"To quote from the brochure -" San Fruttuoso by craic

San Fruttuoso Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 51 photos

"- this is one of the precious stones blonging to the Unesco. Set in a suggestive bay it is a small village of fishermen who make turism their main occupation."

It is bog old. Built a very long time ago. And round about here the Christ of the Abyss was submerged at 17 metres.

We did it for the walk. My husband sometimes says - There would be nothing wrong with Italy if all the religious sites and artefacts were removed.
Now he is going way too far - because this abbey is sweetly pretty and obviously anciently venerable.
But we did do it for the walk.

    OK, your husband goes on the ballot here - even Berlusconi would vote for him! <(•¿•)>

    I had to smile when I read about your feelings on the walk- my husband is super-fit but I also run out of puff. I always get a lecture on my bad habits. You know what I mean lol ???Anyway- the sea looks pretty.

    What a precise, step-by-step description of your adventures. We loved the area so much, we went back when my husband's sister came to visit us.

    nice page - been to SML 4 times, but never SF. You certainly did NOT want to walk to P Vetta or Ruta, way up the mountains. We have driven both there and Portofino from SML, fun driving. Nice pictures. N.
