“If you are not in a hurry, and you have some time, I recommend you to visit Castelluccio. It’s only half-hour from here, and it is really worth it” told us the girl at the reception when we were about to leave Norcia.
Never a piece of advice has been so appreciated.
Castelluccio is indeed an incredible place, clung on a hill, isolated by everything, surrounded only by the Sibylline Mountains and by the Piano Grande - an immense glade that in June all suddenly blooms (we were too late to see the valley at the peak of its flowering, but could nevertheless have a taste of what it could look like in June…).
Of all the places where we have been during this short vacation, this is certainly the one that conquered our hearts.
We will certainly come back. Perhaps in June…
