We visited the Piano Grande for a walk on the Monte Valleta. The Road from Norcia to Castelluccio has only been open since july 2017, after heavy damage caused by the earthquakes in 2016. We were devestated when we saw the closed (and guarded) remains...More

I have always been astonished to see the beauty and tranquilaty of mount Sibillini and Castellucio. In spite of what has happened there recently I will always travel there every year.

We visited three times, and had three different experiences. The first time, late May, we did a 4 hour hike around the large flat valley floor. It was a sensational experience, walking through acres and acres of wildflowers, buttercups, daisies, wild pansies, miniature daffodil and...More

The pictures of this place don't do it justice. This whole area of meadows---with their palette of wildflowers---will take your breath away. But husbands/boyfriends be forewarned: your wife/girlfriend will not let you leave until they take hundreds of pictures...

This high plain in the center of the Sibillini mountains is best known for its little castle town AND for the flower fields that blossom in June and July mostly. You can reach it driving up into the mountains from the medieval town of Norcia,...More

A beautiful place in the mountains, splendid views from a fairy tale. I loved the flower fields of different colours - the whole place looks like a mosaic of colours in a soft dim umbrian light. Worth a car trip!!

It's so different from the surrounding regions, a lush green valley. Apart from the fairytale town of Castelluccio in the center of the valley there are no buildings, and you'll be looking at a patchwork of flower fields, beautiful hills, mountains and rocks. Plan your...More
