  • The guided tour has restrictive hours (better check before) but recommended: charming especially the homes of hermit monks and the life of the monastery. Worth a stop and some buying of local products (liquor, preserves, oil).

  • We were at the certosa for an event and we decide to visit the facility. The visit (strictly) led 11:00 15:00 9:00, 10:00, at 16:00, and 17:00 (summer only), and lasts just under 40 minutes; the guide prepared and passionate Pier accompagneraà you inside the facility, in the rooms and in the cloister and will explain how the lives of the monks proceeded in 600 years that remained "active" free visit but an offer is appreciated. You should also visit "sistilleria" where you can buy some products of the monks as liqueurs, honey and candy. Located a few kilometers from the motorway exit, making it almost a mandatory stop if travelling along the A1. The times are not very large (such as Sunday morning and Monday whole day is closed), check the website of the Cistercians (I can't post the link)

  • In Galluzzo, just outside the route of the highway for Siena, standing on the hill called monte Acuto, in a stunning cypress forest, here is the certosa del Galluzzo, founded in 1342 by Niccolò Acciaioli, Grand Seneschal of the King of Naples. Among later buildings mainly Renaissance and also prebarocche, this complex is of majestic beauty and striking, beyond the architectural and artistic evidence survived closures and miscellaneous thefts. Inside, in addition to the impressive central courtyard and the monks ' cells (wider, large and bright also other facilities like that), to remember the monks ' Church (medieval), the Church of San Lorenzo, down late Renaissance with the choir of the lay brothers and the wooden stalls. Unfortunately I do not view the art gallery (has some paintings by Parsons), but visited the store where they sell the products of the monks, including the rosolio to orange is really remarkable

  • Lovely, unusual place to visit while in Florence. I had a marvelous guide who explained off-beat things like the interaction of "cloistered"/silent monks and "lay"/speaking monks. He chanted to demonstrate the marvelous acoustics of the main church emphasizing the role the strategically placed holes in the ceiling and near the altar played to amplify the monks' voices. Well worth a visit and so much less crowded than any of the main Florence churches.
  • Open every day except Monday from 06 at 19. Mystical place very interesting
