THE GASTRONOMIC HERITAGE

Thanks to the closeness of mountains and coastline, Abruzzo has a very diverse gastronomic heritage that includes one the best saffron in the world, truffles, extra-virgin olive oil, fish soups, pecorino cheese, “arrosticini” (unique to Abruzzo sheep skewers), ventricina salami, many kinds of wines like Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and much more.

GREEN AND BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Considered the greenest region on the European continent, Abruzzo has 75% of the flora and fauna species in Europe, and three National Parks. You will find the Apennine ski slopes on the west side and the blue waters of the Adriatic Sea on the east coast, some of them only 20 miles away, making it possible to spend the morning skiing and the afternoon at the beach enjoying breathtaking views.

ENCHANTED MEDIEVAL VILLAGES

You can admire many castles and charming hilltop villages completely stone made that will let you feel magic atmospheres, and go back to medieval times. You can also meet old ladies in pinafores who bring their chairs outside their homes and sit in gossipy groups, shelling beans or stringing onions into plaits.

THE TRABOCCHI COAST

A blue sea caresses a 26-miles coast, which is known as the Trabocchi Coast for its collection of centuries old fishing net structures called trabocchi. These wooden platforms extend into the sea, allowing fisherman to safely reach deep waters. Some of them are still managed by generations of fisherman who converted them into restaurants. It is possible to discover the Trabocchi Coast biking along a fascinating cycle path.

THE ANCIENT VASTO, OUR BASE ON THE ADRIATIC SEA

Vasto is a hilltop town overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The old centre is a lovely medieval spot with Roman ruins and beautiful buildings such as the castle and Palazzo d’Avalos. If you keep wandering through the narrow alleyways you will find yourself speechless in front of the view over the gulf, from where you can also spot the charming Tremiti Islands and Gargano promontory in Puglia. Vasto is also well known for the variety of its beaches and the nature reserve of Punta Aderci.
