There are several National and Regional Parks within its boundaries including 16 separate ski areas in the Abruzzo Appenines. Many of these are quite small and wouldn't be considered to be 'destination' resorts.

Among the chilliest zones in Italy, it is characterized by consistent snowfall, November to April. While in summertime it is accessible by several passable roads, in wintertime it is easier to take the cable car transport connecting Campo Imperatore to the Commune of Assergi.

Abruzzo Mediterranean Coastline

The shores of Abruzzo are variegated: gently sloping sandy beaches with a low coastline in the North and rugged, indented coastline in the South.

In the South, the scenery changes dramatically: it is a more sedate area and nature reigns supreme: an alternation of coves, bushes of broom, vineyards, long stretches of sandy shores, all framed by luscious Mediterranean vegetation. Trabocchi Especially attractive are the curious trabocchi, singular fishing huts built on piles. The beaches of Abruzzo are particularly suited for families seeking a tranquil holiday and also for the young who will find in Abruzzo a wide range of entertainment facilities and outdo or pursuits, where sports enthusiasts can go sailing, do windsurfing, canoeing, fishing and scuba diving
