Help with small Town


Could anyone give me info on where Valogna is located in Italy. I think its aroud Naples area -- very small town where my Father was born and would like to fnd in July. I've seen letters with the name Valogna on it. Would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Are you sure of the spelling? I didn't find a "Valogna" in www.google.com, and usually I can find any Italian municipal
ity at least once in Google, since there are sites listing all the zip codes. There's a Valonga in Spain. I know of a Vallelunga in Sicily. Try to get some more info from relatives or old papers. Do you know the region, e.g., Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Campania, Puglia, etc.?

Hello Audrey,

I've just done a search and it's close to Sessa. Looks like you'll need a good map of Campania...

Hello again Audrey,

Did you find it? The reference I found mentioned it as a 'frazione' of Sessa Aurunca, a small town near Formia, NW of Naples.

This means it's within the administrative district of Sessa, probably a small village within a 5-mile radius.

You can get to Sessa Aurunca by local train from Formia (- a 15 minute journey) or from Naples itself.

I hope this helps...

Steve

Steve, did you find this info on the internet or in a book? I occasionally look for info on obscure little towns in southern Italy, so I'd welcome a lead to a good source.

P.S. Have you traveled in Basilicata and Calabria? If so, may I ask you questions directly?

P.P.S. I was the "xxx" above who couldn't find Valogna.

If the town is Valogno, then to get there take the Capua exit on the Rome-Naples autostrada (A1), go west from the exit for about 12 miles past Francolise until you come to Cascano. At Cascano, go north for alittle over 2 miles until you get to Valogno. It is about 5 miles from Sessa Aurunca.

P.S. - The train station for Sessa Aurunca is not close to the town of Sessa Aurunca. It's closer to Cellole and is about 4 miles from Sessa Aurunca and about 7 miles from Valogno. Therefore, it will probably be hard to get to Valogno without a car. Maybe there's a bus that runs from the station but I'm not sure. Here a web address that you can copy into your address bar which shows the town centered on a map: "http://uk2.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?scale=150000&gwidth=700&gheight=400&client=M4&db=w3&X=1548750&Y=5017500&width=700&height=400&multimap.x=491&multimap.y=136" I hope that this is the town that you are looking for because I cannot find a town called Valogna, only Valogno. Good luck with your trip.
