This is the first and only English-language guide to Abruzzo, a region that lies just an hour’s drive from Rome, yet has never been discovered by mass tourism. Written by an author born and bred in the region, it explores Abruzzo’s three national parks, where skiing, hiking and wildlife-watching opportunities abound. It takes visitors to Abruzzo’s beaches, which have been voted some of the best in Europe. It tours ancient hilltop towns, Neolithic caves and Roman ruins, and offers detailed practical information including transport and accommodation options for all budgets.
Luciano Di Gregorio was born in Pescara, Abruzzo’s largest city; he migrated with his family to Melbourne, Australia when he was in his teens. He now divides his time between the UK and Abruzzo, where he teaches in secondary school, writes, and is compiling a family tree that dates back to the 14th century.
