Abruzzo in Italy

Abruzzo, one of Italy's unblemished treasures is a serene mingling of mountains, hills and coastline, sparsely populated and unscathed by mass tourism. Yet there’s so much to tell, so much to see, so much to feel, just not enough hours in the day. It’s worth writing home about. 

Discover ancient and medieval architecture, birth place of famous names, historical archaeological sites, time-honoured traditions & local customs, imposing mountain ranges, panoramic rolling hills, the finest olive oil, excellent wines, mouth-watering cuisine, tastiest cheeses, renowned confetti, handmade ceramics and white sandy beaches & rocky coves coupled with protected nature reserves where hundreds of rare animal species roam free. This makes Abruzzo as we know it, heaven on earth.                                                    


Alphabetically, Abruzzo takes top spot out of the twenty Italian regions. Located in the  central- eastern part or the heart of Italy, Abruzzo borders with Marche to the north, Molise to the south, and Lazio to the west and almost 140km of the Adriatic Sea coastline to the east. 

Abruzzo is made up of the four provinces of L’Aquila, Chieti, Pescara and Teramo. The regional capital is L’Aquila. 

The region, being mainly mountainous and hilly, rolls gently down to the Adriatic coast, thereby enjoying both a continental and maritime climate. January is the coldest month when the average temperature is 8*C on the coast and below freezing inland. During the summer the average temperatures in the two areas are 27*C and 24*C respectively. 

About 30% of Abruzzo territory is protected by environmental legislation, making it the only region in the whole of Europe to hold such a status. It is no wonder, therefore, Abruzzo is known as the “region of parks” 

This climatic and environmental feature makes Abruzzo an all-year-round holiday destination; the ideal place for sun-worshippers & nature-lovers, skiers & mountaineers, canoeists, hikers & cyclists or you can just relax in a café and observe the world go by.
