When planning your trip to Italy, your itinerary can become jam-packed quite quickly. With so much to see, such as landmarks like the Colosseum and The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and famous cities like Rome, Venice and Florence, why would someone choose to visit a region that is practically unheard of by tourists standards?
The reason someone might choose to visit Abruzzo is the very reason why Italian Provincial Tours was born. Since we are completely obsessed with Italy, we speak to many people about their Italian travel experiences. Predictably, everyone romances about their ride in a gondola and their cruise to Capri, and rightfully so! But their conversation is almost always followed up by: “Next time though, we would like to get off the beaten track and see what the rest of Italy is like!”
Some other travellers are naturally intrepid and seek an authentic cultural experience, regardless of their previous travelling experience.
This is why we started Italian Provincial Tours. Our desire is to provide travellers the opportunity to leave the beaten path behind and to experience the “real Italy”, and if you want to see the “real Italy” you need to see Abruzzo!
Abruzzo is Italy’s undiscovered gem! Even the tourists are Italian! Why do Italian’s holiday in Abruzzo? Put simply, its because it’s authentic, serene and stunning. With the mountains and the coast within a 30 minute drive, it makes for some spectacular and unanticipated scenery. It’s a foodies heaven with no painful “menus for tourists”. You won’t miss any of Italy’s hallmarks either, such as quaint ancient villages, wineries, artisan producers, history and arts, and unforgettable dining experiences.
We are convinced that you will fall in love with Abruzzo’s rustic charm, just like we have!
