Pescara and around


Abruzzo’s coastline stretches for 125km from the border with the Marche region down to the seaside resort of Vasto. The main town and resort of the Abruzzo coast is PESCARA, a bustling, modern place that’s the region’s most commercial city, with a 16km stretch of beach. It’s also the nearest town to Abruzzo’s airport, where low-cost flights from the UK touch down.
