Travelers stories: Shawn and her Only Women Travel in Abruzzo

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Since we started our adventure with Italia Sweet Italia we have always shared our passion for Abruzzo and tried to instill it in our guests. That is why one of the things we valued the most is their opinion about the trip. We love to think they will go back to their hometown with a piece of our region: not only postcards, magnets or books, but an experience they will remember (and maybe make them come back!).

We decided to collect some of them to make everyone live what they saw and felt through their own words.

This history starts from a desire to experience a vacation in Abruzzo, because Shawn, living in USA, wanted to create new memories together.

She visited Abruzzo in 2023, to enjoy an experience with Italia Sweet Italia, such as our Springtime in Abruzzo!

Why did you choose Abruzzo and Italia Sweet Italia for your holidays? Did you find what you were looking for?

I chose it because I had heard great things about it, and they were all true!

Fabrizio is a fabulous guide and the trip was so special because it felt like we were part of the community!

We got to meet amazing people and have such authentic experiences.

Cooking classes, delicious food, amazing sights, warm and friendly people.

It was truly unforgettable and I highly recommend Italia Sweet Italia!

Who did you travel with?

Women’s tour group.

When did you visit Abruzzo?

April 2023.

What specific activities did you enjoy most on your trip?

I loved eating all of the traditional food and meeting the local people.

How would you define the Abruzzese cuisine? What is your favorite dish you tasted or prepared over there?



The cheese and egg balls were my favorite!

What is the funniest moment of your vacation?

It is truly hard to choose just one, there was such a wide variety and I loved them all. That is what made the trip so special for me.

Is there a favorite image or memory that stays in your mind? Can you describe the moment and the emotions that you felt at the time?


I loved the variety of experiences.

Did you feel safe all the time?


Do you think there is anything that should be improved or changed?

I would remove from the daily visits, the tour of the farm with the animals, because it was not very exciting.

Would you recommend coming to Abruzzo and do you have any advice for future travelers?

Yes! I advise others to make their reservations now!!!
