Sightseeing Itineraries in Abruzzo
Our (unconventional) map of Abruzzo: not with the towns and villages, but with an eagle, bear and chamois (representing the natural parks), sunumbrellas on the Adriatic and a skier (for leisure time in summer and winter), a Romanesque church and the statue of an Italic warrior (for history and architecture), a woman working on the traditional tombolo (for the typical crafts).
The discovery of the many resources this region has to offer to visitors has just about started, and under many points of view its natural, artistic and cultural treasures are still largely unknown to mass tourism. You will be astonished in finding the range and wealth of resources for winter and summer sports, sightseeing, excursions which is possible to practice in this region. This short overview will take us along some basic itineraries to the main points of interest of Abruzzo. [Read more about the Abruzzo region here]
