ABRUZZO


Abruzzo is located in central Italy and stretches from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, on a mainly mountainous and wild land. In the mountains, tourist resorts and well-equipped facilities for skiing and winter sports rise among unpolluted peaks and rocky walls, like Pescasseroli, Rivisondoli and Roccaraso. The natural landscape with the high and steep peaks of the Gran Sasso, the Laga Mountains and Mount Majella, slopes down to a wide range of hills, until it finally reaches the Adriatic coast. The route that spans from the Gran Sasso down to the sea crosses territories that are rich in history, traditions and art, that never cease to surprise visitors. Narrow valleys and memorable natural paths thrust into the mountains and hills , just like the amazing and fascinating Aterno valley, filled with old boroughs. There are many natural reserves, like the National Parks of Abruzzo, the Park of Gran Sasso and the Laga Mountains, or that of Mount Majella, which ensure protection to the typical vege and animal species of the area, like the golden eagle, the wolf and the Marsican brown bear. The Adriatic coast is characterized by long and sandy beaches to the north and pebbly beaches to the south. Also, the small villages of the hinterland, as well as the monasteries and castles of the region, are very charming and are part of many routes for tourists in the greenest region in Italy. The provinces of the region are: L'Aquila (regional capital), Pescara, Teramo and Chieti.
