Let yourself be surprised by the wild and breathtaking scenery of the Gran Sasso National Park, in Abruzzo, the largest naturalistic area in Europe and the true green heart of the Mediterranean. Nova Eroica Gran Sasso is the new and unprecedented all-road event in the heart of the Italian Apennines, with routes that wind through valleys and plateaus, on the ancient "tratturi" the dirt roads used since ancient times for the transhumance of flocks. A unique opportunity to discover an area rich in nature and history on your modern bike and in the name of adventure, in pure Eroica style.

The uncontaminated landscape of the Gran Sasso is the setting for an unparalleled experience.

On the ancient white roads of transhumance you can enjoy a constantly changing landscape, from the green valleys covered with woods you go up to the sources, pastoral drinking troughs where fresh water gushes out, between the arid rocky contours of the highest peaks of the Apennines.

Further downstream, the villages of the Gran Sasso Park tell us about places and faces rich in history: Castel del Monte, Castelvecchio Calvisio, Barisciano, Calascio with its fortress, Santo Stefano di Sessanio, up to the majestic plain of Campo Imperatore and beyond 2,000 meters of the Pantani peak.
