Main Attractions: the spectacular itinerary follows between walls over 300 ft high. There is an enchanting spot called Fonte degli Innamorati (Lovers' Fountain) with a small waterfall. Other interesting spots are the top of Monte Serra di Celano (1923 m.) and the Italic military structures on Monte Secino. Fascinating is also the plateau of Piana di San Vittorino (1324 mt a.s.l.), which is reached through a path carved in the rock. In winter the itinerary is closed, since the valley bottom becomes a wild stream while in summer it is very hot, due to the low altitude in the vicinity of Celano.
