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.

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

One a quiet Sunday I decided to climb Corne Grande, the highest peak of the Gran Sasso range. From Campo Imperatore it was a straight forward and moderate climb to the top by the easy route "via normal". Towards the top the was some scrambling over rocks, but the hardest part of the journey was finding a spot to sit... More
