Sulmona and the Abruzzo region is gorgeous. Definitely an area that must be visited. We had been told that it would be our favorite area we saw on our trip of southern and central Italy and that was not a lie. The village has such...More

The historic centre of Sulmona is small, and easily seen in a few hours. However, nearly all on the main street, there are many churches worth seeing (and they are open!), the Napoli gate and the medieval hospital with a great façade. Furthermore, there is...More

Nice city 60 km near Pescara, souvenir shops everywhere, arhitecture, but no restaurant to eat. Only a pizzeria without tables, closed at lunch time. So, take with you somethig to eat in your bag!

Famous for being the birthplace of Ovid, the roman poet. Sulmona is also famous for its confetti, or sugar coated almonds, and its historical city center with some historic buildings including, churches, palaces and fountains.

The aquaduct is amazing and has surprisingly delicious water but the central square fountain could use more upkeep.

We were here for 5 days walking and exploring Majella National Park. Sulmona has a lovely if slightly run down centro storico worth a morning or afternoon to explore. The bars and restaurants are fine if a little lacking in sophistication and genuine choice.

My mom is from Sulmona and many of my relatives still live there. My favorite regions are Tuscany and Veneto, but Sulmona is a very charming and friendly ancient town. In fact, I recently lead a trip with colleagues to Italy, where I drove them...More
