From the sea to the mountains

This area is called the greenest area in Europe and the "bridge" connecting the south and north of Italy. Tourists are attracted by the warm sea, sandy beaches and high mountain peaks. Abruzzo is also famous for its picturesque and historic towns such as L'Aquila and Roseto degli Abruzzi.

Abruzzo is also a paradise for nature lovers. There are several national parks , incl. Dei Gran Sasso - Monti della Laga, Delia Maiella and D'Abruzzo. Interestingly, Abruzzo is also often called the "Holy Land under the skies of Italy" because of the large number of churches, monasteries and places of worship. One thing is for sure - everyone who comes to Abruzzo will be charmed by its beauty and atmosphere.

Roseto degli Abruzzi is one of the favorite resorts of the Adriatic-Abruzian coast, also known as the "place of roses" . The town impresses with its unique atmosphere and long and sandy beaches. Near the village there is a 3-star family- run Camping Village Eurcamping . This place is highly appreciated by guests. No wonder, the resort quickly captivates with friendly service and picturesque location. The campsite is reminiscent of an extraordinary garden full of oleanders, pines and palm trees.

Peperoncini and Centerby flavor
At Camping Village Eurcamping, guests can enjoy a restaurant serving local delicacies. The resort also has a bar and a cafe where we can drink espresso, cappuccino or eat delicious ice cream. It is worth visiting all these places often, because the cuisine of Abruzzo has many unusual flavors to offer. They are dominated by pasta, vegetables and meat. A local addition to the dishes is peperoncino called diavolino , which means devil (it really adds a lot of spiciness to the dishes). Meat dishes are based primarily on lamb and mutton. A popular dish of the region is arrosto di agnello di latte (roast of milk lamb), you should also try piernas de cordero con alcachofas (lamb shank with artichokes), and mutton chops (koyun pirzolasi) are a real feast for the palate. Abruzzo is famous for one more specialty - it is Centerba , a herbal tincture made from one hundred types of herbs.
Trip to L'Aquila
While relaxing at Camping Village Eurcamping, it is worth visiting L'Aquila, which is the capital of Abruzzo. The name of the city comes from the Latin word "aquila" meaning an eagle. This is related to the characteristic buildings of the capital of Abruzzo, which was built on a plan that resembles the outline of an imperial eagle. The most important monuments of the city are churches. One of them is the Duomo cathedral from the 13th century, which was damaged by the earthquake in 1703. The present façade dates from the 19th century. Another is the Church of San Bernardino dating back to 1472.
It is also worth visiting the Forte Spagnolo castle , built in 1534 by the Spanish viceroy Don Pedro of Toledo. Currently, the National Museum of Abruzzo operates there. L'Aquila's landmark is the Luminosa Fountain ("Luminous") with sculptures of two women carrying a large jug. There are many interesting archaeological sites near the town. One of them is the Roman city of Amiternum.
Italy, Croatia, Spain ... are the countries I would like to come back to every summer. I like to discover new places, whether it is a bustling capital city or a quiet town on a mountain slope.
