My company is an approved agency for booking with Monastery Stays in Italy. Most typically, you can book a stay in Rome, Venice or Florence. Most monasteries are located centrally as they were there before other buildings. This is a convenient and inexpensive way to stay in Italy.The price to book with me is exactly the same as booking directly and you have the assurance of dealing with a person in Canada that speaks English and can help you make some decisions. You do not have the ability to speak with Monastery Stays directly. Usually they require a deposit up front to make the booking and the balance is paid directly to the Monastery on arrival. Please call me at 587-410-3765 to discuss your booking needs.
