This is a beautiful place that could really use more tourism to boost the local economy.

Wander around, join the lively passegiata, sit on the steps and eat gelati or have a drink in one of the friendly bars.

Mount Majella creates a spectacular backdrop and is the best show in town as the sun sets.

Intriguing light installations quote the Roman poet Ovid who was born here and wrote “the Art of Love.”

Hire an e-bike from Ciclabile and ride the Ciclovidia cycle way.

I loved this town. It was just big enough to keep us busy for a couple of days yet big enough to walk everywhere. The people were friendly and it's a very safe place.

Great place to visit with only the popular bar Jamm’mo near the central piazza and Norman aqueduct, a disappointment. A popular tourist beverage, cafè Americano, is not listed on the menu but costs a lot more than a Cappuccino. Stick to the items listed on the menu and enjoy this beautiful city.

Sulmona surprised us with its multiple charming piazzas, fascinating museum (located next to the tourism office), and good beer (check out the IPA at the bar across from the tourism office). We ran out of time to do everything we wanted, hope to return someday.

This is a small town with an ancient history. The town is proud of being the birthplace of Ovid, but there's plenty more to see, including a busy, colourful marketplace opened twice a week (we were lucky to be there on a Wednesday when it was open). You will see plenty of vendors of the famous sugar almond bunches called confetti - well worth photographing; buy them if you have a sweet tooth (I didn't even though I have a very sweet tooth).
We were there on a wet March day and there were quite a few other tourists. It's probably swamped in high season - be aware.
The surrounding countryside is lovely.

A curious mix of buildings with lots of open space, reminiscent of Siena or Bologna. A fun place for a 'passegiata'.
Currently the town has a compulsory mask policy, which is uncomfortable but there you go.

It is safe, friendly and welcoming!! Great shops, places to eat. Mercato (or Market day) is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings - must do. If you have limited time go on one of these two mornings.

This is an easy going Italian town, lots to see, good food, friendly locals, restful B&B's and not crowed. It's a place where you can get the true feel of a Italian town full of history. Great day trips to county towns nearby. Best to stay a few days and enjoy!

Sulmona and the Abruzzo region is gorgeous. Definitely an area that must be visited. We had been told that it would be our favorite area we saw on our trip of southern and central Italy and that was not a lie. The village has such charm and truly gives you an authentic experience of Italy outside of the hustle and bustle of tourist places like atoms, Amalfi, Tuscany etc. You can see mountains from wherever you stand and the old charm and character is everywhere. Like other Italian cities it has lots of old architecture but it differs in that it’s all unique whereas in Siena for example you tend to see the same color and style building Sulmona has eclectic beauty in the differences of buildings and churches. The food and wine was delicious and the surrounding region offers national parks for hiking and other wonderful historic castles and such for touring. I recommend at least 2-3 days here.

The historic centre of Sulmona is small, and easily seen in a few hours. However, nearly all on the main street, there are many churches worth seeing (and they are open!), the Napoli gate and the medieval hospital with a great façade. Furthermore, there is the medieval aquaduct, great views of the mountains from the piazza Garibaldi, and a portal of a church that was mostly destroyed. The archaeological museum and the room with local costumes are in the medieval hospital. In the Chiara monastery there is a modern art museum and one of religious art (both are on the same entry ticket). Finally, there is a cathedral with its early medieval crypt.
