Avella

4.1
Avella is a city and comune in the province of Avellino, in the Campania region of Italy.EtymologyCould be related to the Indo-European root *h₂ebōl, *h₂ebl (apple), meaning "place where apple-orchards originated" (read below).HistoryThe ancient Abella was a medium importance center of the Samnites, and then the Romans, about 10km northeast of Nola. It had a rather large amphitheater, similar to that of Pompeii.According to Justin, it was a Greek city of Chalcidic origin, which would lead us to suppose that it was a colony of Cumae: but at a later period it had certainly become an Oscan town, as well as the neighboring city of Nola. It must have been at one time a place of importance. Strabo and Pliny both notice it among the inland towns of Campania; and though we learn from the Liber de Coloniis, that Vespasian settled a number of his freedmen and dependants there, yet it appears, both from that treatise and from Pliny, that it had not then attained the rank of a colony, a dignity which we find it enjoying in the time of Trajan. It probably became such in the reign of that emperor.
Avella is in Province of Avellino. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Avella trip itinerary using our Italy trip planner.
