As part of the Sponz festival taking place in Calitri and surrounding area this week, we went back in time to experience a historic train journey.
I have to be totally honest here and say that as I don’t speak Italian I don’t really know the whole story behind the train but surfing to say the carriages are from the 1920s, 30s and 50s and the Diesel engine that pulled them was from the 1960s.
The train line was closed in 2010 and has recently been renovated and so this was to celebrate the reopening of the historic line.
Here we are waiting for the train to arrive in Calitri…
The train arrives!
We journey through stunning, lush green scenery….
We arrive in Rocchetta San Antonio!
I will find out more about the history of the train!
