Aside from being the place where many spaghetti westerns were filmed, this place is another world! In summer, the fields full of grazing cows and sheep, fields of flowers, picnic at the Ristoro Rucciante where you buy the meat and cheese, but bring your own picnic supplies is out of this world. In winter, the white expanse of snow, great... More

Campo Imperatore a magnificent tour We left after breakfast (Fonter Cerreto) on a discovery. To make a long story short: incredibly impressive. and now the long story: you drive constantly between two mountain massifs on a kind of plateau, total zen and nothing else. After 20 minutes you can make a detour to a great panorama (hotel Campo Imperatore). Back... More

Especially end of May, the flowers on the high plane are wonderful. You can reach the Campo easily from Acca Lascio bed & breakfast. Furthermore ther are several very old villages nearby, perched on the hill tops. When you want to climb the Gran Sasso it self, then you have to come later, unless you have full mountain Climbing gear... More

Two weeks ago my family and I rode the tram up the side of Gran Sasso to Campo Imperatore that was firmly above treeline, and a winter wonderland. Skiers abounded in every direction, but sadly we didn't have time to partake in this, my favorite endeavor. However, we did get to spend nearly two glorious hours, exploring the old hotel... More

We took the cablecar from Fonte Cerreto and then walked in a circle passing by Rifugio Duca degli Abruzzi, Rifugio Garibaldi and Valico della Portella. The view was really amazing and the hike not too hard. It's a great getaway in Summer, when most of Italy is simmering in the heat. These are the highest mountains in central Italy and... More

We took a drive up to Campo Imperatore on our July vacation to Italy. If you drive here, you will feel like you will never arrive as the drive is along winding roads, and of course, you are going up. The scenery all the way is spectacular. The hotel at the site is historical in that it served as a... More

Campo imperatore is a great place you totally have to visit when you are in Abruzzo. It has a landscape you won't see anywhere else. Once you are there you don't forget to stop at local butcher shop which offers arrosticini, the meat sticks you can grill and eat there, they're simply delicious.

Truly a hidden gem. The plateau with the mountains in the background make this area great for hiking, camping or a picnic lunch. If you can make it for the Festival of the Sheep in August, that is one experience you do not want to miss.

Splendid alpine scenery plus the very interesting hotel that was Mussolini's vanity project and brief (comfortable) jail ( with a view) all make for a great day out. Bring a full tank of gas and be prepared for winding narrow steep roads and sweeping vistas.
