We visited on a very hot August day. The quaint narrow streets offered shelter from the heat and fabulous vistas. Worth the visit!

Only a half hour drive from sulmona, this is truly a special little town. There are some fantastic little bars and restaurants but the only thing is that you need to find them as there aren't many... other than that it's truly a special place.

This is a beautiful little village perched on the side of a mountain with amazing panoramic views from the top. The streets are steep and narrow, clean and quiet. The two room home where an old lady lived all her life until the 1970s is...More

We visited after the big snows of January 2017. Narrow streets hemmed in by snow piles and a beautiful church, the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Misericordia.

This is an out of the way Castle remnant and Tower only minutes from Sulmona. Well worth the drive and the 2€ price of admission. An hour and you will see great views of the valley and plateau.

We spent a lovely day walking the streets of this lovely little town, and toured the castle for 2 Euro. From the top of the castle you can see the entire Peligna valley, and marvel at the magnificent defensive planning of the people who built...More

A quaint town with a lot of history. A lovely stop over for lunch / dinner and a great walk to stretch the legs. You'll find family coat of arms on the buildings or an indication that the property is of a historical nature. Very...More
