Marvelous beach! Authentic Italian old city!
Old City Charm, Beautiful Beaches, and Fun Day Trips
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,...more

Situated in the square near the cathedral, this gelateria receives many hot-customers who wish for some cold drink or ice cream. There is some food there available as well. The interior design of this gelateria tells the story of famous Italian comic writer..more
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:)
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...:)
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...
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
Have you ever wished to buy a Gucci watch on the beach? Here you have a possibility:) We call these venders "gucci gucci" as that's what they say when come close to the tourists on the beach.
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...more
