Discovering the most beautiful trails of the Sibillini Mountains. Hiking with Francesco Capozucca

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text="National park of Sibillini Mountains" font_container="tag:h1|text_align:left|color:%23b7995d" google_fonts="font_family:Vollkorn%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal"][vc_custom_heading text="Hiking with Francesco Capozucca" font_container="tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23b7995d" google_fonts="font_family:Vollkorn%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal"][vc_separator][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="343" img_size="full" alignment="center"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]A strong attachment to his home and a passion for the environment led Francesco to explore the beauty of the untouched nature near Norcia and in the Monti Sibillini National Park since he was a child, when he used to look for mushrooms with his father. Now he has turned his passion into a real job. 'Hiking along the paths, nature lovers are enchanted by the charm and magical atmosphere that the Sibillini Mountains evoke,' says Francesco. 'Anyone, at any age, can become a hiker. Even those who are not trained and just want to take a quiet walk in a fairytale world... all they need to know is which are the right paths!' The Pantani near Accumoli or the hills that frame the Pian Grande and Pian Piccolo near Castelluccio, for example, offer breathtaking views and unimaginable feelings. Those who are more adventurous and accustomed to walking, on the other hand, can venture over the highest ridges, above 2000 meters, to Monte Vettore, the highest peak with its 2476 meters; Palazzo Borghese, the beautiful summit of Monte Sibilla; and Monte Bove where 'if you know where to look, you can always meet some of the beautiful Apennine chamois that live there,' recalls Francesco. And the Sibillini Mountains retain their charm in every season. Even in winter it is possible to take beautiful walks, using snowshoes when the snow falls to reach a fairy tale kingdom. 'The interest for winter hiking is constantly growing,' says Francesco. 'People are curious about it, even when it comes to proposals that sound ‘extreme’ such as walks from sunset to nightfall in which, after enjoying the colours of dusk, you walk through woods and clearings among thousands of footprints from wild animals under a blanket of stars, or in the moonlight, and you discover that stars don’t fall only in August.' Francesco spends much of his life in the discovery of the secrets that the Sibillini Mountains reveal him so that he can share them with anyone who follows him on his adventures.

A tribute to this land and its immense gastronomic riches. The “Vespasia” project was created and is operated by Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi, the latest generation of a family of enthusiast restaurateurs, with a tradition that began in the 1850s and continued without interruption. This is a tribute to this land and its immense culinary richness. The restaurant “Vespasia” is located in the Palazzo Seneca Relais & Château, a noble palace dating back to the 1500s in the artistic heart of Norcia, a few steps from the main square of St. Benedict, between the Castle of Vignola and the convent of St. Francis, the latter transformed in recent years into a stylish auditorium. The restaurant “Vespasia” gives out a sense of harmony and peace. Here innovation meets tradition, treating it with respect a child should treat his father. Everything at the “Vespasia” tells the story of this land – style, colours and flavours that are simple but at the same time intense. Details always make the difference, and therefore they were treated with great love and attention. At the “Vespasia” the Guests can even choose their seat between comfortable padded chairs and large leather armchairs, both created by master Umbrian craftsmen. The table can be in the more intimate ‘black’ fireplace room and including wine, candles and wooden furniture, or between the lemon grove and the old stables, overlooking the inner courtyard. When the weather permits, guests can eat outside where, in addition to peace and tranquility, they can enjoy the view of the towers, bell towers and, in the distance, of the Sibillini Mountains. The scent of aromatic herbs from the garden completes a top-quality location. But it is at night that the restaurant “Vespasia” expresses its greatest charm. The candles are lit, the lights dimmed, the staff consistently checks that everything is perfect – it’s time for the show! The silverware, the crystal glasses and the spotless table linen are overshadowed as the dishes prepared by the Chef Valentino Palmisano and his staff, the real protagonists of the restaurant “Vespasia”, arrive. The recipes you can taste at the “Vespasia” stand out for their elegance, refinement, tradition, creativity and real professional ethics. Colours, scents and flavours want to carry those who taste them on a journey to discover this land, full of great products, great history, simplicity and love for good and healthy things. Every Saturday night, you can also enjoy the soft notes of live jazz, swing or blues that good musicians reserve for our guests. Everything to make yours a memorable evening.

We have put together history, design, simplicity, genuineness and creativity to bring you into a new Umbrian tradition.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the historic center of Norcia, few meters away from the main square, there is one of the most prestigious and exclusive buildings of Umbria: 24 charming and refined rooms, equipped with wi-fi, wellness center with jacuzzi, aromatherapy and massages and the gourmet restaurant Vespasia, a unique environment which combines taste, tradition and innovation. At home in an Umbrian palace: this is the atmosphere you will find in this charming 16th century charming residence which opens its doors in Norcia, at the heart of Umbria. Fusion between design and innovation, simplicity and quality, are the secret of this new elegant project promoted and realized by Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi, the latest generation of a family that has been offering Hospitality and Catering in Italy since 1850. The skilled restoration, the research of unique materials and objects along with the work of the best Umbrian craftsmen, make of Palazzo Seneca a unique destination. Please don’t consider us a simple hotel. Palazzo Seneca was built in the 16th century by the homonymous family from Piedivalle, a town near Preci, whose inhabitants were famous as skilled wood carvers. Among their works is the wooden choir of the Basilica of St. Benedict, which no longer exists in the church, and the choir in the Abbey of St. Eutizio. Inside is a large stone fireplace dating back to the 16th century, topped by the family crest which depicts a bar in the middle of which rests a compass and, under it, three roses. Compass and bar are a symbol of the guilds the family belonged to. Palazzo Seneca was the first hotel in Norcia and among the first in Umbria as it opened in the early 1900s. The residence has undergone several changes over time, but it still maintains intact, on the ground floor, the features of the vaulted rooms typical of the 16th century. The structure underwent a major restoration following the earthquake of 1997 that ended with the reopening in June 2008, when the hotel went back to being one of the most beautiful monuments of Norcia. Palazzo Seneca is considered a very safe building from a seismic point of view. It has passed all the tests carried out by technicians from the Civil Protection Agency and by a highly skilled team of engineers and technical experts following the earthquake that has hit all of central Italy since August 24th. The Relais & Châteaux Palazzo Seneca was declared "fully habitable" as indicated in the AeDES technical sheets that you can download from our website.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The noble art of Norcineria dates back to Middle Ages and was common in all the families. This company cultivate legumes such as the Lentils of Castelluccio (PGI) and cereals; in addition to the ‘pink pig’, they dedicate together with the University of Perugia and Regione Umbria to the rescue of ‘belted black pig’, an extinct native race. In the skillful Alessandro hands, the meat becomes hams, salami, sausages without adding gluten, lactose and milk derivatives. Love for nature and animals brought to realise a Didactic Farm in order to let everybody spend magic moments in a place full of surprises!!! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]abc
