For nature lovers, Abruzzo is synonymous with Gran Sasso Mountain and its National Park. It is true that from a naturalist point of view this region boasts rare species of flora and fauna like the Marsican Brown Bear and the Apennine Wolf. Gran Sasso is without a doubt a great destination for skiers, alpinists, excursionists and all mountain enthusiasts.
Abruzzo offers even more: beach establishments, religious itineraries, folklore and the artisan products of large and small towns. You can find tranquillity and relaxation in a region where life flows along at a relaxed pace and on a simple, uncomplicated human scale.
Rural tourism facilities are mostly family-run structures and they are an ideal destination of hiking enthusiasts, but they are also great for those looking for a vacation in close contact with nature and farm-style traditions.
