Niccone Valley Walk To Migianella

Yesterday afternoon I went over the route of the Migianella Walk from my book, Circular Walks On The Tuscany Umbria Border.

The walk starts with a climb from the Niccone Valley floor near the village of Spedalicchio. Near the top I stopped at this abandoned house to photograph the views and enjoy the views.

There were plenty of orchids out and an amazing display of dandelions in the fields and between the olive trees.

I made my way along the ridge towards the restored village of Migianella, it’s now private property so not open for a look around. Monte Acuto loomed large in the background and there were spectacular views across the Niccone Valley and towards the Apennine mountains.

I met some friendly Italians living the good life and raising goats and other livestock, after enjoying a glass of wine with them I made my way onwards.

Wherever I walk on the Tuscany Umbria border I am not surprised to come across a 4×4 Fiat Panda, I think this one was owned by people looking for wild asparagus, I could hear them chatting  in the woods.

Half way around the walk my camera battery packed up, but I think these photos give you a pretty good idea of the scenery you’ll come across on the beautiful circular walk.
