Bominaco Bominaco is a village only about 30km from L' Aquila and connected with it by bus. There is a castle on the hill which must give a slendid view of the mountains across the main road to Sulmona. However, its most exciting feature consists of its two churches, close together. The 13th century frescoes in the church of San Pellegrino are a national treasure and Santa Maria is a beautiful plain building with three apses dating from the early 11th century....


Sulmona This is further east than L'Aquila and hence is a better location for exploring the National Park area. It was the birth place of the Roman poet, Ovid and has a statue of him in a prominent position. Curiously the nose is nothing remarkable although his agnomen was 'Naso' or Bignose. However the city as a whole conjures up more medieval images than Roman ones. The Piazza Garibaldi is very appealing with an aqueduct snaking around two sides, whilst the cathedral and other churches build on the atmosphere....

Grosseto [Upload image] The main attraction in Grosetto is Castiglione della Pescaia, a very attractive town. A few hundred houses with a few thousand inhabitants, a romantic corner of the old Maremma between the azure sea and the evergreen hills, with rocks going down to the sea and beaches bordered by thick brush and extensive pine woods, a Fishing harbour dominated by an embattled, medieval castle: this is Castigtione della Pescaia. In addition to its delightful beach, its sea and pine woods, Castiglione della Pescaia can also offer the fascination of the imposing remains of its important past. Grosseto is the agricultural capital of the Maremma and is known for its Agriturismo which basically means agricultural touri...


Diamante This historical fishermen's village is situated on a rock, safe from flooding, and - in ancient times - from pirates, too. Today, tourists capture the town instead - thousands of them in the summer, many from northern Italy, but also from other parts of Europe. By early September, most of them are gone - except for the chileheads, that is. They're here for their event of the year, the Festival del Peperoncino ....


Viareggio Viereggio has a great sand beach dotted with private bathing areas that you can buy a day pass for. It also has a kind of boardwalk that covers the length of the beach and has all the designer stores. The area along the coast called the Versillia is a perfect vacation spot for people who enjoy the beach in addition to seeing wonderful nearby attractions. Viereggio, is the largest town in this area and is an old seaside resort and boating center with hotels that have perhaps seen more elegant days but are still wonderful. There is a great deal going on in this area such as the Carnivale in Viereggio and other local celebrations and too many side trips of great interest to mention. It is also only an hour away...

The Cittadella is the oldest part of Gioia Tauro where you can find St. Antonios Church and severa...


Umbria Umbria, describing itself as 'the Green Heart of Italy' was overshadowed for centuries by the glories of Tuscany. Other than Assisi, which has always had many visitors for obvious reasons, and the magnificent cathedral faade of Orvieto, it was much less known. It still tends to be regarded as a place for a break if the glories of Tuscany have become too much. This marks what now seems an absurd underrating. Umbria is worth more than one visit in its own right and places like Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto and Foligno have taken their place. Yet many might prefer the 'lesser' places such as Spello, Todi and Trevi, not just as a break from the crowds but as some really fine hill-top villages. ...
