Italian coast to coast

A one day ride through Central Italy with my Transalp XL 700 V



Uploaded with ImageShack.us


I leave Rome early in the morning heading the Adriatic sea, I don’t have any schedule but I want to drive through the Campo Imperatore region. Leaving the highway at l’ Aquila the first stop is in the village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, about 120 inhabitants in the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Reserve. Santo Stefano di Sessanio, named “one of the most beautiful italian villages” is located at 1250 m above the sea level.

Rocca Calascio

I get close to Calascio so that I can see the Calascio fortress, it’s actually the highest italian fortress, built at 1460 m above the sea level.

Atri

Heading East I stop in Atri to visit the town and the local badlands (not sure "badlands" is the right translation). Atri is a town that counts about 11000 inhabitants in the Teramo province.

Very nice; some lovely scenery and architecture there. I test rode a 700 when they first came out and was impressed with it.
