Thanks to a Reader, The Ascent of Mt. Sibilla among the best Italian mountain activities by Guardian.co.uk | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

From hiking in the splendour of the Italian Alps and Dolomites, to trekking along the Apennines, and enjoying some fine food along the way, readers reveal their favourite activities in Italy's mountain areas...

Ascent of Monte Sibilla (2,173m)
This seven-mile circuit offers amazing views over the hills of Le Marche to the Adriatic, north to the Gran Sasso and of the Sibillini mountains. Drive up the zigzag track to Rifugio Sibilla and then it is a short walk to the fine ridge that leads to the summit. The area is full of legends. The eponymous Sibyl prophetess reputedly lived in a cave nearby the summit with a group of beautiful enchantresses who could turn into snakes if the need arose. Lago di Pilato, nearby, supposedly marks Pontius Pilate's final resting place. We had the mountain to ourselves in April, when fresh snow added to the beauty.
