Campo Imperatore, nicknamed "Little Tibet", is a must for motorcyclists, just two hours from Rome. This plateau, the largest in Italy, offers breathtaking scenery that will leave a lasting impression. Accessible in a variety of ways, including from Assergi, Castel del Monte or Farindola, every road leads to the Astronomical Observatory, offering spectacular panoramic views. Located in the Gran Sasso National Park, the plateau stretches from 1500 to 1900 meters above sea level, surrounded by lakes such as Pietranzoni and bordered by Monte Camicia.

Fonte Vetica, to the south-east, is the only wooded area, close to which are the "slaughterhouse zones", offering local specialities such as the famous Abruzzo kebabs at Ristoro Mucciante. The Gran Sasso cable car provides year-round access, although roads may be closed in winter due to snow.

Campo Imperatore is also historically notable for having been Mussolini's last "prison" in 1943, before his release. The hotel where he was held has been converted into a museum, and preserves the original furnishings. The Madonna della Neve church adds a spiritual touch to this place steeped in history. Finally, its proximity to the Marche and Umbria regions makes it an ideal base from which to explore more of central Italy.
