Italy: Gregorian chant

We will be in Milan, Venice, Florence, and Rome in October of this year and are looking for locations where we might hear Gregorian chant. Anybody know where we should look? Thanks.

Gregorian chanting is done at times in the church of San Miniato in Florence (cross the Arno, climb the hill, or take a bus or taxi.) Do a google search to find out which times.

If you'll have a car, Sant'Antimo Abbey is really beautiful.

Rome - at Sant'Anselmo Monastery on Aventine Hill;
Basilica of St Paul's outside the Walls; daily vespers at 5 pm
Venice - San Giorgio Maggiore
Florence - San Miniato, as stated, a Benedictine monastic church
Milan - can't find a male Benedictine community there; Milan has the ancient Ambrosian rite celebrated at various churches, chiefly at Sant'Ambrogio Basilica, which can be called the Milanese version of Gregorian Chant.

Check out the church of the Most Holy Trinity of the Pilgrims in Rome (Santissima Trinita dei Pelligrini), which is not too far from the Campo de Fiori. This church uses the traditional Catholic Latin mass and Gregorian chant. These two websites will give you more information:
