Trekking on the path of San Francesco

You will walk on the steps of San Francesco immersed in the Tuscan nature

Saint Francis, as we know, was a great walker. In his wanderings for almost all of central Italy he founded numerous hermitages, places dedicated to prayers and asceticism where it was possible to contemplate nature as a mirror of God. Francis's research was always directed to the discovery of new towns and cities, where he could preach and be of help to local communities, always seeking extreme solitude in the most inaccessible mountains.

A journey made of beauty and spirituality between Cortona and the “Eremo delle Celle”, the mystical place of Valdichiana Aretina

You can follow the footsteps of the Saint in a path inspired by the walks and paths of San Francesco in one of his favorite stops on the way back to Assisi, or rather Cortona. From the historic center of this beautiful village, through a panoramic and silent path on a dirt road, you will reach the Eremo delle celle (Hermitage) hidden in a narrow gorge among the holm oak and oak woods. You will feel full contact with Tuscany and you will be immersed in the sacredness of the place in a perfect combination of nature and spirituality.

 

Note:

During the trek there will be stops to recover energy, have a packed lunch and admire the most beautiful views of the Valdichiana. Comfortable clothing suitable for the season, backpack, water, sunscreen in Summer and a camera are recommended.
