The small and picturesque village of Isola San Biagio is one of the many villages along the “Great Ring of the Sibillini” which is composed of nine stages starting from Visso and continues in a clockwise direction. Of course the ring can be travelled in the opposite direction or be started anywhere along the way. Each stage can be explored in a day or two. The Great Ring of the Sibillini is a hiking trail of about 120 km that covers the entire mountain range. In addition to the variety of landscapes and natural beauty it provides evidence of the priceless culture that the historical park preserves.
