Description - Italy's Sibillini National Park by Gillian Price
This guidebook describes 21 day walks, and one 8-day trek (Grande Anello dei Sibillini) in Italy's Sibillini National Park. Including short strolls and suitable for all walkers, with day walks ranging from 3.5 to 20.5km, the Sibillini in Italy's Apennines are easily reached from the budget airline destinations on the Adriatic coast and from Rome. The Monti Sibillini straddles the Marche and Umbria, close to the towns of Norcia, Ascoli Piceno, L'Aquila and Perugia. Details of accommodation, refreshments and public transport along all the routes are also included with full-colour sketch maps and profiles. The area has a long walking season, from early spring to late autumn, and refuges open from mid-April to mid-October. Little known to foreign visitors, they offer vast highlands smothered in wildflowers, canyons burrowing deep into mountainsides, accessible ridges with breathtaking views and over 50 peaks, many over 2000m.
