Rotonda della Besana – Italian abbazia

This wonderful and historical building is situated near the city center and it is completely open for visiting and relaxing.

In fact, the church in the middle is surrounded by a giant colonnade that provides plenty of shade and chilling spots during the summer.

This sheltered space is full of different types of people during the day. There are children playing “game of thrones” with their little friends, young guys chilling and playing with some toys, people training for their sports and others just sitting, reading or smoking cigarettes.

In the middle of the area, inside the old church, there is a cool locale that offers different things. The food area with the happy hours and fresh drinks and the shop sides with hundreds of games for children and strange gifts for adults.

In this place it’s wonderful to breathe in the majesty and wholesomeness of this place, mixed with the carefreeness of a chilling afternoon.

I suggest you get there in the late afternoon in order to make a round and visit the colonnade and then stop at the Mom bar (check out the article), return and finish the trip with a happy hour.
