Villages and small towns in Abruzzo

Abruzzo is a region that is full of villages perched on the Apennine chain or nestled on the hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The lush green nature of the mountainous part mixes with the sandy beaches and the imposing headlands of the coast. Despite the earthquakes that have struck the territory even in recent years, Abruzzo retains its rocky charm thanks to the constant dedication and great tenacity of its inhabitants, proud of their roots and the villages in which they live, such as Atri, Pescocostanzo, San Vito Chietino or Roccascalegna, real "postcards" to be sent all over the world to invite tourists to visit unique and unmistakable places.
