A Well Travelled Path On The Adriatic Coast of Italy

10 Weeks Let Us See The Adriatic coast of Italy

Fall was a great time to head away for a brief gateway stop in London before spending 10 weeks heading down the Adriatic coast of Italy.  We revisited favourite spots and discovered the Adriatic coast regions (Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo and Puglia). It was a long enough trip that we could move slowly, picking hub towns to settle in for day trip adventures. We saw far more than we could ever anticipated and added many towns to our list for return visits.

So Much To See And Do

When asked, it is hard to answer “what was the best part?” But we can share some of the highlights?

Many Places To Discover In Emilia Romagna

  • Finding lots to do in the beach towns of the Adriatic coast of Italy even when the beaches were deserted – Igea Marina and Pescara

    • It was great to visit a less discovered part of Italy along the Adriatic coast. We were surprised at how much there was to see. Had a couple of great hotel concierges who would help with our daily "to see" list 🙂

  1. What an amazing 10 weeks it must have been! The photos looks great, thanks so much for sharing 😊 Italy is one place I’d love to spend more time in, just so much to see and do.

    • Russell, It was great to be off the tourist path. So many great little towns along the Adriatic side of Italy. Puglia was a great find and we will definitely go back. Sorrento is one of our favourite spots to stay on the Amalfi Coast – so it was great to have an extended stay. There is so much more to still see and do in Italy! Linda

  2. I have been to the coastal regions of of north-east Italy a few times like Venice, Lido di Spina, Rimini, San Marino, Ferrara etc but I am exploring some more on my three week family vacation when I drive to Ancona area from London, UK. I dont think I will get to those beautiful white houses in Puglia this time but I think that will be on my next trip to Italy with the family in 2021 (we love Italy and we go at least once a year to relax, eat, drink and check out the beautiful culture, buildings and landscapes, I am even learning the language now!). 😀

    • Danik, This is one of the reasons I would love to live in Europe. So easy to head off to another country to explore. I would love to visit Italy at least once a year. Great that you are learning the language. We wish we were more disciplined about that. So many great spots to enjoy in Italy. Linda

  3. Wow your 10 weeks journey around Adriatic coast of Italy is really an epic journey with so many historic and natural places. Historical Regatta parade looks awesome and I would love to witness this parade in Venice next year. Puglia in south too looks amazing. I loved rolling green hills, stunning beaches and historic red roof towns here.
