L'Aquila is a city and comune of central Italy, on the Aternoriver.
It lies on a hill in the wide valley of the Aterno, surrounded by mountains on all sides, the Gran Sasso d'Italia being conspicuous on the north-east.
Although less than two hours' drive from Rome, the city (laid out within medieval walls) has not yet been heavily affected by foreign tourism.Though L'Aquila is a popular summer resort, it is cold and windy in winter.
