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 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
