Lady's Italy Explorations

Discover Scanno in Abruzzo with Lady

This is a special week for Abruzzo. This is the Abruzzo Open Day Week. Until 4 of June, there are many places to visit and plenty of activities to do in the whole territory.

Not far from Rome, Abruzzo is known as “the greenest region in Europe” as one-third of its territory is set aside as national parks and protected nature reserves: three national parks, one regional park, and thirty-eight protected nature reserves.

Abruzzo is also the regione where my family comes from and has always a special place in my life.

This time I decided to visit once again the beautiful town of Scanno,  in the Sagittario Valley and encircled by the Majella mountains.

If you want to go to visit Scanno, remember that the town elevation is 1.050 m so, even in Summer, it’s better to not forget a jacket

You will be surprised by the alleys of Scanno,

When in Scanno, you can also enjoy the quietness of the lake.
