Summary: Abruzzo is best known as a region of national parks and as a mountainous region, especially for its peaks that are the highest in the Apennine system.

Yet Abruzzo is also a sea region, with 133 kilometers of coastline rich in extraordinary landscapes very different from each other and recalling the oceanic coasts of Scotland or Portugal. It is in this extraordinary scenery that we can find the wonderful TRABOCCO. A TRABOCCO is an ancient and typical fishing machine, which is frequently easy to spot on the Abruzzo coastline and it has become a symbol of it.

Today, after a period of lacking use TRABOCCHI (plural of Trabocco) are back in the spotlight. Many TRABOCCHI have been converted into restaurants where you can enjoy a fabulous culinary experience literally floating on the sea; starting with the appetizers generally consist of squid, octopus, shrimp, mussels, clams, then as a first course you can generally have often prepared homemade pasta with seafood. Among the main courses stand out roasts and mixed fried fish (mullet, cod, squid, scampi). But the true King of all the local cuisine is the “BRODETTO“, which is a soup of local fish cooked in an earthenware pot with plenty of extra virgin olive oil and fresh tomatoes….YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THAT!!!
