Pescara Visitor information

Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo Region of Italy and is  one of the area's most popular beach towns. The majority of visitors come to Pescara come for the sun, sand and sparkling clear waters, but the town itself also offers several noteworthy cultural attractions, including one of Italy's best music festivals.

The 10 miles of wide, clean beach is the main attraction in Pescara it is lined by a walkway that offers endless strolling and people-watching and the central Square (Piazza Rinascita) is full of cafes and restaurants that fill the plaza with tables and chairs.

Seafood is the main dish in Pescara and hot peppers are used extensively, and some of the city's signature dishes, like Polpi in purgatorio - cuttlefish cooked with tomatoes, peppers and garlic - can be extremely spicy. For a cheaper meal you can visit the port, where the local fisherman have small beachside hut restaurants and cook up the day's catch for a totally fresh meal at a fraction of the price of the restaurants.

Pescara has a lively nightlife scene during its high season and the beach is lined with drinking establishments that feature dancing on the beach during the warm summer months. The center of the city also houses many nightclubs that spill out into the streets. The International Jazz Festival in July brings big names from around the globe and is one of the country's top music festivals.

Trains travel up and down the Adriatic coast as well as into the interior of Abruzzo from Pescara, linking the city with Rome, Ancona and Bari. During the summer, a daily ferry crosses the Adriatic Sea to Croatia’s island of Hvar.

Pescara has a Mediterranean climate typical of Adriatic Sea, with dry, hot summers, moderate rainfall in winters and high humidity all year round.

History of Pescara

The name Piscaria appeared in 12th century documents, and probably referred to a small center built after the period of invasions on the place of the ancient Roman Aternum, situated at the estuary of the Aterno-Pescara river.

Aternum was first a port of the Marrucini and Peligni people, and under Roman times became the main port of the region. It was however sacked and destroyed by the Lombards in the 6th century AD. In the Middle Ages two towns rose on the opposite banks of the Pescara river: Pescara to the south, belonging to the province of Chieti, and Castellammare Adriatico in the north, included in the province of Teramo.

The unified new town in 1927 became the capital of the newly formed province of Pescara, and a renowned seaside resort in the 1930's. Because of its important strategic position as a railway center and harbor, Pescara was subject to heavy Allied bombings during WW2, that almost razed it to the ground, killing thousands and thousands of people.
