An evening "different" from the schemes .... a wonderful Monastery open only for us (after the Faithful had gone), an expert and very competent guide, who showed us all the spaces that can be visited, also explaining many things that we did not know about the Orthodox Christian doctrine. In the end an exclusive dinner, all for us (excellent among other things) in the refectory of the Confratelli. Absolutely not to be missed.
The experience is great. The history of the place is interesting. The views from the bell tower, over the illuminated city, are stunning. The dinner, of Russian food, is plentiful and excellent. Highly recommended
Dinner in the monks' refectory will remain an excellent memory. For the visit, the explanations were clear and precise.
Unique cultural and genuine experience of dinner in a monastery. Great guiding.
