A heart among the mountains

This small lake has the shape of a heart, it's waters are cold but very clean. There is a path that goes almost along all its circumference so it is possible to have a nice walk admiring the color of the wate. There are a few small beaches where it is pos

Amazing experience for children

This a nice small place not far from lake Scanno. Local deers are kept and grown here, in order to protect them. They are not caught from the wilderness, but rather brought from specialized farms. The host is very friendly and explains in Italian about th

A ghost town

Well worth a visit to this crumbling town that has been deserted for over 100 years. The drive to the town is pretty hair raising with an un-tarmacked road and steep inclines and bends. The views are spectacular but keep your eyes on the road! It is a pre

Interesting Chapel but I wouldn't make a special trip

If you are in the area, it's definitely worth seeing. The chapel is small, conducive for private prayer if you are alone. It is built across the roadway so be prepared to climb a few steps to get to the top.The most interesting thing is that the altar is

Non solo una statua

Bella, per la figura aggraziata, ma soprattutti per quello che rappresenta: la donna e il suo costume tipico. È un bene tener vita alle tradizioni e rendere omaggio alla donna. Grazie.
