Agnone Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 16 photos

Agnone, my closest Italian roots

Agnone is the town where the parents of my father were born, then they emigrated and settled in Buenos Aires , Argentina, where I was born and I have lived all my life. I have deep feelings about Agnone, I consider myself like an "Agnonese". (I've Italian citizenship).
I visited the city twice. Some relatives still live there, in a house 3 kilometers from the town. I have also visited the house where my grandparents lived there!! Amazing experience!
This town is called "The Athens of Sannio", culturally is very attractive. The theater's name is "Italo Argentino" !!
There're 14 churches!. People is friendly and the landscape is pretty. Food is great!
Visit it and then tell me!
