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.
