Discovering an area full of surprises
Embraced by the Adriatic Sea, the Gran Sasso and Maiella massifs, the province of Pescara is an area full of surprises. Dotted with villages, the area is predominantly hilly, but it is where the blue of the sea alternates with the golden sand of the Adriatic beaches where tourists and bathers from all parts of Italy - and beyond - arrive every year to spend their summer holidays.
Pescara is its capital and the most populous city in the region. The reconstruction of the old town, after the bombing suffered during World War II, gives it a modern appearance. On a human scale, it is lively and generous.
The waterfront is home to bathing establishments where you can soak up the sun during the day and have fun, with many restaurants, bars and clubs, at night. Birthplace of the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio, one of the unmissable stops in the city is his Birthplace.
The whole province knows how to win over visitors with history, nature and sights to visit, all with a bunch of arrosticini in hand. From the Pescara Springs, the Cerrano Tower, to the Majella National Park, the Sanctuary of the Holy Face and the Hermitage of San Bartolomeo, the province of Pescara is a pearl of central Italy.
