Mountains

SULMONA – ROCCARASO –PALMOLI  – 25 October

Finally a lovely sunny day for the drive to Roccaraso, a popular ski 031resort about 40km or so south of Sulmona.  The small resort was very busy with Italians having a nice Sunday outing up in the mountains and all the restaurants were packed with diners. The ski area was 035not very large and there were only four chairlifts to be seen, neither was the mountain very high at all.

From Roccaraso we climbed higher into the mountains in order to pass out of Abruzzo into Molise region. Italian roads in the mountains are033
032amazing and in superb condition. We would have passed through at least 25 mountain tunnels in order to reach Palmoli, some tunnels being several kilometres long and all very well lit and modern.
