It is a bit far from Assisi, better drive there if it is hot. Once there you can breath fresh air and rnjoy the different tracks and walks in nature. If you have enough time is worth the visit.

This is a beautiful place of spirituality. Walking in the forest and seeing how the friars must have led a life of peace with nature. It is quiet and not a tourist place.

Please understand, this is a Holy place. A meditative St. Francis spent years here in prayer and penance. It is not just a tranquil walk or a neat trail, it is a space for personal reflection in the presence of God's creation.

This place brought tears to my husband and I . It was so emotional to see the place where Saint Francis was incarcerated . This spiritual and peaceful experience definitely can change some people's values.

The ambiance was delightful and we enjoyed the old pictures of life in Assisi on the walls however the waitress we had was indifferent. Quick and not interested in our questions. Won't be back.

Be warned this is quite a long way from the city and the city maps underestimate the distance..A stiff climb over a few kilometres. But I did it and I am 70. Very moving site. No refreshments availabe at the hermitages and picnics forbidden.

Opposite the entrance is a parking place. If you go before or around 10:00 in the morning, it won't be to bussy and without busses. May God bless you. Felix van Hulsen.

I don't remember exactly. I think it was about 5 euros per person for a shared cab.
