We walked around in Ortona for a few ours one evening. The castle is nice to walk around with beutiful sights high up from the see. From the castello you should go up the little street into the historic village. There we found the best restaurant on the whole trip! Vico Bonelli.

Sea view and excess to downtown Ortona with great pubs and restaurants, weekly market and shopping promenade and coast view. Ortona also has a harbour with great fresh fish. I buy my fish here when staying at In Fraia Vacation Home Rental minutes away by car.

Because of tragic history of WW2, Ortona has not much to offer as 80% of city perished. Castello presents mostly the outer walls, but it offers great view on the see and many picturesque photo shoots.

We visited Castello Aragonese whilst in Abruzzo and quite honestly struggling for things to do and to fill our time. Generally, the whole region seems to lack the push of a good Minister for Tourism so many of the ‘attractions’ are poorly signposted and often difficult to find.

The location of the castle at one of Ortona, overlooking the sea to the east and countryside to the north and west makes it a great place for photos. It's free to enter, but does close over lunch. The steps unfortunately don't make it wheelchair friendly.
