A mountainous region with spectacular natural scenery, Abruzzo doesn’t always get the airtime it deserves. Abruzzo is centrally located just to the east of Lazio, Rome’s region. Sparkling lakes, Apennine mountaintop fortresses, grilled meats on sticks, Ovid’s hometown, and an Adriatic coastline await you.

What to eat?

Arrosticini, skewers of grilled lamb or mutton

What to see?

Rocca Calascio, one of the highest fortresses in Europe

What to do?

Drive to the coast to see the trabocchi, traditional fishing platforms built on stilts that jut into the sea.
