Monte Velino: The Route Rome to Pescara


On the road from Rome to Pescara
Fantastic mountain-views from a gas station

The Appenines, pretty impressing mountains running through Italy from north to south. If you drive from Rome to Pescara (on the Adriatic Sea) you will pass this place about halfway on your route. A gas-station and pizza-joint perfectly located for a view of Monte Velino. And a slice of pizza of course. This joint has pretty good pizza. This the A25, but you could also take the northern path around L’Aquila on A24. Then you will pass under the Gran Sasso massive in a very long tunnel. And under Campo Imperatore, where Mussolini once was held prisoned… If you drive the A24 instead you will pass L’Aquila and Teramo and reach the Adriatic sea north of Pescara, at Giulianova. © Peter Lindberg 2013
