It is very heartbreaking to see the town completely destroyed by the earthquake. But the plains are worth seeing anyway. The best would be if you had a mountain bike, motorbike or a convertible, if you don't, you can appreciate horse rental service down below...More

On a whim we decided to visit Castelluccio while in Umbria. And so glad we did! The car GPS took us through the route which was "officially" closed, so we ended up doing a circular route instead of doubling back through Norcia/Spoleto. It was a...More

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

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 -...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

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...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

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.
