While in Bucharest was cold and cloudy, we decided to skip this weather and to go for some days in Pescara, Italy. We actually choose the destination, because it is the only region of Italy not mapped yet 🙂
And yes, we mapped it, by driving almost 800 km in 3 days 🙂
We arrived in Pescara , but we stayed in the nearby Montesilvano at a nice Airbnb, and with our Fiat 500 rented car , on the next day we discovered the San Benedetto del Tronto, Ascoli Piceno, and Teramo. We absolutely loved the old town of Ascoli Piceno, especially the Piazza del Popolo and the nice architecture of the buildings and churches in the area.
Here is the video of our first day:
The next day, we decided to stay close to the sea so we skipped the highway and we drove next to the sea to the southern area of Parco Nationale del Gargano. There we discovered a very beautiful scenery and the lovely and enchanting city of Vieste. In Vieste we had the best pizza of this trip, from a small, local old pizzeria , followed by this romantic sunset and then a short trip to our accommodation for the night in Foggia.
2nd-day video here:
We started the next day with a proper espresso & cornetto Italian breakfast followed by a short walk in the center of Foggia. Then, we followed the road close to the sea until Pescara. In Pescara, we discovered a lively city with a nice central shopping area and around 6 pm we wore already looking for a restaurant to eat. After we realized that the Italians usually dine after 8 pm, we ended up buying food from the supermarket and had a lovely dinner at home with our Airbnb hosts. In the end, we had another great day in Italy!
Back to airport and then home, but we promise we will be back in Italy sooner than you think 🙂
