Italy - Pietramelara (Caserta) & Sant' Apollinare (Frosinone)

Can anyone tell me about these two areas - Pietramelara and Sant' Apollinare? We are traveling to Italy in the Fall and one of our traveling companions has roots in each of these areas. We are having difficulty finding info on both. Thanks.

Did you see this website (you need to scroll down for information about Pietramelara)

Frosinone is a geographically a fairly small province, and it one of the areas of Italy with the oldest human settlements and rich with history from the Roman empire. Today, it is still fairly densely populated.

If you have the patience, it can be interesting to use the Italy World Club site for the province of Fronsinone and click on each of the links for towns. Some links reveal very little in terms of description, but others indicate really fascinating little towns.

I live in Italy and thus have the opportunity to visit many tiny towns that never appear in tourist guides, and it is shocking how lovely, charming, friendly and rich in history they so often are. I hope you will alot plenty of time to visit these off-the-beaten track towns, even though they are not hard to get to with a car. Most people who take the time to visit small-town Italy discover something marvelous, and it turns out to be the high point of their stay.
