A land with a thousand facets, a mix of nature, history and culture that will surprise you everywhere you stop.
Let yourself be lulled by the gentle sound of the wind that whispers through the trees during long walks that pass through charming mediaeval towns – Calitri, Monteverde, Savignano Irpino, Nusco and Zungoli, among the most beautiful in Italy. Find ascetism and spirituality in the splendid Abbey of Goleto and in the mystical convents hidden in the forest, and explore the timeless fascination of the Mephitis volcanic site at Rocca San Felice, the small sulphur lake of which Vergil sang in the Aeneid.
At Avellino, you can wander the narrow streets that lead you to the Clock Tower (Torre dell’Orologio), to the Cathedral, and finally to the Irpino Museum, with the remains of the Lombard castle (Castello Longobardo). You can take a few moments to admire a unique artistic and cultural heritage, surrounded by a spectacular natural environment that includes the WWF ‘Oasis’ at Conza della Campania. Moving from one town to another, you’ll have the chance to taste the premium wines and the superb food that make this region remarkable: its cheeses, chestnuts and black truffles are not to be missed. This is a destination with a great religious tradition, typical of all southern Italy, and a huge range of events that include both the sacred and the profane, in which thousands of the faithful and the curious participate every year.
It is a place just waiting to be discovered, where you will feel completely at home, welcomed by warm, generous people, a unique journey between the past and the present that you will not want to miss.
