Crossed by the river of the same name, Pescara is a modern city bordering the Adriatic Sea. It arises from the union (in 1927) of two towns (Castellammare Adriatico and Pescara), formerly located on the opposite banks of a river.
A dynamic and contemporary city, Pescara is the reference point for commerce and services in Abruzzo. Moreover, its broad and equipped coast has numerous bathing establishments and restaurants by the sea and a long cycle path. But Pescara is very popular, not only during the summer season.
