Hello, visited Eremo Le Celle in october when visiting Cortona, we done this on foot about a 50 min walk each way,you may need maps as it was through rural roads, got details from a lady called Ramona in Hotel Italia in Cortona, We don't really know if there is Greorian chanting and we went there without a tour on foot, try contacting Ramona in Hotel Italia in Cortona, speaks good english and helpful about local attractions,
