The great high plains of the Piano Grande, below Castelluccio, are ablaze with wildflowers in spring, a famously glorious sight which, along with the lovely temperatures, bring walkers here in their droves.

Walk as far as you want – morning or evening light or a mid-day picnic are all options. But treat this as a loiter not a challenge!

See our Sibillini page for more general and practical information and photos.
