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!

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

Many shops and restaurants. Just take your time and wander around. Get lost. You will have fun exploring the center of this old city.

The historic center of Vasto has Roman origins and has kept many traces of its medieval and later eras. In our visit we first stopped to admire Piazza Rossetti where you have the Caldoresco Castle, ruins of a past era, nice buildings and a monument...More
