"Palena" Palena by satara

When you think about Italy as about tourism destination, only some names of places come into the mind, no? Like Rome, Tuscany, Sicily etc. But there are so many specific details in Italian culture that you can find only in some not "discovered" (especially on Virtualtourist) places..
Palena is one of these "unknown" places. A little town in the region of Mountain Maiella (the administrative region of Abruzzo) with great mountain view, fresh air, narrow streets, houses made of stone, senior citizens that sit in the shadow on the street and talk about every stranger who passes by (which doesn't happen often)...
We had a very lovely walk there for about an hour on our way to Maiella.
Would recommend for you to do the same!:)
We took the road from Termoli (where I lived at that moment) to North, after passing Vasto, after some kilometers we took the exit for Casoli and followed the indications on the road. Had also a detailed map of roads so it was not a problem to find the location..
I feel that my English after 3 months of speaking solo Italiano became a bit lousy... So please forgive me if you find some stupid language mistake in the tips I wrote.. And avvertitemi! I mean, tell me about them...:))
- Pros:Little mountain town with fresh air and great looks
They speak strange Italian... Bearing in mind that for me all dialects of Italian are strange because I don't understand... more travel advice
Have you ever noticed, that everything what is old looks nice in Italy? I don't think that formula would work in... more travel advice
