the idea is great- follow the track of a former railway road. The scenery is nice (bit nothing more), but since the railway tracks (logically) followed more or less the road spoleto-norcia, you hear the whole time the humming and roaring of cars and motorcycles. The walk is also one way: you go 6 km up, and then you must... More

Following the old railway's path you can discover one of the most suggestive and beautiful piece of nature that sorrounds Norcia. During your trip you can enjoy some farms, a little river and the beautiful mountain around you. It is a walking and cycling path. To try it if you are in Norcia.

its a great way to spend a half day doing some activities. I would totally recommend this to burn some calories after eating in Norcia. The only problem is that the ferrovia is quite short.

Whether you are a cyclist or on horseback or just a simple hiker, this venerable old route will allow you to travel in a natural setting, much of the time in parallel to the main road. The river runs just a short distance away and the Valnera valley scenery will make any physical hardship seem worth it. Must've been a... More

I took the part from Norcia to Serravalle. The route is cool but only 6 km. Then you would have to go about 8km on the street with cars in order to continue on ferrovia. Anyway, it was good.

This 12-mile walk is a classic. The start in San Antonio di Narco is a bit tricky to find, but after that it winds uphill through tunnels and woods, with great views over the Nera valley. After the long tunnel, we descended and crossed the spectacular big viaduct just above Spoleto. We then elected to enter Spoleto over the Ponte... More
