- Probably the town´s main attraction, it is a part roman part medieval fountain, considered to be one of the most beautiful in Italy. It was located in another part of town and move to its present location after the wwii bombings.Written January 17, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Built in the 19th century in a Neoclassical style over a previous 13th century Cathedral that had been destroyed by an earthquake, and standing on top of a 3rd century B.C. temple. The only medieval feature remaining is the 13th century bell tower, under which passes the main street and sided by 4 roman statues.Written January 17, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Isernia is a lovely and welcoming town. We enjoyed exploring it's streets and shops and businesses in the old section of town. This picturesque town square is a great place to take pictures or enjoy a coffee or drink. Be sure to notice the stone work that marks where the original buildings stood before the intense bombings that the town endured during WW II.Written December 8, 2016
- Right next to the Fontana Fraterna is the small museum dedicated to the bombing of Isernia in 1943, with models, objects and several pictures. Inside we found a nice lady who was actually from the U.S. but whose parents were from Isernia, so after many years she had decided to come back and volunteer for the museum.Written January 17, 2019
- While walking to a restaurant, we went under the arch and saw these statues..One had no head and another was held together with wire.. Interesting if you are near to read about, but you don't have to seek it out.Written August 19, 2016
- This small but interesting museum of Bobbin Lace and several generations of it, it fascinating.
Bobbin Lace is an art of making lace using bobbins made from wooden sticks in different sizes and shapes.
Bobbin Lace is known mostly for antique doilies, table cloths, table runners and fine borders on linen.
I have seen it done in Brazil now Italy. It is a taught art in Europe handed down form generation to generation. Some families have their own patterns for their lace.
Barbara who we hire as our guide for 2 fantastic days and her family own this little gem. Contact Barbara who is a tour guide with many hats. She is a plethora of knowledge for the entire area.
Even my husband found this piece of artistic history informative.

- This simple church, next to the City Hall of Isernia, would hardly be noticed. A simple medieval façade, but once you enter you are delighted.
It was built in the 13th century, a convent was built next to the church to house priests.
The church is quite large, has 3 alters, one of St. Anthony.
Its void of any color, using mostly whites, an ethereal beauty.
Worth visiting.Written September 16, 2017
- Located just outside the city walls, a short walk from the historic centre, set in a woodland setting, is this beautiful church of Saint Cosmo and Damian.
Twin brothers born in the 3rd century, physicians who performed many healing miracles.
The setting is tranquil, the church is beautiful, the life of the saints is depicted on the frescos inside the church.
A fab place to discover.Written September 16, 2017
