  • This corner of paradise that still too many disdain, too bad ! Yet fauna and flora here are among the most diverse in Italy and the idea even just the idea that we can meet with a family of bears, well. makes you feel mountain adrenaline. Nice really nice

  • It's a very rich and poorly managed area. They have the only population in the world of Marsican bear and instead of really investing, for the protection of this animal, destined to disappear, you turn your thumbs. The bear, like wolves and many other animals, is an asset to the territory and its inhabitants, move and do something, instead of being paralyzed by your political choices and short-sightedness. And the rangers make a move (or find the money to pay them), which inside the park everyone does as he pleases, tourist, inhabitant or naturalist, be it. Ps. The park is not the zoo.

  • What to say about it? It's simply the place I suppose to find the heaven. I can share a couple of pics but guys, trust me, it's not enough to describe the place. You have to visit it.
  • If you don't read or speak Italian it's super difficult to figure anything out but it was beautiful
