Wow! We totally didn't expect much from this place but it was Awesome! Take some warm clothes and good shoes. Despite hiking in September parts of the track were peppered with snow so be prepared. The weather changes quickly but it was a memorable place.

The harrowing drive - due to small twisty roads and sporty drivers- may necessitate stopping every so often to regain your spirits, but it is definitely worth it. Breathtaking vistas and grass hill sides.

Gran Sasso park is great for hiking and outdoor sports on every level. Only thing thats difficult, is finding information in other languages than italian. The hotel at campo imperatore is a good starting point for many nice hikes, including the 2912 m corno grande
