Pescara is a city in Abruzzo. It is the most populous city of the region, as well as being an active industrial center (metal and mechanics, conciaria, refining of sulfur, petrochemical), agricultural market and port fishing boat. Located on the sea, it is a popular seaside resort.


Traffic is their biggest problem along with limited parking. Taxis are few, it is an easy city to walk around. There are pedestrian areas which are limited to traffic and good sidewalks. Just get in with a good pair of shoes and enjoy

Get in

By plane

It is possible to fly from Brussels South (Charleroi) to Pescara using the Italian low-budget airline OnAir [8]

You can also fly Ryanair from London direct to Pescara Airport which is less than 10 minutes from the city. You can take direct flight from JFK and Toronto (on Air Transat) though with a limited schedule. Ryanair also flies from Oslo (Torp) every Saturday and Tuesday. It flies also from Frankfurt (Hahn) in Germany[9]

By train

The train from Rome takes about four hours but it is a spectacular route through the mountains, through towns such as Avezzano and Sulmona.

By car

You can drive to Pescara from Rome Ciampino Airport in about 1.5 hours. The drive is relatively free of traffic through the mountains, the view is excellent and there are lots of tunnels and bridges to cross.

There are ferries in the summer connecting Pescara with Split and several islands in central Dalmatia including Hvar. Car ferries are run by Jadrolinija [10] and faster hyrdofoils by SNAV [11]. Ferries leave from the ferry terminal. There are daily regular services to Rome which takes around 2 hours to arrive.

Get around


Small charming characteristic towns, open markets and local festivals in the nearby area are ideal for day trips to explore. And in the evenings, the beach cafes and the old town of Pescara Porto transform themselves into vibrant night spots.

The mountain range also known as "La Bella Dormentata" (The Sleeping Beauty) is 40 mins away and its extensive park system includes natural beauty akin to national parks in the western United States. Within Abruzzo's parks lie some of Italy's most beautiful ancient hill towns rivaling those of Tuscany and Umbria.
