We recently detoured through Castelluccio and Norcia while driving from Ascoli Piceno to Spello. The road from Aquata Del Tronto to Castelluccio via Pretare was open, and seems to be at all times. The road from Castelluccio to Norcia (the SP477) appears to be open...More

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

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
