Abbazia di Fiastra is lots of things - an old abbey church with lots of interesting features that is well worth a visit. A huge park and nature preserve where you can walk or cycle and enjoy the countryside. Take a picnic, or eat at the very good cafe on site. You can do lots, or you you can do little - we just loved the atmosphere there - very restful.

We bought a combined at the archeo park for all of the sites around, we received a discount bcause the rocca was closed.

when we arrived at the abby the ward wantdd to know why we got discount a told us the other guy made a mistake. After a quit long discussion she let us in. A very unpleasant experience.

abbey itself is mediocre, but nice to see, nothing too exceptionnal.

Dear Mr. Borghmans Tom,

we are sincerely sorry for the misunderstanding. If you come back to our Abbey, it will be a pleasure for us to make a free guided tour of the rooms around the cloister.

Best regards,

Francesca Cola

We were there in May in a beautiful sunny afternoon. We had lunch in one of the restaurants and then we had a guided tour in the monastery. The guide spoke good English and he was enthusiastic and eager to share with us all the knowledge he had about the history of the place. We learned new things about the Italian history, culture and religion.

Have to confess that we didn't spend much time looking at the buildings, just hired a couple of mountain bikes from the Information Centre and did the 11km rude which ran through woodlands, pastures, wheat fields - beautiful but challenging in parts and had to walk the bikes a few times up hills etc. would recommend the shorter walks/rides if you have small children.

Lovely people at the Info Centre. The cafe/pizzeria had some fabulous looking cakes /tarts which looked homemade.

Car parks were quite full but the grounds are so vast that we barely saw anyone on the paths.

If you want to have a fantastic lunch and a good walk (to walk off the amazing food!) then head here. It's a beautiful place for long or short walks and picnics, as well as an amazing restaurant (Da Rosa). We saw herons and a family of wild boar, with little 'humbugs' in tow, beside the lake, taking a drink.
