A really good time at Vasto. Nice sunshine and relaxed atmosphere. The view from the belleveder is one to die for. Also the narrow streets are mostly well kept and are a sight to treasure with their authentic atmosphere. Highly recommend to visit if you...More

A walk right into the past. Beautifully laid out and just continue down the road to a magnificent view. Of the gulf. Turn back along the same way you came in and get a different perspective of the way back to the main piazza. Take...More

We stayed in the old city and so glad we did. Vasto has a number of piazzas that flow into one another. At night these piazzas come alive, full of people walking, playing, eating or just taking in the fabulous ambience. We loved it!

I came here for a music festival and was blown away by the beauty of the historical center which was well-kept, clean, charming, and the people were lovely too. Close to beautiful beaches as well. Overlooked by lots of tourists, yet worth the trip!

It is fun to get lost among all of the little alleyways. We found several interesting shops - jewlery, clothing, artwork. Don't worry about getting totally lost -- the sea is easy to find, just go downhill. And once you find the walkway along the...More

This gem of a place nestled at the top of a hill overlooking a stunning bay of Vasto Marina. An abundance of quality restaurants is readily available to you. But the real find is the old, Historic Italy; cobbled streets, tiny walkways, renovated houses mixed...More

This coastal Adriatic city is a delightful surprise. The city is filled with history. It is actually divided into a city scape which sits atop looking over the Adriatic city and on clear days you can see the Tremiti Islands. Filled with wonderful small shops,...More
