Events, food, experiences for an unforgettable trip to Italy

Abruzzo – Territory

Abruzzo - google mapAbruzzo is known for Gran Sasso (the highest peak of the entire Appennines, almost 3.000 mt, including Calderone Glacier, the second southernmost in Europe) and for gold sand Adriatic beaches.
Abruzzo is the Italian region with the largest number of parks and protected areas. That’s why it is also known as “the green lung of Italy“.
In Abruzzo National Park, Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, Maiella National Park and Sirente Velino Regional Park it is possible to meet rare animals and plants. Many activities may be performed in these Parks as well: horse riding, canopy tours through the trees, canoeing, biking and birdwatching.
Lakes offer lots of activities too: you may row on Bomba Lake, or you may take a swim in Scanno Lake and Campotosto Lake.
Along the coast of Adriatic sea, Pescara and other places received the “Blu Flag” recognition that awards clean beaches and clear sea water.

A 130 km cycle path goes along the entire riviera, crossing each village.
There are a lot of religious routes leading to evocative places of worship, like the famous Hermitages of Celestino V, located between the wild rocks of Maiella and Morrone, and like lots of romanesque abbeys.
