Teramo

Cities and Towns in Abruzzo and Molise

 

Teramo's history is very ancient indeed.  Historian now believe that it is in fact pre-roman, after the discovery here of remains of funeral paraphernalia, similar to those found in the prehistoric tombs of Piceno.

Many believe that the Phoenicians were responsible for the foundation of Teramo, the name of which would derive from "Petrut" (elevated city surrounded by water), whilst others sustain that Teramo gave the name Abruzzo to the region. Modern day Teramo has its origins in the 15th century when the city was subject of various interventions which resulted in the creation of a quintessentially Abruzzese town, the style of which can be best seen in its many churches and basilicas.

Sites to visit include the Roman amphitheatre, the Roman theatre, Casa Urbani, Casa del Mutilato, Casa Melatino, the Vescovado, the Mosaico del Leone, the Monica Castle, the Collurania observatory and the Cippo Funerario.

Client Testimonials

I am a travel agent from Lebanon and have organized several group tours as well as individual tours of Italy with Italy Vacation Specialists. I highly recommend them as one of the very best tour operators in Italy to work with, given their professionalism and work ethic which I feel is second-to-none in the travel industry. All of the staff, the guides, the coaches and even the meals we enjoyed were fantastic throughout the tour. Italy is a beautiful country, though we realize very complicated to work in and for this reason we were all very appreciative to the hard work we felt when into the services we received and personal service. No doubt, we will be returning to Italy many times again and definitely working with the IVS team!
