We took the cable car from Fonte Cearreto up to the hotel where Mussolini was held by the Italians and was "rescued" by the Germans. The hotel is faded glory and in need of some TLC but it is still worth a wander round as the history is interesting (quite well documented in English) and you can easily imagine how... More

The Gran Sasso national park offers trails for walking, biking or horse riding. The views are fantastic and it's all so easy to access. We drove to the ski resort of Prati di Tivo and parked near the main square. It was Sunday but most things were open and there were a lot of people there (but not too many!)... More

Gran Sasso park is great for hiking and outdoor sports on every level. Only thing thats difficult, is finding information in other languages than italian. The hotel at campo imperatore is a good starting point for many nice hikes, including the 2912 m corno grande

Due to Umbria's status as a guide-book destination, the Monti Sibillini park there is better known. But during many seasons Gran Sasso park in the province of Abruzzo has more flowers in bloom and, almost always, far fewer tourists. Enjoy it all to yourself.

Visited with friends and did a couple of hikes over 2 days. Amazing plateaus and mountains. Well trodden trails mostly but a good map essential. We were out of season ( End Sept) so mountain cafes were closed. Beautiful scenery, well worth a visit.

We visited the ski resort on Gran Sasso with family on our visit in April. We took the ski lift to the top, and even though it was spring, people were still skiing, and the snow was abundant. Of course, being tourists, we went in sneakers and trudged through the snow to climb to the very top to ring the... More

Really enjoyed both the journey to/from Gran Sasso and the experience of walking there. The wild flowers were so beautiful, all in flower at the same time, I feel privileged to have had the good fortune to visit at this time. When thinking to go there I did not envisage the scale or magnificence of the mountains in this region.... More

This mountain area (or plateau) has something for everyone. Either if you like mountaineering, hiking or just barbecuing this place definitely has something for everyone. Easy accessible by car

Our family wanted to take us to the "montagna" and we couldn't wait! This is way out of what we see in Philadelphia. There were 8 adults and 2 kids and we drove 2 cars up, up and way up to the top of Gran Sasso. Wow, what beautiful views while driving up. The roads are quite narrow and I... More
