If you need a reason to leave Rome or Milan and Florence here it is. If you are a wilderness person for hiking go no further. This is why Italy has remained as it should be. Given a choice between visiting the Vatican and Rome or going to this park in central Italy to explore the Apennines you should know... More

There are some great hikes starting in Pescassèroli, Opi and the Barrea lake area. It's hard to spot any bears nowadays (15 years ago there were still 300 bears - now there are only around 30-40 bears left) but tourist information usually seems to know where bears can be spotted. Definitely bring binoculars if you want to look for bears.

Easy to reach from Rome without a car. Trains leave Tiburtina every 2 hours to Avezzano and are about 7 euros. From Avezzano you can buy bus tickets to Pescasseroli [the town in the heart of the park] for 5 euros, either on the bus or at the bus station in Piazza Kennedy (right outside the train station). Not a... More

The area of the park include high mountains, lakes, woods and little towns with a typical flavor. Sulmona is a nice town with its central street cover with small stores with the typical Confetti made in form of flowers, dolls etc. One of the small towns with beautiful views in Barrea with the lake and the mountains cover with snow....

For an area synonymous with nature,the three national parks of Abruzzo,Lazio and Molise , comprise a bounty that has rewarded us every time we have visited. Two thirds of the park is covered with beech forest,unbroken expanses unique to the entire Apennine chain. its always hard to encounter,the elusive wildcat,wolves and Marsican bears,seeing them is indeed a rare bonus.

I have just come back from a holiday in the Abruzzo region, Italy and can honestly say this is one of Italy's hidden gems! Amazingly beautiful landscapes and not hugely touristy which is exacting what I wanted. I went on a Gastronomy holiday with a firm called Frui (www.frui.co.uk). They had been recommended to me by a friend who had... More

My parents live in Palombaro and so Paso Di Lanciano is only a 40 min drive into the mountains. We decided to take our 3.5 year old and 1.5 year old up for the day and to organise a starter ski lesson for our oldest. What a perfect day. The resort is so small and friendly with a handful of...
