Holidays to Abruzzo

Nestled between the Adriatic waters and the slopes of the Apennines in central Italy lies a rich and fertile land whose features are countless: museums and art galleries, a variety of ski slopes, nature parks, medieval churches and gorgeous beaches all form part of the rich tapestry that is Abruzzo. It is a town with something for everyone no matter the season. The majority of visitors to Abruzzo are drawn to the beaches, the medieval monuments, or the snow; but the town has much more to offer in way of crafts, good food and wine, spas and sports facilities. There is little that Abruzzo does not offer in the way of sightseeing attractions, activities, and entertainment, and no visitor that places this city on their cruising itinerary will be disappointed.

Skiing is the name of the game during the winter in Abruzzo; every glance lends its way to rocky peaks in this land of mountains. Marked alpine features with the most formidable complex mountain ranges and strong and enduring snow make for a skiers haven. The size of the plateaus is ideal for cross-country skiing while downhill skiers and snowboard lovers alike will adore the high peaks. The range of terrain allows for both mild family excursions to full throttle extreme winter sports.

During the summer months, the inland Abruzzo Mountains offer a thousand tracks to explore. The hilltop villages are welcoming, the medieval abbeys enticing, and the calendar of folklore and ancient traditions fascinating. Why not hike up one of the many stunning mountain ranges, or take a stroll across an evergreen wood or near-derelict sumptuous meadow? The state of preservation in the area is marvellous and the sparkling clean, crisp fresh air makes it all the more enjoyable. The town's national parks are to be visited and admired.

Abruzzo is a melting pot of culture and religion. From north to south it provides a goldmine of places to be explored and traditions to be treasured: churches of architectural might, castles and mansions, and precious works of art all have a place here. The villages dotted around the countryside provide just as much insight into this town's history as any gallery given that the ageless rural traditions are seen first hand. The list of things to see and do has increased with the restoration of churches and enhancement of archaeological sites, the development of large and small museums, and the new visitor centres within the parks that welcome numerous expectant tourists month after month.

Sample a variety of different foods in Abruzzo: enjoy the simplicity of traditional village grub that consists of hearty broths, tasty mutton dishes and cheeses, or dine in luxury and experience the 'refined bourgeois' menus of Teramo that enhance the basic flavours. There is also the cuisine of the coastline; 133 kilometres of shoreline provide the diner with an array of uncomplicated yet sophisticated seafood dishes. Abruzzo is a year-round destination packed full of activity and adventure; do not miss out on what this region in central Italy has to offer.
