Small - but quite nice
Aug 2020
Italy is full of wonderful old towns. We've seen many and always like to find some new Centro Storicos or Borgo Anticos.

Compared to many other towns, Termoli has a quite small old center. The location is quite beautiful though. Sitting on top of a hill, overlooking the ocean. You can walk all around the historic center, all with sea and port views. Inside the old center there is honestly not that much to see and do. Not just because of Corona. There are just not that many shops or restaurants. Only a handful. It was nice to walk around the small area anyways. But compared to other Historic Center it's quite a quick walk.

Still, landmarks like the Castello Svevo with the Belvedere della Torretta, the Cathedral of Saint Mary 'della Purificazione and the Piazza Duomo makes the visit worth a drive.

Don't miss out on the new part of town. The Corso Nazionale is a nice walking and shopping street. Surely worth a visit.

Difficult to imagine what might improve Termoli overall - its range of expression astounds!
May 2019 • Couples
My memory, over a lifetime of extensive drive visits all over Italy, is bookmarked with a personal COE selection of Hall of Fame mid-size candidates less commonly engaged. Among them (and not entirely out if the neighborhood) are for polar different Vieste and Lecce in Apulia. Newest to that revered category is Borgo Medievale di Termoli, which somehow suggest a little of both, yet retaining its own unique character in the process.

Older Termoli is an ironic alternate: in a flash either chic or cozy, urbane or seafaring, intimate or worldly. It is in some ways what for me Taormina in Sicily- lately overwhelmed in elite surrender - used to be, infinitely photogenic in varied options while never losing sight of its primordial simpler values.

It's a town in which to fall in love, and in the absence of such fortune, instead with which to do so. Termoli makes for a perfect and goal needless passeggiata stroll. Doubles resound: On a cool night, I might choose a small cigar, warm afternoon a nocciolo gelato to my wife's deep chocolate. Termoli's a dual battery a day better served by two meals and a mid-afternoon or later evening snack/drink rather than three.

Though there are fine meat options as well, proof of Termoli's legitimacy as a great seafood town is the central massive pesceria behemoth open only to commercial establishments and resembling a Wall Street Stock Exchange.

Here fish is bought in blocks of multiple cases by bidding with one hand recognized for being held higher than thirty surrounding it. If three surrounding regions want seafood, they may well find themselves in the midst of that particular incessant competition.

Termoli adjusts beautifully to varied intentions and interests. or three nights rather than a checked-off half day - if possible. Termoli is a very relaxing town as well. There is no massive list of check-offs required for a meaningful encounter here. One's unhurried eye, sans any book, directs attention to what is best not missed.

My wife and I are currently eating and walking our way through a wonderful birthday primavera week in Termoli. For those who prefer summer, it's all a little more challenging, but I imagine the payoff is more festivals and the immediate surrounding lovely beaches.

Termoli's Borgo Medievale is infinitely adaptive and ready for "to each one's own".

Wonderful medioeval village
Feb 2019 • Business
This is one of the infinite treasures you can find in Italy. All the area has limited car access and has its center in the main square with a beautiful romanic cathedral.
I strongly recommend to stroll around the area and also enjoy the sea view from above

Adorable sea-side old town
Jul 2018 • Couples
I ended up going to Termoli several times this past summer and touring the Old Town a few times. Built within a medieval castle (outer contsruction started only in 1847) this cute little walled city has much to offers.
You can admire the castle towers, visit the Cathedral in Piazza Duomo where you can also get a refreshing gelato, tour Largo Tommaso Giannelli and explore the many narrow streets.
There are rare finds restaurants and a number of artisan shops, B&B's and boutique hotels.
The houses are colorful, the strets are clean, and the view interesting (beach on one side, sea on other and port below on another, new town opposite entrance side).
Piazza Duomo is the most animated because it is spacious and often is the venue for musical and other cultural manifestations.

Do spend time to visit this fantastic and charming old center. It is said to have the smallest alleys of Italy. Also take some time to visit one of the seafood restaurants.

Stunningly quaint

A gem on the Adriatic. That simple. Go there. Stroll the streets. The tiny ones. Sit on the square with the cathedral. Get gelato. Listen to the music. Watch the kids play soccer/football. It's simple but amazing. La dolce vita.

WONDERFUL WALLED CITY RIGHT ON THE ADRIATIC COAST!
Jul 2017 • Family
Several generations of my family have spent our summers in Larino in land from Termoli. But the town of Termoli is almost like a sister city because of its location on the Adriatic beach. The new town is a vigorous hodgepodge of architectural styles like most new Italian communities. The most beautiful part of the community remains the Vecchio Borgo (the old city). It is a true walled community with stone entry ways and the defensive tower built some eight hundred years ago. It used to be a rather grey little town but now it is resplendent in pastel colours. It centres on an ancient church which, in itself, is worth the visit. You can be in the midst of a world you thought had ceased to exist and then, within minutes, you can be on the extensive and pristing stretch of beach or - if you prefer - you a can walk with the locals on the pedestrian-only shopping district of what could be called New Termoli. This little walled city would be a treasure in any part of the world, but the it still is something of a secret to modern tourism. Now the town is the site of a number of splendid little restaurants and from the city walls you can look northward towards Vasto (another lovely town) or you can watch the ferries as they head off to the Termoli Islands. Interestingly, this part of Italy is a destination for families and there is a gentleness to the atmosphere. Mind you parking does become a bit of a problem in the height of the season. That's why I recommend a visit in the spring or the fall. At the same time, I've enjoyed my stays at any time of the year. Termoli is an entry point to all the little hill towns of this part of Molise. If you want a taste of the authentic Italy put the Vecchio Borgo on your itinerary.
