My wife and I happened upon this place in a guidebook about Tuscany. It was established by St Francis in the 13th century. The reference didn't do it proper justice. On the sprawling grounds there chapels, grottos, expansive vistas, a restaurant, and even an hotel. The gift shop holds a treasure trove of gifts, souvenirs, and tasty treats made by the members of the convent.
If you're visiting Tuscany (it's nearby Arezzo) and would like to visit a site off the well-worn path, visit Sanctuario Della Verna.
