    Pedestrian and cycle bridge

    by shavy Written Apr 12, 2015

    This pedestrian bridge was open in 2010. They made people's life a lot easier so that they can cross to other side. They opened this on the sea, a pedestrian and cycle structure that connects the two banks of the river. The two roadways, one pedestrian and one for bikes, are united behind the two banks, then forking hugging big pylon that supports the structure

    The length of 465 meters in total of the structure from which you can admire the two coasts, flying over the river of Pescara. The bridge located in the port area of the City, you can view the construction work funded partly by private. The bridge structure is particularly futuristic.

    It is a beautiful pedestrian bridge with the signature of the architect Walter Pichler. With the horizon toward the inside. The top in the middle of the fairway is located at a height of 15.94 meters. As I looked at it is fairly steep and for bikes when is windy it would not be an easy ride

    Pescara Port

    by shavy Updated Apr 12, 2015

    This is my favourite part of the city, the harbor is very nice. But the weather wasn't cooperate that day. So it was unpleasant walk, but we enjoyed and glad we've done it and able to spend here. As I've seen the other side of the port where I stood on the bridge, where small boats are docked, we walk to this side near the bridge where we saw this fishermen boats. On the otherside is where all the yachts but we didn't make it there

    This side of the port is messy where all fishermen boats stands. I understand Pescara has a big harbor. Pescara harbor an Italian port stretching along the Adriatic Coast is of significance for the trading and tourism around the region. The port covers a dock, a freight yard and a sea bridge

    The port of Pescara has a ferry service to Turkey, Albania, Greece and Greek islands. Pescara harbor the economy has greatly developed in the 20th century. Which they're be grateful to the availability of hydroelectric power and modern road and rail

    Quite impressive sculpture

    by shavy Written Apr 12, 2015

    Its called the fountain, the ship because of the shape, it looks like a ship if taking the photos in different angle. This is design by Pietro Cascella, is a graduate of the Academy of Rome and after practicing painting he began to devote himself to sculpture in stone and bronze, to the early 50s.

    The work in question is from 1987 and is made of Carrara marble. It is located on the seafront of Pescara. He seeks to represent in his works a sense of power and energy, which recalls the great tradition of archaic.

    The sculpture is located on the seafront of Pescara. Along this boulevard you can do some good walking or cycling and there are several good restaurants with outdoor terraces and beach bars. This is a popular bathing place for Italian in summer time. Italians enjoy the beautiful and clean beaches of Pescara (Pescara Lido). The sea here is usually very quiet which is ideal for smaller children.

    Government Palace

    by shavy Updated Apr 12, 2015

    This local government is a beautiful and impressive building in the outskirts of the city. Is the administrative heart of the city. The Palace was built in the first half of the twentieth century 1927. It currently houses the offices of the Provincial Administration. The facade is in white stone decorated with sculptures representing the river, the mining, agriculture and the sea.

    If you can get inside this is a house of a famous painting by Francesco Paolo Michetti the daughter of Jorio. Sounds not famous but is known in the area

    The atrium of the entrance is accessed through a wide marble staircase, at the salon of marbles. Here you can admire the ceramic tiles in relief representing the coats of arms of all the municipalities of the Province of Pescara. There is also home to the provincial library

    Just strolled and enjoying the architecture

    by shavy Updated Apr 12, 2015

    Whatever you do if you wander around there's always something to admire. During our walk to the harbor, one side is the port while looking on the other side is architecture, the city has it both. There are plenty to do, the city lies on the blue Adriatic sea and offers beautiful beaches and a lively port.

    The Town Hall dates back to 1935 and is characterized by the high tower with a clock that is a symbol of the city.

    Pescara is a paradise for tourists seeking sun, sea and relaxation, while walking the streets is a pleasure. The business capital of the Abruzzo region and the border between North and South of Italy

    You can enjoy very well a fine Italian city break or beach holiday. The city itself is a paradise of art, architecture, history and culture. Walk through the intriguing, narrow streets, beautiful squares and visit the fascinating art exhibitions in the churches and museums, there are always to things to do.

    Wandering around the port

    by shavy Written Apr 12, 2015

    As we wander around the port, I noticed that this small boats are decorated with flag. This boats are used to go on fishing, when I first saw I thought those are decoration, but no, it is used for fishing. They're all docked under the bridge which are lovely to see.

    Pescara is a nice town which is easy to stroll around, the seaport area is a lovely place especially on the promenade. We we're here on easter weekend which was a bit calm. This boats are even not gone for fishing, I presume locals are not doing anything on this day

    Media Museum

    by shavy Written Apr 12, 2015

    We drive through and saw the place, it's intrigue me the location which lie in a nice small square. A media museum, the building it wasn't really properly in good state it looked like abandoned dilapidated place

    I have the idea that is more like a cultural center, all sorts of things that are held here such: Art exhibitions, music and etc. In addition to being a museum, it is also a public library

    The building is located to a very small square, very tiny park and surrounded by trees. In front there's a monument of Gabriele D'Annunzio, no idea who is he, probably one of the museum founder

    Cathedral of St. Cetteo

    by shavy Written Apr 12, 2015

    The church lies between in town and port of Pescara. Built between 1933 and 1938, the stone facade with three portals and three rose windows, takes its inspiration from Abruzzo Romanesque. The facade is framed by the peaked tower on the left and the baptistery on the right

    The imposing cathedral, known as Temple of National Reconciliation. The interior plan of a basilica, has three naves with raised presbytery by a staircase. In the chapel of the left transept is the tomb of Luisa d'Annunzio, the poet mother. On the side of the chapel is a painting of the ecstasy of St. Francis, attributed to Guercino, donated by Gabriele d'Annunzio.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was and still am amazed by the beautiful stained glass in Italy. I went to Atri and visited a factory of this famous stained glass artist, Federico Tamburri. The process from planning to designing and making was done here. Worth a visit.
