Wow! We totally didn't expect much from this place but it was Awesome! Take some warm clothes and good shoes. Despite hiking in September parts of the track were peppered with snow so be prepared. The weather changes quickly but it was a memorable place.

The harrowing drive - due to small twisty roads and sporty drivers- may necessitate stopping every so often to regain your spirits, but it is definitely worth it. Breathtaking vistas and grass hill sides.

Gran Sasso is the highest peak in the Appenne range of mountains. You can ascend to about 2100m via a gondola to an area that looks like it would be popular with skiers and snowboarders in the winter. Amazingly numerous people seemed to have driven...More

Gran Sasso park is great for hiking and outdoor sports on every level. Only thing thats difficult, is finding information in other languages than italian. The hotel at campo imperatore is a good starting point for many nice hikes, including the 2912 m corno grande

Due to Umbria's status as a guide-book destination, the Monti Sibillini park there is better known. But during many seasons Gran Sasso park in the province of Abruzzo has more flowers in bloom and, almost always, far fewer tourists. Enjoy it all to yourself.

Visited with friends and did a couple of hikes over 2 days. Amazing plateaus and mountains. Well trodden trails mostly but a good map essential. We were out of season ( End Sept) so mountain cafes were closed. Beautiful scenery, well worth a visit.
