The abbey was extremely powerful in the past, as it controlled the route from northern Europe to Rome. It is now open for visits, there is a very interesting pharmacy, as well as the church itself, Interesting to see.

Exaggeration is not necessary. This is not a top-level attraction, but it is close to the SP55 and it’s free, so take a break and have a look. It’s a nice Roman church, and when the sun plays through its narrow windows, it’s quite attractive. There is no monastry to visit, just the church, and a little shop disguised as a pharmacy. Worth a short stop after all (30 mins).

This historic building in the Tuscany area is so beautiful and well maintained. I do not have pictures from the inside as a mass was being said. But the structure oozes history. If your in the area, stop in, its worth it.

My husband and I spent Christmas week in Casa di Alice, a lovely two bedroom apartment in the small hill town of Castelnuovo dell'Abbate. The town is beautiful and it made the perfect base for day trips to Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and Arezzo. We loved our time here; the residents are lovely, friendly and helpful, although most are not English speakers.

Things to know: The town is very small; there are two small restaurants but at least in the off season, they have limited hours. There is a small coffee/wine bar just steps from the apartment with lovely wine selections and a small grocery store that stocks the basics. The town is very hilly and parking is down hill from the apartment. We didn't find it a problem, but those with mobility challenges would. Also, most of the wineries in the area are closed this time of year.

It is necessary to take a small detour to reach this beautiful Abbey. But it is worth it. Imposing building in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. Free visit to the interior. Austere but very beautiful. It takes us back to medieval times

This is a beautiful church; it was a refreshing to see the simpler interior, after all the gold leaf and rococco in the big cities. We rented the self-guided audio tour and it was worth every minute of listening time. We stopped in the little shop and bought some honey and some herbal soaps and shampoos. A very peaceful, spiritual place!

Great place to stop for a quick visit. Maybe the largest Italian Cypress I have ever seen. Ancient historical site with lots of things to see of interest and can be done in a relatively short visit between vineyards.

Historic, welcoming, worth stopping to explore. We enjoyed every minute here en route to Mastro Jani for a tasting. We used the self guided tour info.

I've visited Sant'Antimo at least 5 times and it never grows old. The grounds are beautiful and the abbey itself is a deeply spiritual and peaceful experience.
