We love this National Park and visit annually. The drive into the park goes above the tree line and although high into the mountains, you drive along a lovely green rolling plateau dotted with sheep, horses and cows. Many times the animals are in the...More

We did the day hike up to Corne Grande in the Gran Sasso national park (following the cicerone hiking guide book of Abruzzo). Stunning scenery but not an easy hike. You reach 2,900 m and the last couple of a hundred are quite a scramble....More

Beautiful nature. If you love the mountains, the silence, the wilderness, then this is the place to be! Enjoy climbing or just walking in the loneliness

really enjoyed the trip there/back and just being there. Flowers were beautiful. Walking is very nice and views are spectacular. Would definitely recommend and it will give you a better perspective of the whole area, which is not all about beaches

Beautiful area, plenty of trails, very peaceful during the time we stayed (June 20-25 2014). The park has plenty of signss around for distances and time it takes to get to peaks and other notable places. Easy to get to from Rome by bus or...More

This wild and lovely scenery is reminiscent of Denali National Park in Alaska. Add in countless medieval fortified hilltop villages and plenty of free ranging animals and it makes for an unforgettable experience. Roads are windy, narrow and steep but scenery is absolutely beautiful.

No public transport I know of, even with BlaBlaCar you'd need to be very lucky.
