Rome and the Apennins

Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise: Politicians and Popes, Shepherds and Skiers, Bears and Wolves.

Since the completion of the autostrada between Rome and L’Aquila, Romans have started heading South for their holidays: there’s the enormous national park in Abruzzo, a rough and mountainous area mostly home to wild animals or they can hit the slopes at Gran Sasso, the highest of the Apennine Mountains (2912m). Molise is another geographical and cultural centre of Italy and only a short drive south. Central Italy also includes the capitol, Rome, a city steeped in legend and history, and the melancholy but green Lazio region. One can never quite shake the feeling that this is neither the North nor the South, but somewhere in between.
