Full description
Famous worldwide as the inspiration for Umberto Eco’s bestselling novel "The Name of the Rose" (and for the film adaptation starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater), the Sacra di San Michele is regarded as one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe, and is available to visit from Turin via shuttle bus. Depart Turin and journey to the Sacra di San Michele by private coach, and get ready to experience one of the most beautiful abbeys of the Italian Alps. The bus leaves from Torino Porta Susa and will take you to your destination. Here you can discover the history of the Abbey and admire the breathtaking panorama over the Alps and the valley. You can also choose between the shuttle bus alone, or the shuttle bus with access to the Abbey.

Very nice and interesting tour. What I don't understand is why the rest of the attendees had already paid for the visit to the Sacra and we were not given the option. The guide Manuela very good and, in addition, she did everything possible so that we understood the explanation in Italian perfectly.

Beautiful experience, avoid Sunday if possible.

The journey started in time and reached its destination within 45 minutes. The guide was extremely good and helpful. But charging 22 € for such a short trip (I chose the option shuttle bus only) felt too much. The Abby is definitely worth a visit. I am happy that I could visit this place.
