Abruzzo Italy. . . the land of style, culture, romanticism and myriad culinary delights


Abruzzo is located in central Italy and stretches from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, on a mainly mountainous and wild land.

Abruzzo's landscape with the high and steep peaks of the Gran Sasso, the Laga Mountains and Mount Majella, slopes down to a wide range of hills, until it finally reaches the Adriatic coast. The coast has long and sandy beaches to the north and pebbly beaches to the south.

Abruzzo has a rich culinary tradition, with various traditions attached to each province. The home-made pasta known as Maccheroni alla Chitarra comes from this region. and Scrippelle which are thin strips of pasta to eat with soup, are typical in Teramo. Most dishes on the coast, are based on fish.

A typical main course could be Chieti is Scapece, pickled fried fish, but wherever you go you will find plenty of lamb, kid and mutton but also loin of pork and ventricina which is a typical salami produced locally.

A typical meal in Abruzzo is accompanied by a selection of the best wines of the region, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Sangiovese and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo.

There is currently nothing listed for this destination.
