Full description
Explore Abruzzo and discover its popular historical sites with the help of a local guide. Experience the film "Ladyhawke" as you visit the movie's filming locations, too. After meeting your guide, embark on a journey to the National Park of Gran Sasso and the Laga mountains through the ancient sheep route of Tratturo Magno. Arrive at Campo Imperatore, known as little Tibet, to admire the view at 2000 meters above sea level. Take a photo of the place in which Mussolini was imprisoned during the Second World War. Have lunch in a hut in the middle of nowhere where you can buy arrosticini (sheep meat) and cook it yourself on the outdoor grill. In the afternoon, head over to the Castle of Rocca Calascio, which dates back to the year 1380 and is also one of the shooting locations for the movie "Ladyhawke." Next, stop in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, one of the most beautiful Medici-owned villages in Italy. Explore the village and see the traditional arts and crafts shops where you can taste and buy authentic Italian products like saffron from L'Aquila, the red gold, local lentils, and traditional cheese, honey, and jam. Once you're done exploring, your guide will take you back to your preferred drop-off point.
