A Piedi sui Monti Sibillini
81 passeggiate, escursioni e trekking alla scoperta della natura
Collana A piedi in Italia
The dark waters of Lake Pilato and the views from the Carrier, the Prioress, the Sibyl and the Bove. The gorges of the Infernaccio and the Ambro, the ancient mule tracks for the passes, the vast horizons of the Pian Grande and the highlands of Norcia, Macereto and Ragnolo. The blooms of Castelluccio, the colors of the beech woods, the sudden appearances of the eagle, the chamois and the wolf. And then the places of human history, from fortified villages to castles, from hermitages set in the rock to abbeys and sanctuaries at the bottom of the valley.
The 81 itineraries described in this guide include the classic excursions to peaks, refuges and passes, shorter itineraries to ravines, hermitages and sanctuaries, and walks in the peripheral areas of the massif. There is no shortage of nature trails in the Park and the Great Ring of the Sibillini, a 120-kilometer trek.
