The wondrously varied landscapes of the Sibillini make for memorable outdoor holidays at any time of year, and holidaymakers of all grades of walking expertise will find something to get their boots into.
There are leisurely strolls across flowered meadows and paths down eerie canyons, dizzy high ridge itineraries and a host of walkers’ peaks. Thanks to dedicated nature lovers and environmental activists, in 1993 this wonderland finally became the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini, encompassing 700km2.
This guidebook by Gillian Price provides a selection of 21 day walks ranging from 1hr 30mins to 6hrs in duration. In addition, a magnificent 8-day trek circling the Sibillini is given in detail: the GAS – Grande Anello dei Sibillini – is highly recommended and accessible to everyone, as nothing of a mountaineering nature is required.
Access – for the Sibillini the most convenient places to fly into are the airports on the Adriatic coast: Ancona, Pescara and Rimini. Also fairly convenient are Rome’s two airports. All have bus connections to railway stations.
