Mount Subasio park is well worth visiting to get an experience of the natural world around Assisi and the small towns and villages that are within the park. There's history and ancient hill villages, chasms, thick forests and dry scrubland.
There are some excellent b and b's, agriturismo and hotels that can make a stay in the park a great pleasure. If you are planning to visit do get hold of a good map - there are many national paths in the park. The terrain can be tough- steep, rocky and treacherous and there is the slim possibility of encountering scorpions or snakes. You'll need good boots, I've just returned from a walking holiday in the park and never wore my walking sandals. Do take a good hat- perhaps not so necessary in the later autumn, but during our visit the sun was still strong! And make sure you have plenty of water. You can take water from fountains, but there really aren't many shops outside of the towns.

The Sweeping Italian countryside is lush and green. We enjoyed driving through the beautiful area and seeing the fields and the Italian people who call Umbria their home.

Wonderful place. Completely immersed in greenery and uncontaminated nature. However, there is a need to be very careful about signposting during the journey, the risk of getting lost is very high. Very suggestive and suitable for those who love long walks in the middle of nature.

From our small seater plane the outline is rounded, rising isolated between the triangle of Spello, Assisi and Nocera Umbra, its beauty spreading to the spectacular high Appenines. It's no wonder the park was regarded sacred considering it s mystical and magical surroundings. On the ground, the summit of Subasio is easily traversed retracing an ancient cart trail. It's motto scenic leading almost to the peak, with olive trees in every direction and woodland while above the distinctive hover of buzzards and goshawks. Our next stop is the grand dame herself Assisi

We drove through small and ancient villages (like Collepino), through a great views, colorful fields, and habitants who live peacefully with the surroundings.
Curved and winding roads, some through the woods, some overlooking distant castles on the hills, some go near unseco sites, some pass by places you must stop and have a good coffee.
A great way to spend few hours, out of the hot cities.
