Southern Italy Snapshots: Abruzzo

Since January, we’ve traveled through six of southern Italy’s most beautiful regions, including Puglia, Calabria, Sicily, Molise, Basilicata and Campania, all via some of the most beautiful photos on Flickr. Today the Southern Italy Snapshot series continues with Abruzzo.

Abruzzo is the closest southern Italian region to the Eternal City and makes an easy day or weekend trip from the nation’s capital. Abruzzo is particularly celebrated for its national and regional parks that cover roughly 2/3 of the region. The four provinces are Chieti, L’Aquila, Pescara and Teramo and its nicest cities include Pescasseroli, Sulmona and Castelli.
