Trekking to Scoppio, the Ghost Town of Umbria

Back to the exploration

Trekking to Scoppio, the Ghost Town of Umbria

A uniquely beautiful trek on the trail of the mysterious ghost town of Scoppio.

From the small town of Le Coste you will climb up to the Umbrian ghost town of Scoppio. It will appear to you from the path as if it were a jewel suspended in mid-air. From there, the adventure continues with a thrilling and slow climb up to Cima Panco: boundless meadows offer views across all the Umbrian valleys. Indeed, there is no corner you will not be able to see from up there.

The circular route of this Scoppio trekking excursion extends largely on mountain paths, with short portions on dirt roads. The surface underfoot is in good condition but there are several bumpy sections (and muddy patches in the case of recent rain). Many sections are exposed to winds. Along the way there are no refreshment or water-supply points; there are also no sheltered areas in case of sudden rain.
