In the solitary spaces of the Great Plain of Castelluccio di Norcia, Steve remains fascinated by the landscape known as “Tibet of Italy”. He captures a group of people horse-riding at sunset, and the sportsmen paragliding (www.prodelta.it) during the first hours in the morning.
In Valnerina, McCurry’s lens stops on the rafting along the Nera river. Through medieval villages and castles up to the Marmore falls (www.marmorefalls.it), where the adventurous sport is the protagonist: a man canoying shinning down a 165 meters drop and a group engaged in the canoe-rafting through the hairpin bends of the Nera, draw the photographer’s attention (www.raftingmarmore.comwww.raftingappennino.itwww.asgaia.it)
After Orvieto, there are the Gole del Forello: appreciated both by those who do trekking and those who practice speleology.
Around the Trasimeno lake, nature invites the visitor to do more relaxed activities, such as horseriding, walking or cycling, through places like Castiglione del Lago, Tuoro, Passignano and small picturesque villages as Montecolognola, known as “the town of the sunsets”.
Many chose the Trasimeno also to do aquatic sports such as kytesurfing , sailing, or birdwatching.
An then, Monte Cucco, an international destination for paragliding and hang-gliding, as well as for walkers, cyclists, speleologists, climbers divided between free climbing and boulder.
There are also. walking and cycling routes, such as the Saint Francis’ routes (www.viadifrancesco.it).
