Book Now Inquire Booking

From EUR 50

A poetic and spiritual journey: in the Divine Comedy the place of devotion par excellence in Casentino could not be missing: La Verna. The "Crudo Sasso intra Tevero e Arno" as Dante defines it in Canto XI del Paradiso (106 - 108). It is surely a tribute to Saint Francis who received the Stigmata, "the last seal", on September 17, 1224, which he brought for two years before his death on October 4, 1226. The route is divided into a two-day journey with about 7 hours of journey per day. The indicated fee includes only the guide and the stay. Meals are at the expense of the participants.
