"Norcia – sausage and magnificent hiking" Norcia by Trekki
Norcia Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 54 photos
Norcia is a tiny village in eastern Umbria, surrounded by magic mountains. Initially I came here to see the famous Piano Grande, but could not see the magnificent wild flower blooming, as it was too early (these are changing the plain into a very colourful flower carpet early July). But at least I saw this fascinating forest at the hill slopes, where the trees have been cut to leave the shape of Italy only.
The fact that I couldn’t see more of Piano Grande was also the reason that I didn’t stay longer in Norcia, although this lovely little village deserves much more attention and justifies a stay of 1-2 days. But I will be back for sure, but then in early summer or autumn.
That’s also the reason why my Norcia page is rather small, it is of a stay of approximately only 3 hours.
From Norcia I went further southwest and found the most charming place to stay at Abbazia San Pietro in Valle.
