Castiglione - An Advantageous Location


Castiglione a Casauria is, quite simply, one of the most convenient locations for all things Abruzzo as well as an easy access to Rome.  The town is a short but beautiful five minute jaunt down the hill to Italy's modern freeway (Autostrada) system where the beaches of Pescara are a mere half hour away and the edge of Rome is only an hour and a half.  Located at the southern entrance of the Gran Sasso National Park one only needs to drive a few minutes to climb into breath-taking scenery that defies description.  Going south through the neighboring town of Tocco Da Casauria opens up the Maiellan Mountains, whose lush green hillsides and spectacular ski resorts rival those of Colorado.
