A modern metropolitan port with an old-world soul, Pescara is a paradise for visitors who find joy in simple, natural pleasures. Spend your time lounging upon the balmy Adriatic coastline, or hiking along the verdant network of trails near the Tirino and Pescara Rivers. Arrive invigorated and ready to explore with Alitalia’s premium in-flight features such as extra-comfort seats aboard your flight to Pescara.
If you have never traveled to Pescara before, your first stop should be the birthplace home of Gabriele D’Annunzio, where records, photographs and memorabilia of the famed local poet and playwright are on display. Where you go from there depends on your taste, but most visitors head straight for Pescara’s 16-kilometer stretch of resort beaches. The area is blessed with an abundance of hot springs and spas as well, so you’re sure to find a form of relaxation to suit you.
Pescara is a very bicycle-friendly city, so renting one to get around is a good idea. The city has an electric nightlife scene, with open-air bars along the coastline and thrumming nightclubs further inland. If you are able to book your tickets to Pescara for July, you can enjoy one of Europe’s most celebrated and influential international music festivals: Pescara Jazz.
