Whatever you do, don't forget to go to the Piano Grande! It is maybe not so well known, but it so breathtaking beautiful. The Piano Grande is a plateau, shaped like an amphitheater, whith the Sibillini mountains as a magnificent decor. The highest point is that of the Monte Vettore (2475m).

The Piano Grande is located on the border of Umbria and Marche close to the town of Norcia. The way to the Piano Grande from Norcia is also spectaculair. The road climbs from 500 to a height of 1500 meters still being able to see Norcia and the surrounding landscape. It is beautiful sight seeing everything getting smaller, with every mile you drive. It is like looking at a minature world in the end. But when you go over the top, on the other side you see the Piano Grande..... WOW, I sight I will never forget.

Directions: The Piano Grande is located on the border of Umbria and Marche close to the town of Norcia.
