Quoting the famous
"Noio to go where we go, which way should we do?"( Noio per andare dove dobbiamo andare, dove dobbiamo andare) fase di Totò!
So why rely on satellite navigation systems well maybe not updated, why get angry about finding parking, why not travel the road, without thought of nothing but admire the view, you can eat and drink (a glass even more), without risk?
Today I want to propose a route between the mystic and the religious or the Sanctuary of La Verna.
A place loved by Ns dear St. Francis of Assisi, that even without modern and comfortable walking shoes, loved to wander around the center of Italy.
In fact, distant spring of 1213, decided to retire in this beautiful village between the quadrilateral Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Marche and Umbria, where he met the Count Orlando of Chiusi della Verna.
The Sanctuary of La Verna is placed Tuscan Apennines, a place full of beech trees, and which offers a fine view, it was here that St. Francis received the stigmata in 1224.

The Verna is the most famous monasteries of the Casentino, and true heart of worship Franciscan. The foundation of a hermitage dating to the first group show at the place of St. Francis, who in the spring of 1213 he met the Count Orlando of Chiusi della Verna, who, impressed by his preaching, he wanted to offer him the mountain of La Verna, which later became the site numerous and prolonged periods of withdrawal. In later years some small cells were built and the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli (1216-18). The decisive impulse to the development of a large monastery was given the stigmata from the episode (1224), occurred on this mountain, beloved by the saint as an ideal place to devote himself to meditation. The last visit of Francis to the mountain took place in the summer of 1224. I retired in August, for a 40-day fast in preparation for the feast of St. Michael and, while he was praying, he received the stigmata. Since then, Verna became sacred ground. Pope Alexander IV took her under papal protection, was erected in 1260 and consecrated a church in the presence of St. Bonaventure and several bishops. A few years later was erected the Chapel of the Stigmata, financed by Count Simon of Battifolle, near the spot where the miracle had happened. An older chapel, Santa Maria degli Angeli, built in 1218 to St. Francis from Orlando, is reachable from the sacristy of the cathedral, begun in 1348 but remained unfinished until 1459. From the latter the monks residing at Verna go in solemn procession twice a day (at 14 and midnight) to the Chapel of the Stigmata. On the feast of the stigmata (September 17) and on other occasions, many of the surrounding parishes and the faithful and tourists from far away come to visit these places, and monks are organized to receive and accommodate about 2000 to 3000 pilgrims.
The monastery was partially destroyed by fire in the fifteenth century. In 1810 and in 1866 the monks were expelled temporarily following the suppression of religious orders.
