This part of Italy between Assisi and Pescara is off the beaten track, but filled with great outdoor activities such as hiking, horseback riding and hang gliding.

Castelluccio, which was inaccessible due to the 2016 earthquakes, can now again be accessed. The road from Norcia is open daily 6am to 10pm, the road through Forca di Presta is still officially limited to emergency and special permit vehicles. It is amazing that even...More

I returned to Castellucio again this summer for a long hike in the surrounding hills. It was the bank holiday weekend, so a tad busy. Notwithstanding that, you will always find a place to park, just requires a bit of patience. The town is magical...More

We were passing Castelluccio on the way from San Benedetto to Perugia. Took the road which goes on foot of the Monte Vettore. Driving there is obviously a fun, and requires 100% attention all the time. After passing by the mountain, we've got spectacular view...More

You have to come here at a right time, when all the flowers are in bloom, probably from the beginning of May till August. If you do come, you will be shocked by the beauty, fields and fields of poppies, chamomiles and other flowers. It...More

The drive from Montemonaco to Castelluccio is spectacular, through green verdant mountains, winding through small hamlets and then into the higher, more arid zone where the mountainsides are dotted with sheep and wildflowers. The final valley of Castelluccio is the celebrated view one sees on...More

End of July is the perfect time to visit Castelluccio - all the colour are vivid and flourishing! A perfect place to walk on a plain surface - rare thing in Monti Sibillini ;-)

While you are in Umbria, you will visit Assisi and Perugia and some of the wonderful villages. But if you want a day in the nature, with one of a kind drive in the mountains, go and visit Castelluccio. The drive is great, the valley...More

Hi i suggest u to come in July, for beautiful flower fields, also if it's very chaotic, too much traffic. Maybe August can be better for less people.
