Now we are in the Abruzzi and in the Gran Sasso National Park – surrounded by snowcovered mountains. We haven’t expected this in the middle of Italy!
It is too cold to stay overnight up here. Outside of Aquila we find a nice place. The damage of the earthquake from 2009 is still visible, many houses are in scaffolding.
Because the weather has decided for a rainy day it doesn’t make sense to drive around exploring the mountains.
