Sulmona is...


... A piece of Italy’s jigsaw not to leave out, simple in appearance but fascinating to explore in its fine details, and all set in surroundings of outstanding natural beauty.

... Famous first of all for its delicious sugared almonds (“confetti”), as well as being close to the best known tourist spots in Central Italy and an ideal place for a holiday away from it all where the genuine tastes and flavours of the Abruzzo region abound and fascinating and ancient traditions are  reflected in the city’s art, sculpture, history and folklore.

... Genuinely steeped in its artistic heritage, tucked away as it is among the highest mountains of the Southern Italian Apennines and boasting a large number of historic monuments from pre-Roman, to Roman and Medieval and from throughout the following centuries.
