Abruzzo, located in the middle of the Italian peninsula, consists of several fascinating landscapes of rugged mountains separated by deep valleys and high plains. Abruzzo has a landscape that ranges from green hills and mountains to blue skies and sea. A holiday in Abruzzo means discovering forgotten villages, soaring mountains and a coastline that is sometimes sandy and sometimes rocky. In Abruzzo you will find high mountains, rolling hills, lush scenery, beaches, rivers, lakes and the sea. The Abruzzo region has three national parks, two regional parks and more than 40 protected areas. Abruzzo, whose natural areas make up 35 percent of the greenest regions of Europe, remains outside the traditional routes of mass tourism and contains a world of nature, history and traditions. In this region, where nature still plays a main role, you can explore an area with lots of natural beauty as well as a fantastic historic and artistic heritage as seen in its churches, monasteries, fortresses, castles and ancient villages. The landscape is covered with olive trees and vineyards, which are the pride of the regional agricultural production. Arts and crafts are everywhere, as are the folkloric traditions.
Penne is one of the main tourist areas of the province of Pescara. Penne is also “la città del Matton” (the stone city) because of its numerous buildings built almost entirely of brick. But the brick can also be found in the pavement of many of the narrow streets of the old town. Penne is a medieval town which has remained unchanged for many centuries. The city is still protected by massive ancient city walls. There are events held here throughout the year. Thanks to its strategic geographical location, Penne is a perfect holiday destination in both summer and winter. Just 30 minutes by car and you can reach the wonderful mountains as well as the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic where you can enjoy activities such as diving, canoeing, fishing, sailing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, free climbing and paragliding. Penne is also the natural gateway to the Gran Sasso Natural Park and the acclaimed Lago di Penne wildlife area. This lake is a WWF oasis, protected by the WWF.
