  • I must confess that the search for the road to this place has been very tiring. Unfortunately some renovation of the road surface make it impractical. However you can access to the Gorges through the Hermitage situated at 1 km from the town. The place is of great beauty and spirituality, combining the beauty of nature with the silence of the place. The invitation to meditation is very strong, you can let carry by trails that line the gorges or simply sit in contemplation on u big rock. There is a small picnic area with a small kiosk to buy sodas. Advice for visiting a comfortable clothing and sneakers better though.

  • The Hermitage has lost much of its old world charm which is still the dominant feature of other monasteries of the Maiella. Modern floor. Frescoes by mid century and horrible touches to stone walls with reinforced concrete. Huge flaw in the visitor center. Basically I couldn't talk to anyone despite having made repeated attempts over several days. I got confirmation you can visit the reserve only just before you hit the road, and as a result of an email of protest. The natural part instead deserves a visit. I recommend contacting, if you can, private operators and associations that promote guided tours in reserve. You can discover unexpected beauty. Uninspiring finally receiving in catering. Inhospitable to lunch is actually pretentious in costs compared with a service not just excellent. In short, they must learn to do better tourism. Don't miss the beauty of nearby Corfe and in particular the Museum and archaeological area. Just beautiful.

  • I visited the Gorges of San Venanzio, after seeing the Hermitage, and I thought they were spectacular. Intertwine in a number of locations that are not excessively long but difficult and worth to go. Totally immersed in nature there is a path leading to the river that runs through the Gorge where you can bathe in clean water and frost. The visit is recommended for those who follow trails of medium difficulty and in summer is a must bring a bathing suit.
