CHIETI

Legends aside, Chieti was an important center during the Italic and Roman times and even today around the city it is possible to visit the remains of an amphitheater and the Roman Temples of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva.

 

It is impossible to sume in few lines all you can see around the city: a walk along the elegant corso Marruccino is like walking through history, among sumptuous palaces and churches full of art, maybe discovering some unexpected glimpses into an alley or a square.
From the Cathedral of San Giustino, which stands out since 1069, we suggest you go to the Marrucino Theater, an architectural jewel of the 19th century, and after that visiting the National Archaeological Museum, in the lush park of Villa Frigerj.
Inside the Villa you can find some of the most important artifacts of Abruzzo history, starting from the Warrior of Capestrano that looks proudly towards the horizon since the sixth century a. C.

 

Chieti is also known for its cultural life and its traditions: a respectable theater season and the rituals of Venerdì Santo, with one of the most suggestive processions of Abruzzo and Central Italy. These are just some of the reasons to visit our city.
The presence of the Gabriele D’Annunzio University campus also makes it a lively and stimulating city, with its medical centre, famous around the world.

THE DOOR

OF ABRUZZO

 

Casa Marzapane is just the first step before starting to discover a special region like Abruzzo. Thanks to the centrality of Chieti, in fact, you can easily and quickly reach the most beautiful corners of the region.
Climbing the Majella for a hike or reach the golden beaches of the Adriatic? You can choose and it won’t be easy ! But don’t worry, the first one doesn’t exclude the other. Since in less than an hour you can easily pass from the Majeletta 1620 meters, to the nearest beaches. Along the way you can discover enchanting villages, rolling hills cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, taking a break to explore a hermitage or a gorge nestled in the mountain.

And after a long walk, sitting at the table will be the beginning of another journey: the one in a culinary tradition that combines the countryside with the sea, the north to the south, made of genuine flavors and traditions that are also reinvented, as some of the most important restaurants in the region.

In Abruzzo, Nature is still the greatest wonder, but this is not due to the great gastronomic, oenological and cultural heritage. We will be happy to guide and advise you in the discovery of this great little world in which we grew up and we love to tell proudly, made of simple and authentic things.
