Italy - The Apennines
Two hours east of Rome lies the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, the jewel in the crown of Italy’s park system, where around 60 Marsican brown bears (lightweight cousins of the Kodiak bear) still exist.
Spring is the best season for travelling to Abruzzo and for observing the Marsican brown bear. Roe deer, woodpeckers and owls peek out from the margins of the beech forest and colourful and rare orchids are at their best at this time of year. For wildlife lovers and adventurous souls, the mountains of the Central Apennines and the area of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park represent the wild heart of Italy.
