Beautiful setting. We tried to walk there. Asked the Tourist Bureau for a map (because we thought there was a walking trail) and they sent us somewhere else all together (by foot!). So, we then got in our car and drove. Easy drive. It would however be a lovely walk. I can't believe there aren't clear walking directions and that... More

The celle was a tranquil and amazing place. So enjoyed the peace that enveloped us as we visited. I was surprised at how moved I was by spending time in St. Francis' monestary.

This magnificent Franciscan monastery is located in a beautiful hillside setting just out of Cortona. The tranquillity of the monastery is palpable, and soothing to mind and soul. Access is via a narrow, winding road typical of the area, and there is a car park at the gate. There is no entrance fee for visitors although donations can be made... More

We drove from Cortona and enjoyed spectacular views. The road itself got quite narrow and rough at times, but once we reached our destination there was a small car park in which we managed to get a space. I can imagine in the high season, parking will be a nightmare.

A quick drive from town, a peaceful, beautiful setting. Worth a quick visit to contemplate the last place Saint Francis lived in.

Take the long walk from Cortona to Le Celle... bring water, pack some snacks, a friend to talk to, or music to listen to, and your camera. You'll find plenty of fun shots along the way.

Great unique atmosphere, magic place! A cozy chapel to visit. The sweet monks will guide you to discover this unbelievable corner. Never crowded, probably the best place in Cortona!

The location of this Franciscan monastery, which was founded in the Thirteenth century, is stunning. Some of the monastic cells seem excavated in the rocks overlooking a steep brook, which is more than murmuring for most of the year. It is approximately 2 Km from Cortona, and one can easily get there by walking along a main road by the... More
