Fodor's Expert Review Convento di San Francesco

Piazza San Francesco, San Miniato, Tuscany, 56020, Italy

For a complete change of pace, you can stay in this 13th-century convent in the company of five Franciscan friars. Rooms are simple but quiet. You are given keys, so there's no curfew. You can partake in some spiritual activities or skip them altogether. All rooms have baths, four rooms accommodate three people, and one room has four beds. The city center is a 10-minute walk from the monastery.
