Chieti Italy

Chieti Italy

Chieti city (pronounced kee-yay-tee) is located in central Italy on a hill overlooking the Pescara River. Sitting below Mt. Maiella and above the Sabgro Valley - the wooded mountains of the region, this place offers gorgeous landscapes to the observer. Cove-marked coastline displays some of the most beautiful beaches. Roman influence is noticeable while strolling around town. The city gate, Porta Pescara, and the remains of the Templi Romani, theater and bath complex complete with beautiful mosaics are breathing history and make great sights to explore. Chieti lights up with festivals and concerts at night and stands grand in all its glory with palace-lined streets and spacious squares where small cafes are buzzing during the day. It’s here that one of the most colorful festivals held, when the streets get carpeted in decoratively arranged flower petals in honor of Corpus Domini. and Finally you must not depart without trying out the icon delicacy of the city - savory arrosticini (little lamb nuggets on skewers), stuffed roasted rabbit and sweet, chewy torrone nougat candy.
