Trek to Umbriano and San Pietro in Valle

A short but captivating trekking excursion to discover two immensely prestigious gems

A short but captivating trek to discover two immensely prestigious gems: the grandiose Abbazia di San Pietro in Valle and the ghost village of Umbriano. We will set off from Macenano, a small village in the heart of the Valnerina, to reach the Abbey. After seeing it, we will head back towards Macenano, taking the path that leads to the ruins of Umbriano, the most famous ghost town in Umbria. From here, a splendid mule track leads back to the banks of the river Nera, crossed by the celebrated countryside path known as the Greenway.

The itinerary (a circular route that includes an outward and return section) extends along paths and dirt roads. The surface underfoot is in good condition with some moderately rough, uneven sections (and very occasional muddy patches in the case of recent rain). Many sections are exposed to winds. Along the route there is only one refreshment and water supply point and very few sheltered areas in case of sudden rain.
