  • Val Fondillo I had the opportunity to visit it for the first time in October 2007 on the occasion of my 12/13/14 days training course in Ecorunning and Instructor of the "ERCI Nature Trail Val Fondillo", ecosportiva of 18 km of Trail that ran all through the Valley, event organized by ERCI Team Salviano my President Sergio Rozzi. Since we didn't get more repeating this magnificent event, aided by the total disinterest of local administrations for events that can boost the economy and tourism in the local area. An event attended by trailrunners from all over Italy and which I hope will return to organize early, hoping to be able to create within an adventure playground for young and old, returning them to convey the passion towards protecting the environment through sport and better place in Abruzzo does not exist for the beauty of the landscape and floristic biodiversity nourished. Come back soon in our Valley, we will be waiting for you with open arms! Alessio Brancaccio, Assistant Coach ERCI Association Team On Salviano Avezzano (AQ).

  • A healthy place and full of activities for young and old. If you want to make beautiful walks, from there several paths suitable for everyone. I also met some hungry foxes at this point to accept the food closely. If you can, take a stroll down to the cave of the fairies (the last part though is a bit steep but it can be done. The time to get there is on average 2 hours. Good walk

  • For "taste" most characteristic qualities of Abruzzo have to dedicate an entire day to this wonderful place, with altitude between 1084 and 1960 a.s.l., a valley near the narrow Caves initially Fondillo, then POPs fan forming an amphitheatre of glacial origin, flanked by Malik M Amaro (died 1862) and m. Doubt (died 1702), connected to each other by the great Serra delle Gravare (died 1960). It is rich in greenery, forests, natural beauty, beautiful glades. In addition to the five main springs, you encounter numerous smaller sources that, with their water good to drink, feed the Creek Fondillo. Trails, suitable for everyone, allow you to reach the most interesting points, both on the valley floor that at high altitude: the source "Tornareccia", "refuge of brigands", the "grotta delle fate", the "bear" step, the Monte Amaro. There are bars, picnic area, and possibility of horse riding, archery, bike rental.
