Chieti – The Closest Local City
Located in the south of Italy, some 100 plus miles away from Rome, is Chieti. It’s name comes from the Catholic inhabitants that settled the region hundreds of years ago. This beautiful location, sitting on the east coast near the Adriatic Sea, is one of the oldest cities in the country, said to be founded in 1181 BC by Achilles prior to the Roman Empire.
At a population of slightly over 50,000, this small city boasts a warm climate and a ton of culture. Average temperatures range from 47 degrees in January to high 70’s in the summer. Due to the warm climate, snow is uncommon. Chieti’s inhabitants are mostly people under the age of 19 or over the age of 65, which explains the relatively low income of just over 14,000 Euro.
Chieti’s most popular tourist attractions are the museums. The first is the Museo Archeologico Nazionale d’Abruzzo which features an array of statues honoring great warriors of the past. The most famous of the statues are the Warrior of Capestrano and two separate statues created to commemorate Hercules; one is made of bronze and the other of marble.
The 2nd most popular attraction is the Cathedral of Saint Justin of Chieti. The prominent front end of the cathedral has undergone repairs in the recent years, yet sits 100 feet above the next tallest building. The outer posts protect a tall dome with a Crucifix attached to the very top, watching over the church. The church is home to Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic participants who travel from all over the region to celebrate mass there.
If you’re in the mood for an outdoor excursion, visit the Palazzo de Majo. This colorful architectural masterpiece showcases a 10 foot fountain surrounded by a collection pool and plenty of park bench seating. Tourists throw a penny in the fountain for good luck when they visit.
Afterwards, walk to the Teatro Marrucino, Chieti’s oldest theater. Steeped in cultural traditions, this theater puts the talent of hundreds of actors on display for reasonable prices. For 45-60 Euro, you can see a fantastic, well-performed theater piece. Multiple events each day allow for plenty of options to choose from.
