Loreto Aprutino, Abruzzo, Italy

Abruzzo is possibly not the most well known of Italian regions.  When you see images of the area though, you start to wonder just why it is not up there with the likes of Tuscany.

For some though, Abruzzo’s relative anonymity is a good thing.  You might like to think of Abruzzo as being ‘off the beaten track’ Italy, and for some, this may appeal.  Note too that skiing is possible in this Italian region, mainly in the area around Roccaraso, of which I have already written.

Today’s Images of Italy photo is of a lovely looking little Italian village which clings to a hillside in Abruzzo called Loreto Aprutino.  The image is from a new blog called Abruzzo notes.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

With thanks to the as yet anonymous author of Abruzzo Notes for having given me permission to use this lovely image of an enchanting Italian village.

The Abruzzo Notes blog is still evolving, but plenty of images of Abruzzo are available for browsing within the Abruzzo Note’s photo gallery.

I came across Abruzzo Notes because whoever is behind the site mentioned and linked to my November 2007 post on southern Italian ski resort Roccasraso.  And when I saw a few of the photos there, I thought ‘I’d love to use a few of these!’.

Best of luck to Abruzzo Notes and I hope to see the site expand into a wealth of information about this lovely Italian region.
