Description: A professionally guided walk by Sara.  Located in the heart of Chianti Classico, the Abbey of Passignano is a medieval monastery that was founded in 395 A.D. by the Archbishop of Florence. Saint Giovanni Gualberto, founder of the Vallombrosan Order, a reformed branch of the Benedictines, established a community of monks at the Abbey of Passignano who were specialized in viticulture and forestry. The Abbey’s Church has preserved the reliquary of Saint Giovanni Gualberto since his death in 1073.
