This old town is hilly with windy narrow cobble stoned paths. No need for a map. Just wander as it is not big. Down below there is a.churcb and cemetery. Uo the top was a tower but the earthquake in 2009 destroyed it but they are repairing it. There's many buildings being repaired. But what we saw that were still... More

What can I say, I love Santo Stefano di Sessanio. This is where my father was born. It is a quaint, small, quiet village in the Gran Sasso. It has the feel of home. It is the essence of Italy. It is breathtaking.

My family prefer Gran Sasso in winter, spring, summer or fall. Different season...different beauty! Santo Stefano di Sessanio is always our base. We love the quietness and tranquility of the place. It's a nice place to stay if you Like to visit Gran Sasso, Calascio, & Santo Stefano itself. Don't forget to buy Lentils of Santo Stefano to bring home.... More

Alas, the 2009 earthquake centred in L'Aquila in Abruzzo caused the destruction of the historic tower that crowns this high village. Nevertheless the village is worth a visit for two reasons. One is to walk the village,which is compact and ancient. The other is to enjoy a meal in the local restaurant, where the regional speciality of brown lentil soup... More

The village has been seriously damaged by the earthquake. It is still in reconstruction. The whole site is in work.

We stayed in San Stefano three nights in April. Didn't know what to excpect but really loved the place. The village is beautiful and calm and everyone you meet is real nice. It's small so there is not a lot of places to look at. You rather just enjoy this lonsome little place and have your ice cream in the... More

Visited here lots over the years and it never ceases to be a lovely day out. Great little bar, artisan shops and stunning views. The tower hasn't been repaired yet since the earthquake but it's still a great wee day out
