The undiscovered central Italy has so much to offer! These places are so dynamic; offering a clean sea, subdued hills, and high mountains where people have lived simply and in contact with nature for centuries. So close to Rome, yet touristic flows have hardly touched this area – leaving it beautiful for you to see!
We will explore villages on the Gran Sasso mountain and visit food producers who have run their businesses for generations. These local producers are extremely proud of their fresh cheese and organic wine. We will enjoy lunch with the family, Italian style! Skilled artisans will show us how they produce cloth and other artifacts the way their grandfathers taught them. We will also see incredible hilltop fortresses overlooking incredible views. This is the perfect trip for curious travelers!
Highlights: Ascoli Piceno, Sulmona, Teramo, Gran Sasso, Roma
