If you are living close to Cortona and you have nothing to do for 10 minutes, then a trip up to Eremo le Celle is fine, but if you are coming from far and wide don't bother.
I live in the Arezzo Province and brought relatives here based on the reviews. What a disappointment! There is nothing to see here other than the outside buildings themselves, a small chapel and room where St. Francis used, the room next door for buying religious memorabilia and a small church. Other than that everything else is blocked off and you have no access to anything else.
If you are in the Arezzo Province then go up to the sanctuary at Chuisi della Verna on the road between Arezzo and Bibbiena, towards Chitignano. There is far more to see and do up there, and I would give that a 10/10, whereas Eremo gets a 2/10. A total waste of time and petrol!
