Abruzzo, which encloses the major peaks of the Apennines, the rugged massif of the Gran Sasso and the historic Abruzzo National Park, is bathed in the crystalline waters of the Adriatic Sea and is a land to be discovered, rich in treasures, magical landscapes and small cities of art, such as L’Aquila and Sulmona.
The Abruzzo coast is characterized to the north by long and sandy beaches, while to the south there are hundreds of coves of pebbles, before reaching the wide gulf of Vasto. The small inland villages are rich in charm, as well as the many castles and monasteries that dominate the valleys.
L’Aquila, which stands on the slopes of the Gran Sasso, is characterized by an inestimable artistic heritage, while Pescara, with its long sandy beaches, preserves the memory of Gabriele D’Annunzio.
