Termoli is a pleasant seaside town in southern Italy, on the Adriatic coast. It features a tiny medieval village perched on a rocky promontory thrust out on the sea, as well as a modern part towards the interior and along the beaches north and south of the rock. Weather is mild to warm, sunny most of the time. Do not forget your bathing suit. From the city port, the splendid Tremiti Isles can be reached by boat in about one hour, and are likely to be the destination of a daily trip.
Termoli may be reached by train (train station is within walking distance of the school venue). The Italian railway information site carries an english-language electronic timetable. Approximate travel times from main Italian cities with airports are: Rome (Roma Termini) 5 hours; Milan (Milano Centrale) 6.5 hours; Bologna 4.5 hours; Pescara 1 hour; Bari 2 hours; Naples (Napoli Centrale) 4.5 hours.
