Included in the city's many attractions are the repertory theatre, Forte Spagnolo, which is home to the National Museum of Abruzzo, the churches of San Bernadino di Siena and Santa Maria di Callemaggio, and the nearby Roman ruins - all of which you can discover on a fascinating walking tour of L'Aquila's Old Town, which can be added to any of our L'Aquila packages.
