Pescara is a fishing port and fantastic sea resort on the Adriatic, offering excellent clean beaches and hotels. It has a long history and was named by the Romans when they conquered it in 214 B.C.

Today it has a population of about 120,000 people. Pescara's most famous inhabitant was the Italian poet-patriot Gabriele D'Annunzio who was born there in 1863.

Pescara is the capital of the Pescara province in the Abruzzi region of Italy. A region that covers some 4,000 square miles and has a population in excess of 1 million people. It has some of the most beautiful and varied countryside in Italy, with its acres of land covered in vineyards and olive trees to its fantastic beaches and stunning mountains. The rich culture and history of the area is visible in the citadels and castles nestled all over the region.
