     Attractions 


Penne is one of the most important towns in the province of Pescara,
a reference point for the Vestina area. Thanks to its strategic
geographical position, it is the ideal place for all types of stays:
both in the summer and the winter since, with a drive of just 40
minutes, it is possible to reach the mountains where, in the summer,
there are beautiful walks and, in the winter, equipped ski slopes on
the peaks. In addition to this, there are also the sunny seaside
resorts with their crystal clear waters for bathing.

The town of Penne is defined as the ‘town of bricks’ due to its
having been built almost entirely in cotto terracotta on the tops of
four hills. On two of which the medieval centre still rises between
the valleys of the Tavo and Fino rivers, amid a landscape of green
hills and oak woods. To the west, the mountain ridge of the Apennines
are visible just a few kilometres away.

The ancient town centre is well preserved, a maze of narrow, cobbled,
alleys, surrounded by 15th century walls. The main access to the town
is particularly picturesque, through the S. Francesco gate with its
decorated frontispiece, and is the work of De Sio. Penne's churches
include the 12th century Santa Maria, and the Duomo, which now houses
the Diocese Museum including a crypt dating from the 8th century. The
town has a lively festival at the end of August each year, and there
is a market every saturday morning. You will find that the town has a
warm and very friendly atmosphere.


A number of artistic-artisan workshops are active in the town, with
the production of Pennesi majolica earthenware's, serigraph prints,
embroideries, traditional weavings, jewellery, wrought iron and
copper work and fine cabinet making.

Penne also represents a point of access to the Gran Sasso National
Park through the Lake of Penne Nature Reserve, a WWF oasis where it
is possible to participate in guided visits. This oasis includes a
centre for environmental education, a nature trail with observation
huts for those interested in the avifauna, an animal first-aid
centre, an artisan workshop, a botanical garden, a naturalistic
museum, two aquariums and a centre where otters are bred.

As soon as you leave the town you are into beautiful countryside,
which is ideal for those who enjoy walking. An enjoyable way to spend
a day (or half day), is to join one of the guided walks which leave
from Penne, accompanied by an experienced guide. Walks available
include: The Calderone Glacier, The Monastery of San
Bartolomeo, "Little Tibet" & Spectacular Majella Gorges.

The nearby resort of Pescara has fantastic shopping and seafood
restaurants. A 35 minute drive takes you to Montesilvao with its
lovely beach. There is also Pineto, a resort known for its pine
woods. The Passo Lanciano ski resort is approx 45 mins drive

The garage is only suitable for motorbikes due to the narrow street
outside. Free public parking is available nearby.
