The Abruzzo area is bounded to the north by the Marche region, to the west and southwest by Lazio, to the southeast by Molise, and to the east by the Adriatic Sea. There are three national parks, natural reserves, and protected areas within a third of the 10,795 square kilometers in the region. With the Gran Sasso, Europe’s southernmost glacier and a 130-mile stretch of coastline all inside its borders, Italy has a lot to offer.
