We visited the Sanctuary in October and were totally taken aback by the setting, its history and religious importance. But most of all, we were amazed by the fantastic collection of Andrea della Robbia sculptures - their beauty, size, prominence in making the Sanctuary the...More

It's a sacred mountain, where St.Francise built his monastery and founded the franciscan order. It is fantastically beautiful and feels special. Must visit. There is plenty of free parking even in high season. Situated at the altitude of 1,2 km it is much cooler there...More

This is a very sacred place where St. Francis spent important time. This is located in the National forest where Francis received the stigmata of Jesus. It's extremely quiet and contemplative and very different from the commercial aspect of Assisi. If you are at all...More

I have been going to La Verna for many years; it is a singularly overwhelming experience--both for the artwork and for the sheer spiritual nature of the place. Not to be missed.

A must see in this area. Slightly hairy ascent in the car; beware coaches descending round the hairpin bends! Well worth the drive. An incredible, peaceful and spiritual site. Beautiful basilica with amazing ancient wall ceramics; the corridor fresco stories are fascinating and very impressive....More

I'm not sure, but would imagine that this is possible. You could probably go to their website and find out. It's really worth the effort to go here.
