Sulmona

Sulmona (Latin: Sulmo; Greek: Σουλμῶν, Soulmōn) is a city and comune of the province of L'Aquila in Abruzzo, Italy, with 24,854 inhabitants. It is in Valle Peligna, a plateau once occupied by a lake that disappeared in prehistoric times. In the ancient era, it was one of the most important cities of the Paeligni and is known for being the native town of Ovid, of whom there is a bronze statue in the square known as Piazza XX Settembre located on the town's main road also under his name.




 In Confetti shop:
To buy the sugared almond flowers of Sulmona as a souvenir is too strong a temptation for tourists visiting the city to resist!












Back to the Bus: All on board!
