Agnone, 43km northeast of Isernia by road, is an ancient hilltop town famous for its bell making. For more than 1000 years, local artisans have been producing church bells for some of Italy's most famous churches, including St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Learn all about bell-making at this museum (there are extra tours in August). For further information and details of accommodation in the area, ask at the helpful tourist office.
