We visited the town of Sulmona in the region of Abruzzo in Augusta, 2018. It is a gorgeous little town - world famous for its ‘confetti’ (sugared almonds) which are traditionally used for weddings. Sulmona has the majestic Maiella as it’s backdrop. Worth the visit.

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...More
