Scanno is a shepperd small city. Here you can visit a little museum and a lot of traditional little shops. I liked it very much. Also near is the Scanno lake witch you should also visit and take a hike through the woods

Scanno has seen a lot time within its walls. There are structures dating back to 500. It seems that Italy has many of these types of ancient towns that seem to survive despite modernity. One can feel the history in these living museums.

As others have indicated on Tripadvisor this hilltop village is well worth a visit. The higher you go (near the chairlifts) you can see the architecture change and appear more Swiss like. We enjoyed our visit.
