Abruzzo: the land of the Samnites 

Few people know that these territories, before the Roman Empire, were inhabited by the Italic people: the Samnites, the Marsi, the Peligni, the Piceni…. the valiant twelve people of the central Apennines who at the time built their dream of freedom against Roman hegemony. We will ride through these lands steeped in history and ancient bloodshed in numerous battles. We will be based in Alfedena, an ancient Samnite center, where we will be able to admire the remains of the medieval castle of Prince Caracciolo of Cellammare, the walls, and the Norman tower with an octagonal plan dating back to the 10th century.
