The best way, in my opinion, to reach Torricella is to take the Pullman to Rome (about 2.5 hours, and I think it arrives at Tiburtina bus and train station like all the others), and then the Pullman to Lanciano - leaves at 10 am, 2:30 pm (this is the best one), and another sometime later in the afternoon - wait 1 and i/2 hours then take the Pullman at 6:30 at the Lanciano train station to Torricella, which arrives at 8 pm. You can always rent a car if this is too time-consuming. Stay at the Albergo Cape or the Paradiso.
I hate to be negative, but one cannot just go and find one's relatives - it takes some time to find them. However, the people at the Cape will know who is named Nicolo - and if there are any left in the town. Do ask them. BTW, how is your Italian?????
