Disorganized staff, we were separated into groups for the many reservations acceptedI so I could partially see the show 'wild' even though I paid the full ticket, for what I have seen the show 'wild' is beautiful

If you like old forts and old cities, you should definitely visit Civitella del Tronto. The old city is charming and the fortress full of history. We really enjoyed it

However there's very little information provided, especially in English, so you have to sort of guess for yourself exactly what rooms were used for. I believe it's one of the largest fortresses in Europe, so if that's an... More

We came around a corner travelling from Acoli Piceno to Sulmona and saw this amazing village on the hill and at the very top a well preserved fort. The entrance to the fort is hiddent away in one of the buildings near the entrance to the main square. There is a long climb up to the ticket office for the... More
