The Flowering of Castelluccio di Norcia 2023: useful info to live an unforgettable experience

Fioritura di Castelluccio

Flowering of Castelluccio 2023

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.

Sustainable mobility plan

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).


This year there are two methods:

  1. SUNDAYS: during the days of 25 June and 2, 9 and 16 July, the passage of cars and campers is forbidden. For those traveling with these vehicles, for all three entrance doors to Piani di Castelluccio (Arquata del Tronto, Norcia and Castelsantangelo sul Nera), the ONLY WAY to access the flowering is to leave your vehicle in one of the car parks (by reservation) indicated below.
  2. SATURDAYS: a “hybrid” mode is adopted on 24 June. This means that free transit is allowed for all vehicles, without prejudice to the absolute prohibition of parking on the lawns, and at the same time the proximity parking service and shuttles are available by reservation, again through the parks open portal. As regards the following three Saturdays (July 1-8-15), the method of use is established from time to time. If critical traffic-related situations are recorded, the same procedure as for the 4 Sundays will apply.

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.
