Abbeys of the Susa Valley [Full-day Trip]

At 30-minutes drive from Torino center the Susa Valley   is the gateway to France and northern Europe.

On our first stop we’ll visit   the Church of Sant’Antonio di Ranverso, which is set amid pastures and sports stunning medieval frescoes. Then we’ll drive to  Sacra di San Michele, a tenth century monastery perched on top of a cliff overlooking the valley where you’ll be literally taken away by its mysticism and mysterious charm. After lunch  we’ll go further west to explore the city of Susa, with its Roman ruins and beautiful medieval streets. There, we will have time for shopping  local goodies in the main street.
