Pescara is a bright, modern city, which is situated at the mouth of the river of the same, on the Adriatic Sea in Abruzzo, but less than an hour away from the highest peaks of the Apennine Mountains.
The city has been an exclusive tourism destination since the early twentieth century, as testified by period photos and the city’s elegant Art Nouveau villas, which are still carefully maintained.
A stroll along the sea front lives up to all expectations: from the beautiful views and the scent of the trees and plants, including the cheerful palms, to the night clubs that energise the tourist scene on summer nights.
But there are also picturesque open-air restaurants and a cycle path for taking in the healthy sea air. During the summer there are daily connections with Croatian islands (Havar and Split), as well as the Tremiti islands.
