Highlights
    What to Expect
    An exciting half-day excursion starting from downtown Turin to discover Sacra di San Michele, known worldwide for having inspired Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose which starred Sean Connery.

    Considered one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe, the Sacra was founded on top of a mountain, overlooking a breathtaking panorama over the Alps and the valley. In order to reach the so-called "Doorway of the Zodiac," the visitor has to climb 243 steps but once at the top, the view is unique.

    Enjoy a guided tour to discover the whimsical "Zodiac Door," a 12th-century doorway sculpted with putti (cherubs) pulling each other’s hair, the Staircase of the Dead, a steep stone staircase with a huge pillar that supports the floor of the church above and the tower of the "Bell'Alda," with an astonishing view of the Valley and the "Via Francigena."

    A bit of a trek from Turin as the last 15kms or so is on very winding roads. We hired a car from the airport - 50 minutes distance. The road is very twisty, but not all that busy. The Abbey is stunning both inside and out and there are fabulous views. There is even an easily
