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.
