People’s reaction when they set foot in Abruzzo is always the same: they fall so instantly and hopelessly in love with everything — the multi-colored fertile landscapes, the splendidly preserved art, architectural treasures and ruins, the simultaneous contrast and convergence of richness and simplicity, the warm and welcoming people, and of course the abundant, spectacular food.
The western part of Abruzzo is only one hour from Rome by car, but somehow it has not yet been invaded by the hordes of tourists making their mad-dash pilgrimages each year to pack Rome, Florence, Venice, and Naples all into one holiday. Here in Abruzzo, holidays are more relaxing, but equally or more fulfilling. The Eastern side of Abruzzo is right on the Adriatic coastline, considered one of the cleanest and most beautiful in all of Italy, yet still not as well-known as the beaches in the south. In central Abruzzo, perfectly preserved medieval towns tucked away between majestic mountains, humbly share with visitors their rolling hillsides covered in vines, centennial olive groves, make a picturesque landscape.
