Castelluccio di Norcia

Cities and Towns in Umbria

Castelluccio di Norcia is a village in the region of Umbria located in the Appenine mountains, which is the mountain chain which runs through all of central Italy.  It is situated at  1452 m, making it the highest settlement in the Apennines.
 
The village itself is located above the "Great Plain" (Piano Grande - 1270 m), next to the Monti Sibillini National Park and is said to date back to 13th century or even slightly earlier, and is thought to have been settled by the Romans.
 
Rain and meltwater accumulate on the surface of the plain, which is made of largely impermeable sediments. The greenish ditches drain the water towards openings called Ponors, which are part of the karstic underground drainage system. If the karst drainage is blocked for any reason, water backs up and turns the plain into a temporary lake.
 
This is an incredible area of Italy to visit, making for excellent photographs.  The roads are challenging getting up here, however it is well worth it and we highly recommend this experience.

Client Testimonials

Jesse,
There are no words to describe the fabulous time we had in Italy. Everything went as you promised. Absolutely no problems! The venues were fabulous. The guides were punctual and helpful. It couldn't have worked out better. You and your staff deserve high praise for the quality and efficiency of your work. BTW, Guiseppe was an absolute delight. We enjoyed his informative and effervescent personality he was a hit with our group. The serenading was an added bonus! Our stay in Calabria went well too. Thank you for all your work and coordination for making this dream come true for us! If any of us travel there again, you will surely be hearing from us. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as well. Ciao for now,
