St Francis of Assisi stayed here, the view is mesmerising, the visit relaxing and peaceful. You can do a really nice half an hour walk around. We take guest here on our Walking Tours with Caspin Journeys

An absolutely stunning surprise. You can fell the serenity immediately. A beautiful soulful experience. Take a picnic lunch there is an area at the entrance with toilet facilities. Just out of Cortona. Take a leisurely stroll & relish the peacefulness.
