Sea, lake and mountains : 4 things to do in Abruzzo

Have you already booked your holidays in Abruzzo, but don’t know what to do to fully enjoy your stay? We recommend 4 not to be missed experiences!

Excursion on the Gran Sasso

Gran Sasso is one of the most famous mountains of Italy. An exciting experience is to  hike all the way to the top.

Some sections are quite steep, ideal for athletic climbers. But the spectacular view which will be presented to you at an altitude of 800 metres will be well worth the effort of the climb! If you are lucky enough to have a clear day, you can even see the sea from this height!

Bike or horseback riding along the Campotosto

Campotosto Lake is a popular destination with tourists and sports lovers, especially during the summer season. The trail around the lake extends over 40 km and is well suited to biking.

Another popular activity is horseback riding, especially with the introduction of the Ippovia del Gran Sasso, the longest horseback riding trail in Italy.

Visit the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise

In the Abruzzo region, nature has always been considered an important heritage to preserve and value. So much so that this region has earned a European distinction: it is the only one who can boast of having one third of its area dedicated exclusively to nature parks and reserves.

Do not miss a chance to visit the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, the oldest in Italy. It is internationally renowned for its preseversation of species such as wolves and chamois.

Enjoy a meal on a “Trabocco” – Chieti

The “trabocco” is an old structure on stilts over the sea, a type of elongated “fishing machine” , very widespread, especially in the province of Chieti. Most of the “trabocco” can be visited by tourists, and some have even been turned into restaurants.

Whether it’s for lunch or dinner, you can delight your palate with delicious local fish. A suggestion? Try the “brodetto di pesce alla sanvitese “!
