Sacra di San Michele Guided Tour

An exciting half-day excursion starting from downtown Turin to discover Sacra di San Michele, known worldwide for having inspired Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose and then the film which starred Sean Connery.

Considered one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe, the Sacra was built on the top of a mountain, overlooking a breathtaking panorama over the Alps and the valley. In order to reach the so-called “Doorway of the Zodiac,” the visitor has to climb 243 steps but at the top, the view is unique.

Enjoy a guided tour to discover the “Zodiac Door,” the “Staircase of the Dead”, a steep stone staircase with a huge 18-meter high pillar – that supports the floor of the church above – and the tower of the “Bell’Alda,” with its astonishing view of the Valley and of the “Via Francigena.”

Meeting point: Every Sunday (from 2nd April to 29th October), departure at 8:30am from Piazza XVIII Dicembre – Turin
