Timeless and Intimate
Jul 2019
On our way to Rome from Sulmona, we took a short detour to visit the archeological park at Alba Fucens, just north of Avezzano. It's free to visit and there is plenty to see in this largely ignored site. Besides the Roman site, there's a medieval site, an amphitheater, castle ruins, and a very interesting Basilica built over a temple dedicated to Apollo and built reusing its columns. Around 191 BC, the community became a municipium. Its location on the crossroads of Via Tiburtina Valeria, an ancient Roman road that linked Rome to the Adriatic Sea, and an important route between the regions of Etruria and Campania, meant that the town was a strategically important town to control. Fascinating to walk freely there, almost alone, and touch the ruins without guards or barriers.

History at its best!
May 2019
The ruins at Alba Fucens are a must see for anyone interested in Roman/Italian history. Unlike Pompeii or Herculaneum, they are not a well known tourist destination, so are not crowded. We were lucky enough to go with a guide provided by our hosts at the Villa d'Abruzzo in Torre de' Passeri who had an incredible amount of knowledge. There is a very well preserved amphitheatre, the remains of a village, plus the road leading to and from the village. Thanks to Luca, It was easy to imagine life there 2000 years ago

A large site spread over a hill. It has the remains of a very good amphitheatre & theatre dating from the first century AD. There are also remains of a market houses & a bath house. It is a lovely site with lots of wild flowers & butterflies to look at.

As previous reviewers have mentioned this place is practically left to yourself to enjoy, contemplate and reminisce. The amphitheatre is a slight walk away from the ruins, heading towards the ministry.

Very interesting
Jun 2017 • Friends
We were amazed how quiet this was, no tourists, just a place of quietness, peace and reflection. Archaeologists have worked amazingly hard to discover this area and it looks as though work is continuing. It looks as though the theatre is used for special music events, which would be worthwhile attending. There is a tourist information centre which is very informative- there are lots of pictures and a very good model of the ruins as to how in someone's opinion it looked like, this was very helpful.
