Pescara is the main city and resort on the coast of Abruzzo and is perfect for holidaymakers looking for fun in the sun, fantastic shopping and a vibrant nightlife. Not only is Pescara a delightful seaside resort on the Adriatic coast, but it is also the gateway into the rural and rugged Abruzzo region which features ancient hill towns, foreboding medieval castles and vast national parks. Whether you are after a relaxing beach holiday, a retail getaway or a superb cultural experience, then a holiday to Abruzzo and a visit to Pescara is right for you!
First and foremost holidaymakers come to Pescara for the sun, sand and crystal clear waters. The safe, clean beach stretches for over 10 miles and is lined by a promenade that offers endless strolling and loads of lovely little cafes. When the sun goes down the town comes alive with a bustling and exciting nightlife, with plenty of drinking places and party hotspots along the seafront, intermingled between the host of pizzerias and beach cafes.
If you are after some retail therapy then the main shopping district is located by Via Nicola Fabrizi and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, where most of the best fashion boutiques and local craft shops can be found and there is also an open air market every Monday, located near Pescara’s stadium. For a touch of culture, head to the Museum of the Abruzzi People -Museo delle Genti d’Abruzzo-, a fascinating museum that traces 4,000 years of Abruzzo tradition, life and history. Pescara also hosts an annual Jazz festival, one of Italy’s best music events that draws in many international and well-known acts. Away from Pescara there is still plenty to see and do such as discovering beautiful ancient hill towns, surpassing those of Tuscany and Umbria, or going for a hike through Abruzzo’s extensive national and regional park system.
If you fancy visiting a nearby city then a holiday to L’Aquilia can provide some culture for a day or two.
