San Fruttuoso Abbey - Abbazia di San Fruttuoso

Abbazia Di S. Fruttuoso Di Capodimonte is an abandoned monastery on the banks of turquoise water.

At the foot of Monte Portofino, this medieval Abbey of San Fruttuoso—built by the Benedictines of Monte Cassino—protects a minuscule fishing village. It is only accessible by a 20-minute boat ride or two hour walking path from Portofino and also reachable from Camogli, Santa Margherita Ligure, and Rapallo.

My friend, Jan, spent an afternoon swimming here on her trip to Italy last year. We can swim or just enjoy, depending on the weather in mid-September.

Join me and other women on our adventure to Italy. Deadline is April 4.


  1. Hi, just want to invite you and your readers to our site about the cinque terre
    ( in my signature ) and to the blog where you can also vote the nicest of the 5 Terre.
    Also a video section is online: Video of the Cinque Terre, a different point of view..

  2. Thanks for the great videos. I'll write an entry about your site in case my readers don't read this comments section. Have you been to the Cinque Terre in September, and do you have any suggestions for things to do?
