Monasteries and convents in Emilia Romagna and the Marches

[Regions of Italy] [Back to Emilia Romagna and the Marches]

Since the time of the Crusades, this part of Italy has been full of sanctuaries and convents which offered hospitality to pilgrims. Here are some you might like to visit for a quiet hour or a few peaceful days. If you do plan to stay overnight, remember that these are most emphatically not hotels. They are spiritual retreats surrounded by the silent beauties of nature. Some charge a fixed price; others ask that you make a donation. Amenities are often less than basic: be sure to find out whether you need to bring your own sheets and towels.



Convents offering hospitality throughout Italy, including Rome, Florence and Venice, are listed in our newsletter.
