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.

Well worth the walk up from the village. Spectacular location with fine views over the surrounding countryside. Many good forest walks nearby. You don't have to be a devotee of St Francis to appreciate this place!

I visited the monastery on a Friday the history and views are absolutely amazing. Even though the restaurant had limited types of food it was excellent. I would recommend visit here.
