You are here : Why Abruzzo?


The mere mention of the word brings to mind pictures of centuries old architecture, sprawling olive orchards and vineyards, fantastic food/wine/coffee and so much more.  Visitors flock from the world over to make this one of the most frequently visited countries on the planet year in and year out.


When visitors come, however, its usually to such destinations as Rome, Venice, Sicily, Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast.  Few people outside of Italy have even heard of the region known as Abruzzo.  As a result this lovely, unspoiled gem tucked between the Apennines and the Adriatic has remained Italy's secret travel treasure. What makes this destination so special is one simple fact: Abruzzo is the place to go to see the REAL Italy.
