Sun, Sea, Mountains, Good Food & Wine
For nature lovers, Abruzzo is a great place to visit. It’s not overly touristy, but has everything someone looking for culture and relaxation could wish for: sun, sea, mountains, good food and wine. Our tailor-made holidays are ideal for small groups of friends, a few couples, families, or how about a team building cooking class for your company?
Silence & Colour, Flavours & Perfumes
You’ll hear the silence of Abruzzo, you will get lost among its colours, you’ll remember its flavours and perfumes for a long time and we can guarantee be keen to visit again. It’s difficult to forget the breathtaking views of Abruzzo: from the Adriatic Sea to the Maiella and Gran Sasso – the highest mountains of central Italy – from the reserves and the natural parks to the countryside, from dawn to sunset on the mountains. You will see and meet many Italians – men and women, young and old – but, more importantly, you’ll have new friends who love their region and are proud to tell you about it. You will feel at home with Italia Sweet Italia.
