Beautiful and undiscovered. Majestic and peaceful. Welcome to Abruzzo…
Surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery, Abruzzo's landscape is surprisingly varied, with a sandy coastline and ancient forests in the National Parks.

Abruzzo is also rich in folklore and tradition, which you can explore in its quirky villages.
Explore the medieval buildings which make up the towns in Abruzzo, visit isolated castles which sit on the hillsides, or take a swim in warm, azure waters, whilst gazing up at snow-capped mountains. Abruzzo has so much to offer.
Abruzzese hospitality is famously sincere, and the food and wine are known to be some of the best in Italy - we’ll let you decide.
