65 – Mountain Trekking Near Itri

On the last day of their stay, Ben and Keith decided to do a spot of rambling, which in this neck of the woods might be more accutarely described as mountain trekking.  The town of Itri nestles in the Aurunci Mountains, an area of  outstanding natural beauty.

Ben and Keith set off from their drop off point, in the Valle D’Itri, and headed up the slopes towards Monte Orso, the summit of which is 1025 metres above sea level. Although at times a recognisable footpath was hard to find they made good progress and found an excellent spot to take some bird’s eye view photos of Itri.
