The Abruzzo region is a remote region often overlooked by tourists. It has spectacular natural scenery,
medieval castles and villages, monasteries, and Roman ruins.
Two-thirds of the Abruzzo's land is mountainous with the rest being hills and coast. A third of the region
is designated as national or regional parkland. Bordering regions are the Marche to the north, Lazio to the
west, Molise to the south, and the Adriatic Sea to the east.
The name of the region, originally Aprutium, is believed to have come from that of one of the ancient tribes,
Abruzzo What to taste
Abruzzo has a rich culinary tradition, with various traditions attached to each province.
The maccheroni alla chitarra are highly-renowned (home-made pasta cut on a machine with thin steel blades),
while scrippelle are thin strips of pasta eaten in soup, typical in Teramo. On the coast, most first courses are
fish-based, often made with tomato to enchance the taste of "poor man's fish," often found on the shores of
ancient fishing villages.
As for the second courses, the typical recipe of Chieti is scapece, pickled fried fish. Guazzetto or fish broth is
also heavily-consumed in coastal hubs, and often revisited in the zones of Teramo Province.
Other than sea fare, one will find plenty of lamb, kid, mutton, loin of pork and ventricina, all typical salamis that
are produced locally. And if it's meat you are looking for, you have come to the right place. Abruzzo's highly
A typical meal in Abruzzo is accompanied by a selection of the best wines of the region: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo,
Sangiovese and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo. These are both national and international favorites, esteemed for the excellent
production process, quality and price. Abruzzo also features a number of organic wineries in the zones of Chieti and Teramo.
Among the desserts, often made with almonds and honey, we highlight nougat or torrone, confetti (the typical sugared almonds, a specialty of Sulmona), cicerchiata, small balls of fried dough covered in honey, mostaccioli and bocconotto, typical of the Province
of Chieti. sought-out smoked meats from the Abruzzese Mountains are number one for second dishes.
Those who enjoy food can drive from the Adriatic coast up to Peligna Valley through olive groves and vineyards and reach the hinterland, where they can visit farms and taste wines, oil and delicious local products.
Finally, do not miss the folklore and religious festivals and events: from the famous Perdonanza Festival in L'Aquila to the Serpari
di San Domenico Fair in Cocullo, from the Living Nativity scenes in Rivisondoli to the many fairs in the small towns of the region.
There are fewer and fewer places left around the European shores of the Mediterranean where you can bathe in safe, clean water by a quiet beach in front of orchards and vineyards. Fewer still where such is the volume of traffic that you can pick up your luggage at an international airport just minutes after you have landed.
Abruzzo, with mountains to the west, and the Adriatic in the east, is still an unspoilt region of Italy. Unpretentious as well as unspoilt is Vasto, about an hour south of the airport at Pescara. The old town overlooks a long sandy beach, a short walk down the hill from the centre (you could catch bus number 4 on the way back) and a clutch of low-rise hotels. A little further up the coast, past the lighthouse at Punta Penna, is another, even quieter, beach, by a nature reserve at Punta Aderci. Here, you can also see trabocchi, curious wooden contraptions used by local fishermen to catch fish - mainly prawns - without getting into the water.
Vasto, at this time of year, is a calm and friendly town, a perfect size, it seems, though its mayor, Luciano La Penna,
pointed out that its population of 40,000 rises to 100,000 when Italians from Rome, Naples, and the north, come for
the high summer - July and August.
Now you can walk around without hassle or bustle visiting the churches, the Palazzo d'Avalos, the town's most imposing building overlooking the sea and seek shade in its attractive Neapolitan-style garden.Nearby is the cathedral of San Giuseppe. In a corner
of the square at the Universal Caffe you can be refreshed by a generous glass of proseccco at a cost of €2 (£1.60), the price, it seems, of all aperos anywhere in the town.
