We drove high up in to the Abruzzo National Park, heading all the while to Lago Scanno where we had planned to stay for one day (and in hindsight I would have loved to stay longer …. so I guess we will have to head back!). We drove over the ‘Godi Pass’ which was so beautiful and evocative of high pastures in the Swiss Alps.
Lago Scanno was a beautiful green blue lake and not so very big. It also evoked memories of Swiss alpine lakes and this lake was very popular with Italian holiday makers. Just as we were leaving to head to Gran Sasso, people were taking to thesse very clean waters in their bathers or choosing a pedalo.
