The Sibillini Mountains National Park is located in the heart of Italy and includes the highest mountain range of the Umbria-Marche. The Monte Vettore is its highest peak, it reaches 2479 m above sea level.
The park is a place of extraordinary beauty where time seems to stand still. A beautiful place for a great vacation, , you'll be surprised to see how an unknown region, away from the tourist crowds, can hide so beautiful and uncontaminated places.
The landscape presents different aspects: you’ll find cliffs and alpine landscapes rich in forests of beech and conifers, streams and rugged gorges, besides the presence of vast plateaus and gentle slopes almost devoid of arboreal vegetation.
Countless possibilities on trekking throughout the Monti Sibillini area, made relatively easy with marked trails and guided tours.
The northen cliffs of Monte Bove are popular for those who love rock-climbing and thanks to its morphology and environmental conditions the park is also a heaven for hang-gliding and paragliding.
Beyond skiing in the winter season, the rivers of the Forca Canapine area are great for rafting and canyoneering.
Thanks to the many marked trails for mountain biking, you can reach many of the most beautiful place in the park enjoying spectacular panoramic views.
We hardly reccomend to visit the towns of Visso , rich in history and also seat of the park , Amandola , Sarnano and Arquata del Tronto that is the only minicipality in all Europe whose territory is compesed by parts of two different national parks: the Sibillini Mountains one and the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga on. Do not forget Norcia, the birthplace of St. Benedict Patron of Europe, it is famous for its historical center and his special food.
It worths a visit also the Sanctuary of Macereto close to Visso ; the Lake Fiastra with its crystal clear blue waters; the Acquasanta Valley with its beautiful waterfalls and the grotta dell’orso, the Pilato Lake is the only natural lake but it isn’t easy to reach, it lays on the top of Mount Vettore, in the Marche once considered a magical and mysterious and known throughout Europe as a kingdom of demons , necromancers, and fairies.
Inside the park territory ancient culinary traditions are preserved, that fact alone is enough to justify a visit . The town of Norcia, for example, is famous for the production of wonderful salami. Do not forget to taste the typical legumes from Castelluccio plans close to Norcia and local cheeses , pecorino and ricotta.
A paradise that's worth a visit and we are sure you will be impressed and surprised by the beauty of th National Park o Sibillini Mountains.
