Leave the thriving metropolis of Rome and take a drive through the scenic Italian countryside that surrounds the city. Journey into the mountainous region of Abruzzo, with its rugged woodland and national parks. Make a stop in Sulmona and stroll along the ancient streets. Travel through vineyards to the hilltop village of Pacentro and visit the charming town, Pescocostanzo, where you can walk around the ruins of Castel Mancino. Then take the scenic route to Frascati, before making your way back to Rome.
