No traffic jams, roads in good conditions, not too hot (sometimes a little rainy), beautiful landscapes and old villages…..we couldn’t have asked for more….starting from panoramic roads…..
….leading to villages too small to be signed on our map…..like Casoli, situated on a foothill of the Majella mountain, at the base of which runs the Aventino River………..
We found a cozy place for lunch, with a stunning view over the valley and a mix of Abruzzo and Sicily food…..
We had time for a little siesta under some cactuses…..
Or find yourself in the middle of Montorio al Vomano, between the XV century St. Anthony church….
and the more imposing VII century St. Rocco…..
spending some time just walking…..
One evening back to our hotel, we were surprised to meet some girls from another time….
who told us that night there was a medieval festival…..well, why not?
