There's little in the way of public transport here, so hiring a car is near enough essential - see our car rental recommendations..
Abruzzo is a year-round destination, but we'd recommend visiting in the spring (particularly early-mid May when the wild cherry is blossoming) or early summer (late May-June) when the alpine and subalpine flowers are in bloom. But midsummer and autumn are also lovely. It is several degrees cooler than Rome up here, and can be very snowy in winter - though central heating and (in some rooms) working fireplaces keep the houses cosy.
