We'll be back next season
Oct 2019
Ascended to the highest point of the Apennines-Corno Grande 2912 m. What can you say - emotions are off scale, delight and desire to return. The locals call these places little Tibet. About these places very few Russian reviews, which is a pity. We went with a guide because of lack of information, did not regret. Russians, indeed, very little. The region is beautiful, people are sincere, the wine is delicious.

great hiking, wild flowers and Mountain views
May 2019 • Couples
We spent and afternoon hiking up on the side of the mountain, checking out the wild flowers and capturing photos of all the mountains as they peeked in and out of the clouds. The hiking trail we took was near by one of the ski lifts, there were also other hiking trails that lead into the meadows below. We didn't hike too far, but it looks like it could be made into a much longer trek.

There is a restaurant open for lunch in the summer, and also a public restroom at the edge of the main parking lot. Many of the stores were closed when we visited in May. The drive up and back were also spectacular.

Superlative views!
May 2019 • Couples
This was an absolutely amazing experience and one we would highly recommend. We were driving from Ascoli Piceno to Navelli to watch Stage 7 of the Giro d'Italia. The best part of the drive was at the end when we went over the very top of the mountain, which we have since found out was along the highest road in the Gran Sasso National Park and one of the highest in all of Italy. The snow-capped mountains were extraordinarily beautiful and seemed to completely surround us. The worst part of the journey was the very curved roads and the speeds at which some of the very long semi-trailers travel around them. This can be very dangerous for the unsuspecting driver and we would suggest hooting at the start of very sharp curves. Incredibly, there were some bike riders attempting the almost impossible climb!

Only ways on Corno Grande has got good marks if you would like to go Karol Wojtyla Papa 2 WAY it is very dificult to find THE marks ON a start. The best place to start all trips is Campo Imperatore but you need to rememmber that hotel is closed.

Glorious for biking
May 2017 • Friends
Not only do the mountains feel special, the roads to get up there are made for biking. They were in good condition with very little traffic. It is an adventure. Enjoy the views and as always pay attention. Beware gravel on the curves, animals on the road and remember poo is like mud!

We drove through the National Park on our way from Santo Stefano di Sessiano to Castelli. We saw very few other vehicles on our way there or back, but we did see hundreds of cows, some of which were on the road. We were glad to have the road to ourselves so that we could slow down and take in the stunning scenery of high plains and jagged peaks. It was also good to have lots of room on the road to drive around the mammoth potholes we found on the east side going down toward Castelli. Just keep your eyes on the road and take your time driving. It is a great experience!

Superb scenery for hiking
Sep 2015 • Couples
We did the day hike up to Corne Grande in the Gran Sasso national park (following the cicerone hiking guide book of Abruzzo). Stunning scenery but not an easy hike. You reach 2,900 m and the last couple of a hundred are quite a scramble. But well worth it. It took us 7 hours to do the hike starting at the Campo Imperature hotel (the book
has it down as a 6 hour hike but I am
slower than average). The drive up there from Assergi is also beautiful so even if not hiking, it's worth a trip.

Take a trip into the past!
Sep 2013 • Friends
We love this National Park and visit annually. The drive into the park goes above the tree line and although high into the mountains, you drive along a lovely green rolling plateau dotted with sheep, horses and cows. Many times the animals are in the road. You can hear the cowbells and watch the shepherds with the sheep. Take a picnic lunch. There are 3 local medieval towns in the area to drive through if you have a full day. Enjoy the Italy that many fail to see!

really enjoyed the trip there/back and just being there. Flowers were beautiful. Walking is very nice and views are spectacular. Would definitely recommend and it will give you a better perspective of the whole area, which is not all about beaches
