This is the sums up our day:


This was probably the most serene place in which I have ever been blessed to spend a day.

Abbazia di San Pietro in Valle from the front

We approached the Abbey from behind the day before so from here you can see our route coming down hill

The only walking we did on this day was to walk far enough to take the picture above.  We also had our feet massaged today….aaaahhhhh.  We toured the beautiful church that was attached to the Abbey.

The altar of the San Pietro Chapel

And that night we had a wonderful meal at the restaurant in the Abbey.   The region is known for it’s cured meats so we had a lot of proscuito and salamis.   Something that I had not heard of before in Italy, they garnish the cheese with honey while enjoying the cold meat plate.  yummy!

cold meat plate
guinea fowl with liver sauce and spinach - it was delicious.
fruit with custard - mi piacere - I like it.
