Full description
Explore Abruzzo and discover its popular historical sites with the help of a local guide. Experience the film "Ladyhawke" as you visit the movie's filming locations, too. After meeting your guide, embark on a journey to the National Park of Gran Sasso and the Laga montains through the ancient route of Tratturo Magno. Soon, you'll arrive at Campo Imperatore, which is also called little Tibet because of its moon landscape. Stop by and take memorable photos at the high plain at 1800 meters above sea level. Afterwards, head over to the Castle of Rocca Calascio, which dates back to the year 1380 and is also one of the shooting locations for the movie "Ladyhawke." Next is an optional lunch at a local restaurant in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, one of the most beautiful Medici-owned villages in Italy. Finally, go on a guided tour of the village and see the traditional arts and crafts shops where you can buy authentic Italian products like saffron from L'Aquila, the red gold, local lentils, and traditional cheese, honey, and jam. Once you're done exploring, your guide will take you back to your preferred drop-off point.
