Senerchia

— 2 nights
Senerchia is an Italian municipality with 1370 registered voters, but only 1036 inhabitants, in the Province of Avellino, located in the upper valley of the Sele River in Campania. Venture out of the city with trips to Saint Michelès Abbey (in Monticchio Bagni), Rionero in Vulture (Cantine del Notaio & Monticchio lago piccolo) and Melfi Castle (in Melfi). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Oasi Valle della Caccia, admire the natural beauty at Villa d'Ayala-Valva, and explore the activities along Lago Laceno.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Senerchia trip planner.

Naples to Senerchia is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. Traveling from Naples in December, expect Senerchia to be a bit cooler, temps between 7°C and 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) so you can go by car back home.

Avellino is a town and comune, capital of the province of Avellino in the Campania region of southern Italy. It is situated in a plain surrounded by mountains 50km northeast of Naples and is an important hub on the road from Salerno to Benevento.HistoryBefore the Roman conquest, the ancient Abellinum was a centre of the Samnite Hirpini, located on the Civita hill some 4km outside the current town, in what is now Atripalda. The city could correspond to the ancient Velecha, documented by coins found in the area. Abellinum was conquered by the Romans in 293 BC, changing name several times in the following centuries (Veneria, Livia, Augusta, Alexandriana, and Abellinatium). However, the edification of a true Roman town occurred only after the conquest by Lucius Cornelius Sulla in 89 BC.The town was Christianized around 500 AD, becoming an episcopal seat. There followed the invasions of the Goths and Vandals. After the Lombard conquest of southern Italy, the ancient city was abandoned (it is disputed if completely or partly), and a new settlement grew on the Terra hill, corresponding to the modern Avellino. Defended by a castle, it became part of the Duchy (later Principality) of Benevento and, after the latter's fall, of the Principality of Salerno.
