    Visit the harbour

    by BurgerQueen Written Sep 3, 2014

    Termoli harbour is divided into two areas: one for fishing boats and one for touristic boats. Since the harbour is close to the city center, you can plan this activity as after-dinner stroll, to get out of the city crowd. Daily tours to the Tremiti Islands start from here.
    Some bars in the fishermen area are are too much expensive, ask for prices before taking a seat!

    by BurgerQueen Written Sep 3, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Besises Termoli Old Town, a modern city center with fashion shops and bars is located just outside the walls. The modern city centre is very crowded at night, and it is pedestrian area in summertime. Shops are open till late as well as bars, ice cream shops and restaurants. Moreover, at summertime Termoli is very active and events takes place every night, including shows for children such as puppets shows.

    Take a walk around the walls

    by BurgerQueen Written Sep 3, 2014

    I definitely suggest a walk around the walls of the old town. The promenade can be accessed either form the harbour or from the Lungomare Colombo; it offers stunning views of the sea, and you will be surprised to see the walls from a different perspective.
    This promenade passes by a couple of fishermen old-style houses, called "Trabucchi". These houses are typical of the area; we have seen them in Puglia too ( see my Vieste page) and allow fishermen to fish without a boat: they put a net in the sea and attract fishes with a light. You can see them fishing at night.

    Visit Termoli old town

    by BurgerQueen Written Sep 3, 2014

    Termoli is an ancient city, it was originally built inside the tall defensive walls equipped with guard towers to protect people from sea attacks. Nowadays, Termoli is a big city made up of a new, big area but still preserving the old town as inhabited area. I definitely suggest strolling around the small ancient pedestrian streets of the old town, some of them are very pitoresque. You can also enjoy the sea from the top of the walls, above all at sunset: it is very romantic and impressive in any case.
    The biggest guard tower is sometimes open for art exhibitions, unfortunately we did not have the chance to visit it.
    Termoli old town can be very crowded at night, I suggest visiting it at daytime, for example it can be a good shelter when the weather is windy!

    Beach life

    by BurgerQueen Written Sep 1, 2014

    Termoli is a nice city to visit, the good news is that you can combine your visit with some beach life. The sea here is clean, it has been awarded the European Blue Flag for several years, meaning the water quality is high. The sea floor enters the sea smoothly, which makes it perfect for children to play and to get familiar to salted water and waves. The sand is like flour, wondeful!
    Termoli offers some free beaches and some paying beaches with beach umbrellas and beach chairs, which makes your life easier if you have babies. Bars and small restaurants are avallable on the beaches so you can also have a light lunch close to the sea.

    Visit the castle of Termoli

    by satara Written Dec 19, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've heard from local people that this castle is called "Castello Svezzio" (or similar), because it was built (or maybe rebuild) by Swedish king who arrived in Termoli and occupied it and other places around.. Sounds really interesting..
    In the castle there is a museum and from time to time they have some visiting exhibitions there - of photography, of bonsai trees etc.

    It is the nicest place in the whole city.. I loved walking there and every day and night finding the new little roads, stairs, houses, exits.. It took me quite a long time to get to know the place and be sure where exactly I am standing and where the street I am going will take me..:)
