Sulmona is the most beautiful place surrounded by gorgeous mountain views. The mornings are misty and cooler breezes blow early even in September when we visited. I would love to come back when the skiing season is in full swing just to see the breathtaking views.

Take your time, you will be rewarded and surprised. This corner of Italy is simply stunning. It is unique, rugged, and diverse. Mountains, lakes, authentic towns and people. Wonderful produce.

The only thing I can say, Sulmona is extremely lucky to overlook such a mountain! Exploring both of them will definitely give you an experience.

Maiella Mountain is fantastic! You can see Maiella around Sulmona like a beautiful paint in its blue and green colours. In autumn you can see the yellow leaves on the ground and in front of you Maiella is shinning like gold...Amazing!

We visited the Parco Nazionale della Maiella from Chieti by car. It’s a 26 km drive which is steep and the road is awful in certain stretches (in particular from the Passo di Lanciano). After overcoming these minor nuisances you park your car at 2000 m. and you enter an area without any traces of humans for many miles around.... More
