November 2016 – Irpinia, Unique Christmas Events

Irpinia: Ancient Meets Modern in Southern Italy
Many Italian-Americans can trace their heritage back to this mountainous region east of Naples and highlighted by the city of Avellino and what a treasure this area is: abbeys, castles, sanctuaries, vineyards and medieval towns. Less than an hour from the Amalfi Coast but worlds away. Visit before it becomes Italy’s next tourism hot spot!
