Tucked away on the Italian Riviera between leafy hills and foamy turquoise surf, the Abbey of San Fruttuoso is its own little slice of heaven. Accessible via a sun-kissed cruise or a brisk hike through hilly woodland trails, arriving at this hidden oasis makes for some golden memories, no matter which way you approach it.
Once a sleepy fishing village, then a notorious pirate cove, the beautifully restored Benedictine monastery has a tale or two to tell. Sunglasses? Check! Ticket? Check!
