Where to run in Prata d'Ansidonia (Italy)

By Franco Schiazza - Start from Piazza della Memoria in Prata D'Ansidonia, in the province of L'Aquila, and go towards Castelnuovo. You will find the first houses and then you will run on the outskirts of the town on a small paved road (under the red zone). You will reach a dirt road - pebbles and grass - leading to the Regio Tratturo Borbonico trail, crossing through Peltuinum. The city of Peltuinum was founded between the I century bC and the I century aD in the territory inhabited by the Italic tribe of the Vestini. From here we run downhill along a trail and we get back on the paved road that brings us back to Piazza della Memoria in Prata d'Ansidonia, after about eight kilometers. A shorter course of four kilometers consists in reaching Peltuinum by following the very panoramic paved road, stopping at the archeological site and theater before heading back to Prata d'Ansidonia. If you are there visiting the area, do not miss the Camponeschi castle, the villages of Tussio and San Nicandro, the church of San Paolo a Peltuinum (very beautiful but unfortunately no longer accessible after the earthquake). You should also visit San Pio delle Camere and Prata d'Ansidonia itself.
