Abruzzi, also called Abruzzo, region is in central Italy, fronting the Adriatic sea. Most of the region's area is mountainous or hilly.
The Apennines consist of three chains trending northwest-soutwest. The easternmost group, including Gran Sasso d'Italia and Majella, is the highest.
Three National Parks protect this wonderful environment where wolves, bears, red deers and chamoises still share the most wild areas. A really rare biodiversity in the densely populated Western Europe!
But I do not want to show you here the magnificence of this Nature. I'm just pleased to invite you to enjoy the beauty of this region, where small villages are surrounded by wonderful mountains, and History is in intimate contact with Nature. A perfect mixture for your soul.
