Termoli Things to Do

  • Trabucco!

    For all who loves fishing - you can't miss this lesson about fishing possibilities. It's an old tradition in Termoli to fish using trabucco.. and you can get there fresh fish, fresh seashells every evening.. except of the periods when fishing is forbidden;)

  • Il duomo

    The cathedral of Termoli is a home for the saint Basso - the saint of all sailors and sea lovers.. for the festival of San Basso check my travelogues.

  • Visit the castle of Termoli

    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,...

  • Beer pub

    It looked like a nice white house with some grapewine growing outside the walls.. but that's a look only at day time.At night this place was full of young people - on the first floor, on the second floor, on the balcony and all seemed to enjoy their time there very much;)

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The term of nightlife in Termoli has quite an interesting aspect - when it gets dark, people come out of their homes and make a big get-together in the middle of the streets.. old and young...! and if car drivers want to go through the street - it's their own problem:)

    Street traffic in Termoli

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As usual in Italy the driving is really crazy in Termoli, the problems with parking, high traffic... eh... The best way to get around is by little motorcycle, because in a car you stay stucked in a traffic for long time..
    There is some public transportation (buses) available as well. In some places of city there is a yellow terminal where it's said you can call for the bus there and wait until it comes and takes you where you want to go... haven't seen that terminal working though...:)

    il Faro

    by satara Written Dec 19, 2003

    There are lots of various shops in the city, many of them selling the famous brand names, but if you are looking for the hand-made crafts better search for them in little souvenir shops like "Il Faro" in the old town near the castle of Termoli.

    What to buy: Lots of interesting collars made of stones, seashells...

Termoli Local Customs

  • Posters for passed away

    I haven't seen anything like this in any other country (except Greece) - on the walls of houses Italians put a poster saying about the death of their beloved people.. So everyone in the neighbourhood knows what happened and can express their condolences to the family.

  • Lotto!!

    Imagine - we are in a hurry going home for lunch (for those who don't know, in Italy food is a religion and you can't be late for eating!), lots of traffic in the streets and suddenly we stop in front of little shop selling lotto tickets..!!! ah... we can't miss lotto even we miss lunch!!!

    more
  • Laundry for everyone to see

    I have seen that only in the movies.. But it's true - they put their laundry down in the street, so tourists must be careful not to stumble over them;)

Termoli Off The Beaten Path

  • The port of Termoli

    The smell of freshly caught fish, the sound of crying seagulls..I liked to come there to watch the boats, the people preparing to leave the coast, returning from fishing, waiting to buy various "frutti di mare".

  • Cactus in the window

    Look what a little but lovely house window I have found in the old town!! Actually I am not very impressed by Italian windows, they keep them always closed.. I loved the Greek windows much more, but this little one was cute enough to dedicate for it a whole photo..:)

  • Flowery corner

    One of many nice exploration results in the old town. The house near the cathedral and Guiness beer pub.

Termoli Favorites

  • Citta vecchia - old town

    Narrow shiny streets.. During the day time when everyone is sleeping after lunch and because it's too hot to go outside, you can listen only to your steps on stone paved streets...

  • Citta vecchia

    I especially loved the old town of this city. It is situated in a very small place on a hill surrounded by defence wall and old castle, guarding the town from intruders. The streets there are so narrow and full of hanging laundry:) I loved to have a walk there in the evenings, when local people go out of their homes, open the doors, take the...
