About the Area:
Abruzzo is a region of Southern italy with an area of 10,763 square km and a population of 1.2 million. Abruzzo borders the region of Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and south-west, Molise to the south-east, and the Adriatic Sea to the east.
Geographically, Abruzzo is divided into a mountainous area in the west, which includes the Gran Sasso d’italia, and a coastal area in the east with beaches on the Adriatic Sea.
Abruzzo is known as “the greenest region in Europe” as almost half of its territory, the largest in Europe, is set aside as national parks and protected nature reserves. There are three national parks, one regional park, and 38 protected nature reserves.
These ensure the survival of 75% of Europe’s living species, including rare species such as the small wading dotterel, the golden eagle, the Abruzzo chamois, the Apennine wolf and the Marsican brown bear. Abruzzo is also home to Calderone, Europe’s southernmost glacier.
The Abruzzo region has two types of climate that are strongly influenced by the Apennine Mountains, dividing the climate of the coastal and sub-Apennine hills from the interior’s high mountain ranges.
Coastal areas have a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and mild winters and rainy hills with a sublittoral climate where temperatures decrease progressively with increasing altitude and precipitation with altitude.
Abruzzo’s vegetation is characterized by different Mediterranean ecosystems. The coast and the surrounding areas include typical plants of Mediterranean shrubland, such as myrtle, heather and mastic, while in the hilly areas other species grow, including olive, pine, willow, alder, acacia, capers, rosemary, hawthorn, and almond trees, interspersed with oak trees.
in the past decade, tourism has increased, in particular by internal and European arrivals. Abruzzo is world-famous for its wildlife parks and regional park, and 38 protected areas between oasis, regional reserves, and state reserves.
The inland mountainous region contains several ski resorts, and coastal tourism is also well-developed, in particular, the Trabocchi Coast.
