Why Have a Vacation In Italy?

Italy Tour Packages – Travel Italy

To come to Italy is the dream of many. Australians are great travelers and Italy and France are on the top of their list for their European vacation.

Italy’s 20 regions are so diverse from north, central and southern Italy.

The grand tour to Italy almost always includes the obligatory stops in Rome, Florence and Venice. To see these great historic cities are a must, however with it comes many crowds and tourists and queues of people waiting to see the same places.. People holding guide books and iphones, reading the same notes, pushing to see similar sights, it can often be daunting.

If you travel off the beaten track and east of Rome towards the Apennines and the Adriatic Coast you will get to Abruzzo.  A region which has everything you dream of for an Italian vacation… minus the crowds.


Here are some reasons why Abruzzo has it all:

A region in Italy with 3 National Parks is quite unheard of.  Abruzzo is truly the green heart of Italy and being only 3 hrs east of Rome, you can be a world away hiking in the spectacular Gran Sasso National Park where the highest peak of the Apennines looms.

It is a sanctuary for wildlife such as chamois, wolves, bears, royal eagles and otters.
