“Park in Abruzzo tops Umbria”
Review of Gran Sasso

Gran Sasso
Ranked #30 of 2,496 things to do in Abruzzo
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 15 June 2015

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.

We visited the ski resort on Gran Sasso with family on our visit in April. We took the ski lift to the top, and even though it was spring, people were still skiing, and the snow was abundant. Of course, being tourists, we went in sneakers and trudged through the snow to climb to the very top to ring the bell near the Madonna and leave our personal items there. It was truly fun, and if I were a ski enthusiast, it would have been even better. The part that was the most amazing for us was the beautiful view from the top. Pictures can not do it justice, and this mountain is so majestic,and so breathtaking. This is a must see for all travelers in the area.

Really enjoyed both the journey to/from Gran Sasso and the experience of walking there. The wild flowers were so beautiful, all in flower at the same time, I feel privileged to have had the good fortune to visit at this time. When thinking to go there I did not envisage the scale or magnificence of the mountains in this region. This mountain re-wrote my whole impression of the area... and no mosquitoes up there either!

This mountain area (or plateau) has something for everyone. Either if you like mountaineering, hiking or just barbecuing this place definitely has something for everyone. Easy accessible by car
