Rocca di Cambio is a small mountain town, located in the northern side of the Altopiano delle Rocche, in the Sirente-Velino's regional park, in L'Aquila's department, about 25 km from the main city. With its 1434 meters over the sea level, it's the Appennino's higher town. A town that deserves to be known for traditions, habits, history and for its food's unmistakable taste. Rocca di Cambio it's a famous tourist center for winter sports having in its own territory the Campo Felice ski station. The town has been a well-known tourist resort since medieval times and still preserves its fine parish church of the Annunciazione (16th c.) and the Romanesque abbey of Santa Lucia (13th c.), situated a little way from the town centre and containing 16th-c. frescoes.
Rocca di Cambio is made even more charming by the large choice of accommodation facilities on offer.
Campo Felice situated in the heart of the Apennines, is one of the most famous skiing locations in the Appenino Centrale area. It is at the centre of an area with heights, all of more than 2000 metres. It is enough to climb to the summit of Monte Rotondo to understand just how generously nature has endowed Campo Felice. A single glance can scan in one large sweep the Gran Sasso, the Sirente, the Velino, the Duchessa and the Maiella. The panorama is truly breathtaking. There are, besides, many advantages the location can offer: a magical atmosphere, the most modern ski-lift systems and more than 30 kilometres of pistes with all grades of difficulty, always well maintained and with good snow cover.
The geographical formations are conducive to winter sports, even in foggy conditions, as all the tracks converge on a spacious plateau, while should the skies not be forthcoming, there is the latest, fully automatic system which will take over and ensure snow cover for over 12 km of slopes. Remember, as well, that Campo Felice also offers two renowned skiing schools and three ski clubs which are amongst the most important in Italy.
