Certosa di Galluzzo
Florence, IT-FI 50124 Italy 055.204.9226
The shop bar across from this monastery’s distillery is ideal for a post-lunch digestivo. Cistercian monks make liqueurs, a tradition carried on from the original Carthusian monks in the imposing hilltop monastery, Certosa di Galluzzo, built in 1341. Sample various liqueurs for €2 a shot. Stack them up with the original Chartreuse (means “Charterhouse” or “Certosa”) famous yellow-green liqueur made in France, also available here with others to compare. Before tumbling downhill consider a visit inside the monastery: book a tour with a monk, leave a donation. Hours 9-12 a.m., 3-6 p.m. Two miles south of Florence through metal gates on west side of street uphill — no sign but monastery is visible. (Bus 37 or park on top).
