It may be an under the radar destination, but Abruzzo has it all: from nature to art, from history to cuisine, this region in south-central Italy offers plenty of reasons to visit. Here’s why.
We go to Italy, in part, because we need to touch the richness of past years. Because mere modernity is sometimes crass, sometimes a shade juvenile in its reach for something new and different. We relax there (if we give enough time) into the way of life, of family, of eating and drinking, that speaks with eloquence of a more community based and steadier flow of more substantial living. That morning cappuccino is somehow unique. That pasta somehow richer, that mellow evening sun somehow longer in the sky. And all of this in a country, a nation, just 150 years young!"
