Every year, between the end of May and July within the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini, the Flowering of Castelluccio di Norcia is staged. In this period, Pian Grande and Pian Perduto are tinged with innumerable colors, thanks to the myriad of wild flowers that sprout among the lentil fields. Among these gentianellas, daffodils, violets, poppies, buttercups, daffodils, violet Eugeniae, clovers, shamrocks and many others.
To avoid the formation of kilometric queues, on weekends of maximum influx cars and campers are forbidden to pass through the plain and the parking, shuttle and bus booking service is activated on open parks. This is to allow users to witness this miracle of nature in full protection of biodiversity and local communities. In 2023, the sustainable mobility plan is active on the weekend of 24-25 June and the first three weekends of July (1-2, 8-9 and 15-16).
Once you have left your car in one of the established car parks, Castelluccio and the flowery plains can be reached via the shuttle service (by reservation) or on foot, by bicycle, by e-bike, etc.
