Getting around Vasto is quite easy. Walking is the easiest way to get around town.

See[edit]

  • Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore
  • Punta della Penna Beach

Do[edit]

  • Baia Village, Punta Penna (Take the SS16 (local highway) to the area known as Punta Penna, which is where the Port of Vasto is located. Look for signs.). Definitely the hot spot for the night-life club scene. Located on the northern outskirts of town, it about a 20 minute drive from the center of town. This uber-chic open air locale gets hopping after midnight and people party until sunrise. Many famous celebrities and DJs headline events on Saturday nights. You have to dress well to get in.

Vasto Marina - The main attraction to this touristy town is the spectacular beach. Golden sand and warm calm waves provide a relaxing setting. You can rent an umbrella and beach chairs at one of the many local establishments along the main strip or you can opt for the public beaches on either side. The beach becomes rocky as you head north up the coast.

Buy[edit]

Eat[edit]

The best restaurant in town is called "Le Cisterne". The food is spectacular and it sits right along the cliff which overlooks the coastline. It is a quick walk from the center of town located just down the steps from the public parking lot at the bottom of the Villa. A must go!
