Flights / Re: Ryanair delays
« Last post by GeordieBorn on Yesterday at 07:21:22 PM »
Another delay on the cards tonight as we have family arriving and current departure estimate is 1 hour 40 minutes late! Although we were text about this an hour and a half ago I've checked Stansted, RyanAir, Abruzzo airport and flightstats sites AND they all still show the flight is on time. So don't go by any of these if going to pick anyone up, some real time data!

Just got back from two weeks at our house in Civitella Casanova and the view down to the sea from the front, up to the mountain at the back and the peace and quiet make it our favourite place. We had a trip to Ravello and Positano while we were there and both are beautiful particularly when the tourists leave in the evening and the views are all unobstructed.(we are not tourists of course)

Last year we went to Capri and once away from Capri town there are lovely walks round the cliff path which is not full of tourists but deliver wonderful views.

San Gimignano and Sienna also great but I agree can get very very busy and Venice is always a favourite but donít go in the summer if you want to see anything. I feel sorry for the residents who must have a difficult time then just to exist.

Pescara I agree is not spectacular but it is improving with some quite stylish bars and cafes but our own little village is for us the perfect antidote to modern life with real people working mainly hard and very welcoming. Not much goes on and Villa  Celiera close by seems to have more Festes than we do as we hear the fireworks at 8.00am announcing the start of festivities quite regularly.

 Missing it already.

thanks, I thought as much. Our fire would be fairly safe as it is in a brick built fire pit, only a cubic meter, and the pit is on the concrete terrace, always the risk of a stray spark flying out though I guess...the neighbour has just ploughed their field and it is all mud so no dry tinder lying around, but better safe than sorry, and if that is the law, then I will wait... (or just do a really small one and stick some arrosticini on it!) :)

Ask the comune, but here Iím sure you would not be supposed to light a fire between June and September (?). However many do just before rain or just as itís starting, I suspect they risk being either told off and/or fined. Personally with the dry strimming tinder we have lying around and the fields nearby just been combined, I would not dream of a fire at the moment.

can anyone help answer a question for me..we have a little house not really in the country, but inbetween two towns in a rural area. There is agricultural land on all sides. We want to have a bonfire, but I am pretty sure we are not allowed between June and I right or wrong? Not sure if the rules are different for towns, agricultural areas etc...thanks

Hi, I just saw this post on Vasto, it is a shame I did not see it earlier as I would have been able to help your friends. We live in Vasto and own a holiday rental business here.  There is loads of info on it about Vasto including some recommended trips and things to see in and around town. Like I say, sorry for the late post, but thought this info might be of help to anyone else thinking of visiting Vasto. cheers
