Santo Stefano di Sessanio is a village with a preserved medieval character in L'Áquila Province in Abruzzo.

Get in[edit]

Bus from L'Aquila.

Get around[edit]

The only way to see the village is on foot. It's small enough to give no problem to most people but is not easy for wheel-chair users as there are a number of steps and some very narrow roads.


  • It is the village as a whole rather than any particular sight that is appealing, although you would not want to miss the watchtower and the remarkably narrow street past it.
  • There is a small lake just outside the walls.




  • Hotel Restaurant del Cavaliere, Via della Giudea, This is just outside the wall; their lentil soup is particularly good.



  • The Residenza la Torre is not a single place but consists of a number of restored apartments, the restoration tastefully planned by an architect owner. The owner or a family member will let you into your apartment and leave you some food for breakfast, book you a meal at the local restaurant if you wish and then leave you until the morning.
