Chieti & Costa dei Trabocchi

The ‘trabocchi’, houses perched on stilts described by Gabriele D’Annunzio, the poet from Pescara, as “enormous spiders”, have clung to the rocks for hundreds of years. At a glance, they remind us of the unparalleled charm of the stories that are hidden within the intertwining of cables and buckets.
Clustered along the section of coast between Ortona and Vasto, these wooden platforms jut into the Adriatic Sea and provide an alternative to fishing boats: a system of pulleys drops the nets into the water and every day returns their catch. The seafood is then freshly cooked for guests welcomed at a few tables along the seafront. Among the many ‘trabocchi’ that dot the coast, it’s worth mentioning Punta Cavalluccio, Pesce Palombo and Punta Punciosa at Fossacesia; Valle Grotte and Punta Tufano at San Vito Chietino, where the refurbished structures of the Trabocco Turchino stand out; and the Trabocco Cungarelle at Vasto.

From the well-equipped beaches, it is well worth going inland to enjoy Chieti, the Roman city of Teate, and its monuments that proclaim its ancient history. Don’t miss Lanciano and the many other inland villages.
