Day 1 Immersion
You come to Torre dell’Angelo, where you immediately immerse yourself in the atmosphere of rural life. You can use this day to ‘switch gears’ to resting, start enjoying the beauty of the surrounding nature and tune in to your journey.
Day 2 The Knightly Joust
After breakfast, we are going to visit the city of Sulmona which is located on a stretch of land that used to be a prehistoric lake. We will walk around the city, see some of the most important Abruzzese historic sites and visit a confetti fabric. After that we are going to walk to the skete of a medieval hermit who, for 4 months of his life, became one of the most unusual popes in the history of the Vatican. We will have lunch there in a picnic style.
After that we will return to Sulmona to become spectators in a unique event – the Knightly Joust of Europe, where each city is represented by a delegation of figures in historical costumes that all come from different schools, such as ancient dance, weapons, arquebusiers, musicians, falconers, flag-wavers, actors, singers, charges of lansquenets, crossbows etc.
