What awaits is a very variegated journey that features from the Roman Empire to the evocative, well-preserved medieval burgs of Abruzzi, the exploration of Latium – which is much more than “just” Rome -, the infinite poetry of Naples and its outskirts, the fascinating real Dolce Vita on the stupendous Amalfi coast, the unspoiled nature of the Gran Sasso natural park and the bucolic charm of the old stone villages in Abruzzi…

Campania

Campania, a very peculiar, messed-up region with a strong identity, incomparable to any other place in Italy, that you will fall in love with or definitely hate but can no way remain indifferent to. Naples, the city most often depicted in the classic Italian post-war cinema – with its chaos, its theatricality, its immense contrasts, and its inhabitants’ unique characterization – is probably the Italian town that foreigners know best, even if they have never set foot in our country. Capri, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pompei, Herculaneum (Ercolano), the Vesuvius … are names everyone has heard and dreamt of.
Yet let’s spend two more words about the Amalfi Coast where mountains embrace the sea, with its colorful houses that paint the hills as tableaus and its lovely fishermen villages, that represents one of the destinations most appreciated by visitors from all over the world coming to relax and enjoy the charm of the most lavish, spectacular and characterful Italian seaside.

Abruzzi

The Abruzzi region, also known as the green land of Europe because of its many parks, protected areas and natural reserves, features the highest peaks of the Apennine mountains. Its highest summit, called the Corno Grande, belongs to the Gran Sasso massif, very similar to the Alps, and peaks at 2 912 m. The Majella massif, south from the Gran Sasso, features the second highest peak: the Mount Amaro with 2 795 m. Gran Sasso and Majella also lend their names to two national parks, while Abruzzi’s territory also includes the Sirente Velino regional park and part of the National park of Abruzzi, Latium and Molise.
Actually, Abruzzi is Italy’s leading region for environmental conservation. Yet, despite the majesty of its landscapes, the beauty of its many burgs perched atop steep cliffs, and the enchanting atmosphere of such fine towns as L’Aquila and Sulmona, Abruzzi is still barely touched by mass tourism.

Latium

And Latium. Many people know nothing about this region but its main city, Rome, the most visited destination in Italy for “pedestrian” tourists. Yet Latium has a strong identity that goes far beyond its capital. It is an ancient and bewitching land rich in tradition, the authentic nursery of Italian roots where the Etruscan, Roman, and Catholic civilizations arose.
A treasure trove of artworks and architectural gems, the whole region offers many and varied glimpses of the past, of inestimable beauty and appeal – Roman remains, castles, crypts, and monasteries – with such a choice that deciding what to see can be a real headache. All this against an impressive backdrop of majestic parks and lakes, such as Nemi, Bolsena and Bracciano.
Lazio is still sprinkled with gorgeous noble villas, many now converted into first class hotels, often nestling amid vineyards that offer visitors white wines as refreshing and cheerful as the region’s people.
