This abbey is a beautiful quiet stop along the drive to the Po Delta - wonderful frescoes and no crowds. Nice gardens around it too.

The high tower invites to visit from the distance when you travel the road Choggia - Ravenna. Big car park in the outskirts with some souvenir shops, food and drink. The interior is magnificent, with beautiful frescos, sculptures and mosaics. Very quiet and peaceful place....More

One of the most beautiful churches I have seen. The walls are covered with very well preserved frescoes and the floor with the most amazing tiny mosaic tiles. The place has a lovely atmosphere similar to Torcello in Venice.

This isolated abbey is on the site of a monastery dating back about 1500 years. The church frescoes are quite amazing and well worth seeing. Outbuildings contain some interesting museum exhibits. A 5 euro entrance fee is charged. Clean toilets and food outlets are nearby....More

This abbey was built about a thousand years ago with many of the buildings rebuilt and updated. There are lovely frescoes and grounds. It is very photogenic. It is also of great historic interest.

Worth the detour - Nice architecture and free visit. There is not a lot to see in the area but you'll be amazed by that abbey if you pass by.

On saturdays and sundays volunteers give you access to the bell tower. The Abbey is a beauty, the floor of the church fabulous, frescoes on the walls.
