What to expect

You will leave on board a private vehicle with an escort to discover the most evocative villages on the slopes of the Gran Sasso.

Santo Stefano di Sessanio is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, a fortified inhabited center of medieval origin that still preserves its beauty and characteristic houses of that time. Unfortunately, the earthquake in 2009 has compromised the old Medicean tower, which is however about to be rebuilt; in the sixteenth century, the village belonged to the Medici family who bought the barony.

The castle of Rocca Calascio is of the same era and is considered one of the 15 most beautiful castles in the world by the National Geographic; it can be reached in 20 minutes on foot from the town of Calascio via a very easy path.

Immerse yourself in the wonderful nature on the slopes of the Gran Sasso for a unique tour to discover wonderful medieval villages!
