“Sulmo mihi patria est – Sulmona is my homeland” (Ovid)
Just 2 hours from Rome you will find the beautiful ancient town of Sulmona, known worldwilde for being the homeland of Ovid, the epic Latin Poet of Love, who was born here in 43 b.c., and for being the world’s capital for the production of famous “confetti di Sulmona“, delicious sugar covered almonds which have become the symbol of the town.
Joining a private tour of Sulmona means to discover treasures dating back to Roman Times, Middle Age and Renaissance. Centuries of history condensed in a relatively small town center where it will be a pleasure to walk among colored confetti shops. It’s no surprise that Sulmona has been one of the most important towns of Abruzzo since the Roman Times and up to Renaissance.
The tour couldn’t be complete without a shopping tour in the local market where will taste some of the best local specialites, like the red garlic, porchetta and cheese.
Highlights: The stunning Piazza Garibaldi, one of the biggest squares in Italy, the main street Corso Ovidio and colorful confetti shops, Church Santa Maria della Tomba, Church Santissima Annunziata.
