Welcome to Summonte, a treasure trove of beauties nestled among the rolling hills of Partenio.
I am extremely honored to have been called, as mayor, to lead this extraordinary town, which is part of the prestigious network of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
In the wake of the tradition of these places, the experience in Summonte will be, for anyone who decides to visit it, always in the name of hospitality and inclusion in a place that has something magical, between unspoiled nature, historical riches and fascinating testimonies .
The breathtaking views, the authentic tranquility that reigns in the alleys of the historic center, the majesty of the Angioina Tower are pluses that few other places can boast and which help, away from the hustle and bustle of the daily life of the big cities, to rediscover that serenity which we all long for.
But Summonte is not only history and nature. It is so much more, as those who have ensured that our town entered the exclusive list of the most beautiful villages in Italy have had the opportunity to verify and certify.
Summonte is community, it is slowness declined in its best sense, it is sustainable tourism, it is attention to detail, it is the culture of good food.
All pieces of a single design that make this strip of land, which climbs up the slopes of the Partenio from the nearby capital city of Avellino, a treasure chest with many windows to open to admire its grandeur.
From here, from the heart of Campania felix (the extraordinary tourist attractions of Naples, Sorrento, Pompeii, Capri, Caserta, Benevento, Salerno and Cilento are really a stone’s throw from Summonte) comes the invitation to rediscover the value of an inclusive stay together.
We will be happy to welcome you and to share our history, our unspoilt nature and our culture with you.
We are waiting for you to make you live an unforgettable and authentic experience in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Il Sindaco Dr. Ivo Capone
