The Coast and the Countryside

Lorenza Bacino takes a tour of this seaside town and its surrounding province and discovers pretty villages, abbeys, churches, museums, and lots of wonderful places to eat

Ten reasons to love Pescara

The coast at Pescara is one of the loveliest on the Adriatic coast, but there is much to see inland too

Little visited by British tourists, this is an area yet to be discovered

The province of Pescara surrounds the city of the same name and lies in the very centre of the region of Abruzzo, on the Adriatic coast. Though it is the most densely population province in Abruzzo, thanks mainly to the city of Pescara, the general feel is one of space and peacefulness – not least in the National Park of Majella, in which stands the town of Castiglione a Casauria (see below).

This is a part of Italy of remarkable beauty and with cultural riches galore, yet it has never been a major destination for foreign tourists, largely because the region is not very well served by international flight routes. That said, however, many Italians make their way to the coast here in the summertime.



The coastal city of Pescara is most famous today for being the birthplace of Gabriele D’Annunzio, perhaps the greatest Italian writer of the modern era. It is a developed coastal resort with several miles of popular sandy beaches and a range of summertime activities for all the family to enjoy.
