Announcing our New Website about Atina
Atina is a place very dear to my heart.
My maternal Italian grandparents originated from this sweet little town.
Our first holiday in Atina was 25 years ago. I still have cousins who live in Atina and they kindly invited us to come and stay with them for a fortnight. They wined and dined us. Mara is a wonderful cook. Mario took us out and about in his car to see some of the local towns in the Val di Comino. All in all they thoroughly spoiled us. We fell a close connection with Atina and the scenic Val di Comino.
We often visit Atina, Montecassino and surrounding area, and are getting to know the area well.
Last weekend we explored the village of Caira, The German War Cemetery at Cassino, the nearby village of Caira, Picinisco and Gallinaro.
One of our hobbies is Family History. Last year we had 3 sets of guests here with us at “Tre Cancelle” who were tracing their family roots in the Atina / Ciociaria area. We did our very best to help them and took them all on a tour of the area.
If perhaps you share my enthusiasm for Atina or have family that were born there we would love to hear from you. We have also started a Group on Facebook called We Love Atina.
Perhaps you might like to join and meet other people that share Atina connections.
