling 0957102767 or 3349242464 during opening hours (also via WhatsApp message) or by writing an email to
