The plains are full of thistles. Also, don't forget to check out Piano Piccoló, it is a bit hidden. You can reach it from the mountain pass Norcia-Castellucio, arriving from Norcia, right when you reach the pass and glimpse the plains, you reach a crossroads,...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...
