The 9 Most Hands-Down, Drop-Dead Gorgeous Photogenic Places In Italy

CASTELLUCCIO

Home to just 150 year-round residents, this hilltop town (known for harvesting lentils) is one of the highest villages in the glorious Apennine Mountains… as well as one of the tiniest. The town center, with its pedestrian-only stairs and alleyways, is textbook charming, sure — but the real draw is the view come the summertime months. Castelluccio abuts Monti Sibillini National Park, and from May through August, the town rises like a phoenix from a dreamy sea of poppies, daffodils, violets, wildflowers and grazing sheep and cows.
