Follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis himself on this Assisi sightseeing tour. With round-trip transportation from your Assisi or Santa Maria degli Angeli hotel included, explore Assisi with ease by motorized tuk tuk. Listen as your guide shares the history of top attractions like the St Clare Basilica, the medieval Piazza del Comune, and the 12th-century Cathedral of San Rufino, and enjoy fine views over the vineyards.

The little village, the highest settlement in the Apennines situated at 1452 meters, was completely destroyed in the fierce earthquakes in 2016 and 2017, forcing the evacuation of the inhabitants and total closure of the village itself. All we can do is come to offer our support by buying some of the local products from the mobile stands. It is a tragic and heartbreaking sight today...

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 the town. But you don't need to. Just make sure you see all the plains, Pian Piccoló is a bit hidden and you need to walk a bit to see it. It is acccessible from the road from Norcia, right after you reach the mountain pass from Norcia, go right through a forrest to a big camper parking, leave your car there and walk a dirt road up the hill(cca 500m of light walk, you don't need touristic boots). You will be greeted by a great view of Castellucio with its plain Piano Grande and also the hidden small Pian Piccoló. Also, don't go there wearing slippers or flip-flops, wear enclosed shoes, the plains are full of thistles(you don't need touristic boots, just something to protect you from thistles).

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 bit dicey, the road was half blocked by earthslips etc. Probably won't do it again, but it saved us time. Now about Castelluccio...wow, that place has to be seen to be believed, towering mountains and that broad, flat plains which is the valley. Makes us humans feel so insignificant amongst the might of nature. So glad we did this, and would recommend anyone in Umbria to go have a look. It's a change from the normal Umbrian countryside and the little villages, but what a change!

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 with the severe earthquake damage, the locals have managed to set up a store and a restaurant (with an excellent lentil dish), and the views of the plains and the surrounding mountains are stunning.
