up of mountains and hills that roll down into the
coastal plain in the East. Only 50 km separates the
sea from the mountains.

Apennines, (the Gran Sasso - 9,560 feet), deep canyons
and valleys, national and regional parks, wide sandy
beaches, and an astonishing wealth of artistic and
natural beauty. Mountain villages and castles appear,
as if out of nowhere, in the middle of woods and fields.
