The Abruzzo region, a remote area in the heart of the Apennines, is famed for its natural beauty and has three large national parks: Gran Sasso-Laga, Maiella and Abruzzo. The region offers varied landscapes and old cities and villages in the mountains, which often are bewitchingly beautiful and untouched by time.
