Best things to do and places to visit for Abruzzo

Sea and mountains, as well as villages and museums; one cannot get bored in Abruzzo. The region still looks authentic; it is a rich, untouched landscape outside the major tourist areas, full of history and folklore.

The region stretches along the Appennini mountain range all the way the Adriatic Sea. The Abruzzian coastline from Vasto to San Salvo Marina is home to long, beautiful, sandy beaches.

Mountain lovers and skiers on the other hand will be at home in the several districts equipped for winter sports such as Roccaraso and Pescasseroli. You can admire the peaks of Gran Sasso and Majella which slope gently down and become rolling hills with medieval villages, testaments to the Roman civilization and characteristic cities of art like Chiete, Sulmona or Scanno.

Abruzzo is also a paradise for sports; its varied landscape offers activities such as sailing, canoeing, windsurfing on specialized beaches, skiing, mountain-biking, trekking, climbing, and mountaineering. Paths and trails for horseback riding exist and there are even religious programs such as the fascinating Celestino V Hermitage.

The night life is centered round coastal retreats. An area is best experienced through its local products, wine and oil, and through its traditional festivals and celebrations; such as the Lancianese September Feasts, the Perdonanza Festival in Aquila, and the Living Nativity Scene in Rivisondoli.
