Corno Grande is the highest peak of all the Apennines. Next to it stands the Corno Piccolo, with a wild labyrinth of breathtaking shapes.

Pescasseroli is a citadel located in a vast plain surrounded by a mountainous landscape in the heart of the Abruzzo National Park. Thanks to its position, Pescasseroli is a tourist resort both in summer and in winter. The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times and was a center of woodworking and sheep farming.

In the citadel you can admire the ruins of a 13th century castle, some churches, and a natural history museum. If you want to reach the town by public transport, you need to take a train to Avezzano and then a bus to Pescasseroli.

San Vito and Fara San Martino

Abruzzo is the ideal destination for climbing enthusiasts, on rocks but also in trees! On the slopes of the Majella, in the Piana delle Mele area, it is possible to learn this fun discipline under the full supervision of professionals. The climbing areas are San Vito and Fara San Martino.
However, those who already practice climbing can head towards the Gran Sasso area: Monticchio, Capestrano and Assergi have the best rocks to climb.

Sulmona

Abruzzo can be explored by bicycle, as it is full of relatively quiet roads. But the region is home to the famous Blockhaus peak, climbed several times during the Giro d'Italia. To emulate the champions of two wheels without having to travel hundreds of kilometers, the ideal is to stay in Sulmona, a town located close to the Majella National Park, known among other things for its tradition in the production of sugared almonds.

Hikers from the Blockhaus will certainly love the ascent to Monte Amaro, up to 2793 meters above sea level, the highest peak of the Majella and the second highest in the Apennines, reachable through limestone plateaus and wide ridges.
