Abruzzo mountains in Italy

The spectacular Gran Sasso mountains, the highest of the Apennine peaks, and the Campo Imperatore, a vast, high mountain plateau sometimes called Italy's "little Tibet" are frequent film and television backdrop. The area is nowadays part of the National Park of the Gran Sasso and Laga, founded in 1992, the second in Italy for width, with mountains all over 2000 meters At the shadow of the Corno Grande, the Gran Sasso's highest peak, lies an hotel where Mussolini was imprisoned in 1943 before being rescued by the Germans.

Campo Imperatore is a plateau at the average height of 1800 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Gran Sasso, offers an extremely valuable patrimony of fauna and vegetation.
