Abruzzo travel guide

4.3
Landmarks · Churches · Beaches
The western border of Abruzzo lies only 80 km (50 mi) from Rome, making this central region an accessible and easily explored holiday destination. One of the most sparsely populated regions on the Italian peninsula, Abruzzo has historically been a wild and rather empty part of the country. But it's a growing favorite with vacationers eager to experience an authentic taste of unspoiled Italy. The region, where the north of Italy meets the south, is bordered by the Apennines to the west and fringed by the Adriatic Sea on the east. Among numerous places to visit, you could journey across Abruzzo's valleys and tour its abandoned hill towns for days, encountering only a few other tourists along the way. The region's coastline is much more touristy, featuring many beach resorts and pristine natural areas.
