We walked to Lucchio Alto from the house we were staying in at the even smaller village of Zato, which is on the other side of the hill. It's a brilliant walk along a narrow mountain path, which opens up to reveal fabulous views of...More

After a winding adventure on the narrow asphalt route towards Lucchio Alto we were fully rewarded. Lucchio Alto is the second smallest village in Italy and its aprox. 80 inhabitants which is literally suspended on the rocky hill beneath Rocca fortress. Rocca needs immediate support...More

Driving to Lucchio wasn't so bad. You walk to the rocca. It was fun climbing and taking pictures of isolated homes and the scenery. Many cats around. We only saw two ladies in the whole town.

We drove past the road to Lucchio just by chance and decided to head up the mountain. We parked our car below Lucchio because of the narrow, winding roads, and hiked up to the village. It was in early may, the village was almost completely...More
