Pescara Visitor information

Historic it may be, but Pescara, the largest city in the Abruzzo, is today an overwhelmingly modern urbanisation. It stands on the Adriatic coast on each side of the mouth of the Aterno-Pescara river, its sandy beaches stretching for over 20 kilometres along the coast, making it a very popular holiday centre, primarily for Italians. The beaches are the main draw, and you can cycle for miles along the coast, crossing the estuary via the Ponte del Mare, built in 2009 and Italy’s longest pedestrian and cycle bridge. 

As a university city, Pescara is particularly proud of its association with Gabriele d’Annunzio, the early 20th-century poet, playwright and soldier. You can visit the house where he was born in 1863, but more interesting is the Museo delle Genti d’Abruzzo, which tells the story of the Abruzzo people through art, artefacts and displays. 

History of Pescara

Pescara’s main building in Roman times was the temple dedicated to Jove, and it remained a pagan city until the 2nd century. Its patron was St Cetteus, a bishop elected to the Bishopric of Sabina in 590 during Gregory the Great’s pontificate. Its religious history is bound up with its rulers in the following centuries: a Catholic city, ruled successively by different Catholic occupiers.
