Things To Do

The Wedding Website of Courtney LaCroix and Alexei Levene
We will be hosting a robust schedule, but if you extend your stay, the beauty of the Italian peninsula never ceases to amaze. In addition to coasts, mountains and a rich cultural heritage, there are many hidden treasures. Torre Mannella is a great jumping off point to explore ancient, beautiful and authentic villages in Abruzzo! Abruzzo is also known for its delicious cuisine, which features local specialties such as arrosticini, grilled lamb skewers, and scrippelle, a type of crepe filled with cheese and eggs. Be sure to try the famous Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine, which is produced in the region’s vineyards.
