Vasto (Abruzzo)

Vasto is a town and comune on the Adriatic coast of the Province of Chieti, in southern Abruzzo. The old part of the town features a number of buildings and churches dating from the 12th-18th centuries, including: Vasto Cathedral, Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, with a quite tall bell tower, Castello Caldoresco, D'Avalos Palace and the Musei Civici. Below the hill on which the town is located, the beach resort town of Marina di Vasto offers a large sandy beach and several hotels and other facilities. Further north the coast becomes rocky and features interesting pebble and stone beaches and coves, as well as the typical "trabocchi", typical wooden fishing machines of the Southern Abruzzo coast. Amongst the natural areas, also featuring a number of sandy and rocky beaches, is the protected natural area of the Riserva Naturale di Punta Aderci.

@tesoro2010 asks:

Hello Everyone.  I currently live in Southern California and next year, I'm preparing to go to Ripa Teatina, Chieti, the home of my Grandmother's family and would like to start conversing with someone living there.  Is there anyone out there who would like to connect, please?

@taranis asks:

Ciao a tutti di nuovo.

Just on to say thanks to all contributors answering questions, particularly Modicassa and Ugo.
