Abruzzo's Location...


Abruzzo lies in the heart of Italy just on the other side of the mountains from Rome.  The region boasts both calm flat beaches that stretch for miles and breath-taking mountains that range from stark and rocky to lush and tree-filled.  Where else can you have lunch a mile above sea level in the midst of ancient sheep-herding grounds and dinner that same evening by the seaside?

Just a mere hour and a half drive from Rome on a modern freeway through spectacular vistas Abruzzo lies within easy reach of both abundant natural wonders and one of the world's truly enduring cities.  The region is home to three magnificent National Parks, numerous Blue Flag beaches, and scores of endearing towns and villages both medieval and modern.
