Holidays in Francavilla al Mare will be a good chance to discover Abruzzo with its naturalistic beauties, culinary excellence, mystic places, hidden hermitages at the foot of Majella and Coast of Trabocchi.
Pescara is easily to reach from Hotel San Marco, it is the newest among provinces in Abruzzo and here modernism cohabits with past thanks to famous people like Gabriele D’Annunzio.
In the city there are the so-called itineraries of D’Annunzio: the house-museum of the poet, in the old city, between Manthonè and Caserme Road, where nowadays there are a lot of bars, resaturants and pubs; pinewood of D’Annunzio, the biggest green area in the city, that was an inspiration to the poet; the Aurum, a cultural centre for the artistic innovations.
On the coast, instead, Francavilla is the beginning of a striking part of the Adriatic coast, where there are Trabocchi, stilts used by the fishermen to lower nets into the sea and fish without getting away from the coast.
Trabocchi are one of the major tourist attractions of the region, so Abruzzo promoted the recovery and preservation from 1994.
From the sea to the mountain, Majella Park is perfect to stay outdoor in the nature. There are many paths to go through both on foot and on horseback.
Among the suggestive places near Majella we mention: Avello Valley, St. Onofrio Hermitage, Morrone Mountain, Roccacaramanico, Fara San Martino Valley, San Bartolomeo Hermitage, Guardiagrele.
Just in Guardiagrele there is a funny adventure park, with tours in height between trees. In the Adventure Park of Majella there are about 130 games between the trees, as walkways, bridges, Tyrolean tunnels.
