What you'll do

I will wait for you outside the ticket office, where we will meet all the participants; nearby there is a bar where you can have a coffee or another drink before starting. The tour includes a guided tour outside and inside the monastery, with a professional tour guide who will tell you anecdotes and details of one of the most rigid and at the same time eccentric religious orders. I will point out the symbols and make you appreciate the worked stone of Padula, with which the wonderful monumental staircase was made. Once the visit is over, we will reach the beautiful early Christian Baptistery of S. Giovanni in Fonte with our own car, just 4 km away. Very few know this place that I consider a real "place of the soul", a rare example of a Baptistery built on a perennial source of water. The amenity of the place and the high biodiversity allow us to observe also some species of plants and animals that I will make you recognize. Admission is free and is a place for most unknown, a real "gem", it will be worth it!
Other things to note
The cost of the experience does not include the entrance fee: € 6 for adults; check the possibility of a reduced or free ticket at the ticket office of the Certosa.

Hi, my name is Viviana Ricciardone and I am an official tour guide. I started bringing friends around in my favorite places of my territory, until 4 years ago I got the license as an official tour guide, making my passion a profession. I love coming into contact with new people, letting them discover the history and traditions of a territory that I know very well, having studied it and being born and grown there; give advice, tell anecdotes. I believe there is nothing better than being accompanied by an expert to get to know a new place or culture. Ready to follow me?

Where you'll be

We will meet outside the ticket office. After the presentations, we will start our tour from the external courtyard; we will admire the façade and explain the role of the buildings facing the court. Once inside the monastery, we will visit all the rooms open to the public. Then we will move with our own car to the Battistero di San Giovanni in Fonte, just 4 km far from the Certosa, a unique place of its kind. Unmissable!
