Abruzzo

 

One of Abruzzi’s main towns is L’Aquila, founded in 1242. The town is overlooked by the Gran Sasso mountain, which stands within the national park of the same name. L’Aquila boasts two stunning churches, attractive shops, a lively marketplace and convivial cafés. Just south of here, Sulmona is another historic town, surrounded by mountains. Gold jewelry and sugar almonds are the local specialties, and they have bought much prosperity to the town, whose old center features several palaces. Bominaco, in the east of the region, is a small village distinguished by its two magnificent churches. San Pellegrino features beautiful frescoes and an unusual 13th century calendar, whilst Santa Maria dell’Assunta contains exquisite carvings.

Abruzzi’s coastline is studded with chic resorts, perfect for relaxing on the palm-fringed beaches. The beguiling town of Atri is located just 10 kilometers inland, whilst the distinguished city of Vasto overlooks one of the most popular resorts on the coast, Vasto Marina. There is a lot to see in Vasto itself, whilst the resort is focused around its long sandy beach.

Whether it is a beautiful beach, breathtaking mountain scenery or a historic Italian town that you would like to have as the backdrop for your wedding photographs, you have the choice in Abruzzi – a lovely region of Italy in which to celebrate your marriage.
