In the land of sea and mountain, A Casa di Ezio offers spectacular scenery and cuisine
Most everyone is familiar with the beauty of Tuscany… but still many are yet unfamiliar with the gem that is Abruzzo. Situated in the central part of Italy, Abruzzo is less than 50 miles due east of Rome on the Adriatic Sea, and offers a taste of the unspoiled Italy.
The somewhat remote Abruzzo region is often overlooked by tourists. It has spectacular natural scenery, medieval castles and villages, monasteries, and Roman ruins. Two-thirds of the Abruzzo’s land is mountainous with the rest being hills and coast. A third of the region is designated as national or regional parkland. Bordering regions are the Marche to the north, Lazio to the west, Molise to the south, and the Adriatic Sea to the east.
Much of the Abruzzo region is in national or regional parks, and you can enjoy everything from winter skiing to beach relaxation.
While the locals of every region in Italy believe their cuisine is the best… and rightfully so for them to believe… the Italian organization Confesercenti led research in 2013 which indicated Abruzzo as the best region where to eat in Italy according to reviews of foreign tourists and ratings.
The Abruzzo cuisine landscape is diverse, stretching from the country land to the sea. And if you would like to partake in the flavours of these exceptional regional delights, learn how to get and cook them yourself, all while enjoying the stunning natural beauty that is Abruzzo… than you must book a stay and Italian cooking school experience with A Casa di Ezio.
