One of the most sparsely populated and mountainous regions of Italy, Abruzzo offers the best of the Adriatic Coast and the interior National Parks in a landscape that has remained untouched for centuries.  Warm and dry on the seaside, this renaissance area also features an alpine climate at the summits of Como Grande and Gran Sasso.  Here, between sea and peaks, GreatCycling takes riders on tour route of sheer wonderment through ancient forests and castle estates high in the sky, winding down to miles of sun-drenched beaches and rock formations that cling to the coast.
