Worth A Visit : Included in the combo pass. We waited 45 minutes to go to the top of the abandon "new" front entrance to the Cathedral. Totally worth it for the views. Several people turned back because of the tight spiral staircases. It really was not that bad.

Outstanding Views : Situated in the staggeringly beautiful Montalcino agricultural region, Abbazia di Sant'Antimo is a historic Benedictine monastery well worth visiting, especially by those interested in Christian spirituality and/or herbal remedies and cosmetics.
