I am planning our first trip to Italy in March. We plan on retiring to the region in a few years. We will be flying into Milan and renting a car and will fly out of Rome.
We plan on spending a few days in the Cinque Terre and then making our way over to the Abruzzo region, before driving to Rome. We want to spend about 1week exploring the Abruzzo region. We are more interested in the areas between the mountains and the coast. Probably driving along A24 and A25 loops. We are looking to buy an old farmhouse, so would like to visit a few just to get an idea of the market. Would like to be in the country, but close to a small town. Any suggestions ??
We are also planning on visiting a WWOOF. (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms)
We welcome any suggestions on routes to take. My one concern is driving over the mountains in March. What are the chances of having snow-covered roads.??? Are there any roads we should avoid.??
