Day 1 – Arrival - Rome - Spoleto - Castelluccio Di Norcia
Early departure from Rome to Castelluccio di Norcia. On the way you will stop in Spoleto. Nestled in a wide valley surrounded by the mountains of Umbria,
Spoleto is one of Italy's most beautiful hill-towns. Its majestic landscape and ancient city walls contribute to Spoleto's inviting atmosphere and make
it a wonderful place to tour. Its rich history includes the first Roman settlement of Spoletium which began in 241 BC. Its splendid architecture includes
the Duomo, the Teatro Caio Melisso and the Ponte delle Torri, the Bridge of the Towers, an awe-inspiring medieval bridge spanning 262 feet above the gorge below.
The tour continues to Castelluccio di Norcia that it’s is more than a simple little Umbrian town. Castelluccio is an emotion, a magic place where men and nature
blend themselves and find their harmony. Every year, during many weeks between May and July, an incredible mosaic of colours breaks the chromatic monotony of the
grazing lands and it is able to fill eyes and heart. Thousands of flowers bloom the plateau, bursting with colors, with shades ranging from yellow ocher to red,
from violet to white.
You can admire lentils (cultivated in Castelluccio, they are one of the most typical local products), gentianella, poppies, narcissuses, violets, asphodels, Eugeniae
violet, clovers, oxalis and many more.
