Town House to Rent in Lanciano


My favourite time of the day is early evening. It's still warm, and the streets in front of the house are quite. The sky turns red and sat on the balcony you can watch the sun setting behind the mountains. Dressed smart we leave the house and start the evening.

Evening drinks in Lanciano

After a five minute walk we stop at the local bar for an aperitif. Today I'll have a Brachetto, sparkling rosé wine. My wife likes the aperitif 'analcolico della casa' (non-alcoholic cocktail) and the children choose a fresh ice-cream. The streets are full of people of all ages having their early evening walk, chatting and drinking their aperitifs. It is surprising lively but then at 8.00 o-clock they all disappear into their houses to start their evening dinner.


We begin to talk about what to eat. We can go for fresh fish which is a little more expensive but with a light local white wine makes a memorable meal. We could eat succulent meat instead. Lamb is the Abruzzi specialty but I still prefer beef fillet, I have never eaten beef filet better than here. There is the quicker more informal option like pizza. We don't worry about taking our small children because they are accepted (and usually adored) anywhere we go.

We decide for pizza. We don't want to be too late eating as there is a festival on in a local village and we don't want to miss the music and fireworks.


Lanciano is a very beautiful mediaeval small city which dates back to 1098 B.C. It has a population of about 70,000 and is 269 meters above sea level. Lanciano still maintains its antique character and warmth as a typical real Italian city. The city is based on rolling hills which steadily grow higher as you head towards the mountain. It is 15 minutes from the sea, 45 minutes from Pescara airport (flights available from Ryanair) and 50 minutes from ski resorts (by car).

Just over an hour away is Italy's third biggest skiing resort Roccaraso. There are a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants where you can eat any type of local cuisine. There are some unique historical and architectural buildings and churches and there is a world famous Eucharistic miracle housed in Lanciano.


Scattered around the hills near Lanciano are towns and villages with local specialties and secret beauties to discover on day trips.
