Monte Oliveto – S. Giovanni d’Asso

A spectacular drive through the crete senese landscape takes us to the Bendictine abbey of Monte Oliveto. Guided tour of the amazing 16thC frescoes by Sodoma & Signorelli telling the story of St Benedict. Our walk offers gorgeous views of a very different countryside as we walk up to the little village of Chiusure with a wonderful opportunity to look back at Monte Oliveto standing in the midst of tall cypresses. Our walk continues on along a ridge until we reach San Giovanni d’Asso.

Walking – 3hrs easy-moderate
