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
