Looking out above the Gran Sasso Mountains, Fortezza Museo delle Armi Civitella del Tronto is a marvel of military engineering dating back to the 12th century. It's since been renovated, but still retains its Renaissance style. The elliptical fort contains two squares, one used for the training of troops and the other for ceremonial purposes. To get here, walk up the steep Ruetta, known as the narrowest street in Italy and originally meant to keep enemies from gaining access to the fortress.

  • A fortress which is well worth a visit. Impressive, and well structured. For a physical need at least 1 hour. Responsible for the site and the Museum of arms. Also of interest is the cistern and the dungeons.

  • Must-visit place if you are in the area. Really impressive. The Museum is well cared for, perhaps the Kingdom of the two Sicilies a bit mistreated, but we know that history says whoever wins the war.
