Imagine a clear blue sea and golden beaches, hills that protect the town and dominate the skyline, seaside paths to stroll along, gazing into the distance and watching out for fishing boats returning to shore in the warm evening light. This is Tortoreto, a hilltop town with an ancient center. Here the past has left its traces, particularly in the Torre dell'Orologio (Clock Tower), the remains of the ancient medieval defensive wall, the graceful churches and elegant palaces. The influence of the sea is everywhere. You'll see it in the town's everyday life, its food and its traditions. It's a beautiful sea that can be enjoyed from the Fortellezza, a natural terrace from which a thrilling panorama unfolds.
