Although rich in natural beauty and history, Abruzzo is only just starting to be discovered by mass tourism. Abruzzo's wealth of castles and medieval towns, especially near the town of L'Aquila has earned it in some quarters the nickname of 'Abruzzoshire', by analogy with the 'Chiantishire' nickname sometimes used to refer to the Chianti area of Tuscany. Mountain Climbing. The Gran Sasso massif sports the Italian peninsula's highest peak, Corno Grande, and Europe's southernmost glacier, Il Calderone. Abruzzo's lesser known peaks, especially the gentler slopes of the Majella, offer climbers the opportunity to hike and climb in solitude. Beach Resorts. Abruzzo's 129 km. long sandy coastline is home to a many popular beach resorts. Abruzzo holds some of Italy's best-preserved medieval and Renaissance hill towns.With one of the best italian wines and delicious kitchen (fresh seafood and favolouse meat from mountains). Pescara is full of beach disco and party places.

To the south the scenery changes radically: from Ortona to Vasto and as far as S. Salvo, sloping shores surrounded by the rich Mediterranean vegetation appear on the coastline. They too, are well equipped for a pleasant holiday. The nostalgic fishing past emerges between S. Vito and Fossacesia, where the travocchi, singular fishing huts built on piles, are still today used by the local fishermen.
