Ortona is one of the most beautiful seaside city in Abruzzo. Exactly from here starts the famous Costa dei Trabocchi, one of the most beautiful coastal sceneries in Italy.
Ortona's coastline stretches for about 20 km and is rich in unspoiled landscapes, fine white sandy shores and crystal-clear sea.
You can also find a historical and architectural heritage: the Aragonese Castle dominates the hill, the Orientale promenade runs along the town's coastline, the prestigious Teatro Tosti, the regal Palazzo Farnese and the Basilica dedicated to St. Thomas the Apostle, a destination for international religious tourism.
From here, moreover, one can take the wonderful "Via Verde," the bicycle and pedestrian path that runs along one of Italy's most beautiful coastal stretches: a 50-km entirely cycleable route, fascinating, very impressive and suitable for everyone.
Set between the sea and the hills, Ortona is the ideal base for setting off to discover the wonders of the coast and the more inland areas of the Abruzzo Parks.
