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 to me because of its defiant setting perched on a small hill, dwarfed by the... More

Returned this year at the end of June - hoping to see the fields of lentils in full bloom - almost! Fields of poppies dotted with blue and white were stunning. Stop on the road and admire the view of Castellucio in the distance - and look for the trees that were planted to make the shape of Italy. Eat... 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 of the Castelluccio valley covered by flowers of different colors. Very impressive. The scent is... More

This tiny town was a highlight of our trip to Italy! We were lucky to have family from Rome take us here and I fell in love. We met more relatives who live in Castellucio and it was a great experience. The scenery is unlike anything I've experienced and the town is a quiet change from the busy streets of... More

Remote village north of Norcia in the mountains where legumes grown in the valley. Recently revisited after our first visit several years ago in the springtime. Each season is vastly different. Wonderful to watch the sheep and shepherds. Excellent for hiking.

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 is a place to replenish your energy, smell the flowers and hear the buzzing noise...

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 picture postcards. We spent only about an hour or two in the town, as it... 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 is great (up in the Sibilini maountains) and the small village on top is great.... More

Just one of those places in the world that haunts your thoughts. Very remote. Very very beautiful. We live in a wonderful area for motorbikes, an hour from sea to snow, from the Adriatic to the Appenines and in the Appenines this is a lovely destination if you are biking.
