On this fascinating journey you will discover how the Benedictine monks lived, surrounded by spectacular natural scenery.

Your driver will collect you from your hotel and take you to Subiaco, a small village in the province of Rome, where Nerone is believed to have resided. Here you will visit two symbolic monasteries of this town: The Monastery of Santa Scolastica and the Monastery of San Benedetto. Situated in the Sanctuary of Santo Speco both monasteries have significant historic and artistic value.

Filled with statues and frescoes to delight you including the celebrated statue of San Benedetto sculptured by Raggi, one of Bernini's students. You will then visit Abbazia di Santa Scolastica ("Abbot at Santa Scolastica"), the location where the first book in Italy was printed, and have the opportunity to view paintings of various artistic styles from Romanesque to neo-classic.

A stop at the Benedictine Herbalist is a must. Santa Scolastica is the last existing monastery where the ancient method of cultivation, began by San Benedetto, is practiced. Here you will be able to find natural products that the monks have treasured since the beginning of time.

Before returning to your hotel, you will be able to eat in a local tavern where you'll be able to taste traditional "Lazio" dishes.

It would be a pity to relinquish such a tour!
