General information


Città della Pieve – glimpse of a typical street

The various Community Centers are located in the lush green country side around Città della Pieve, a small medieval hill town on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. Those wishing to visit the many art places in the surrounding area are advised to come by car.

All one-week seminars and courses start on Sunday at 4.30 pm and end on Saturday with lunch at 1 pm.
Weekend seminars start either on Friday at 4.30 pm or on Saturday at 9.30 am and end on Sunday with lunch at 1 pm.

The seminars include the overnight stay and three main meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Specific food requests (allergies, intolerances) need to be communicated at the time of booking for the seminar. Normally, participants will stay either in double or triple rooms with outside bathrooms. The requests for single accommodation needs to be communicated directly to the Secretariat at the time of booking.

The booking requests will be accepted up to 15 days prior the start of each activity.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that single rooms will be available.

The Community of Living Ethics is based on group cooperation; thus course participants are invited to help with some daily tasks (e.g. clearing tables and washing dishes) together with those Community friends, who are offering their service to the group during that period.
