We initially were not convinced to go the Monastero but on arrival decided to go given the other reviews on TripAdvisor. We are glad that we did. The tour guide Nicola was one of the best tour guides we have encountered in Italy. His passion and knowledge of the history coupled with his excellent sense of humor made the tour not only unforgettable but entertaining as well. We would highly recommend this tour.

I was reluctant in visiting a Monastery, but being in a group of people I was convinced to go. We decided to go for a guided tour and it was the most amazing experience ever. The monastery is very impressive and monumental. Lots of great things to see and lots of history. Our tour guide, Carmelo, was very friendly and very passionate about the history of the place.

Sadly closed when we got there but the building is very pretty. Amazing details in the stonework around the windows, nice quiet place

For lovers of architecture and history, this is the place for you. The change in use over the years and the restoration by the university have all left an indelible mark on the building.
