Pescara Things to Do

  • Pedestrian and cycle bridge

    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...

  • Pescara Port

    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...

  • Quite impressive sculpture

    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...

  • Government Palace

    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.

  • Wandering around the port

    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...

  • Media Museum

    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 placeI 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...

  • Cathedral of St. Cetteo

    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 rightThe imposing cathedral, known as Temple of National Reconciliation. The...

We arrive on a good Friday, a day that Italian don't eat meat as part of traditionThere is a restaurant in the hotel where we stay, but this closed on good Friday. The owner said to us we gonna have to eat pizza or else nothing. We...

  • One More Good Seafood Restaurant

    The menu looks rather poor when you start reading it, but the waiter will make you change your mind. As practically every dish will be cooked according to your taste, wish etc. All the portions are very big.There are tables with a nice sea-view. Fish in the oven and of course the starters assorty.

  • Cooking as an Art

    It's so happened that we visited this restaurant 3 times (and as there are 4 of us, we managed to taste most of its menu).Our acquaintance started long before our arrival to Pescara. I read restaurant reviews at this site and chose it for our Ferragosta Dinner. I was pleasantly surprised that there was an opportunity to book a table via internet.We...

  • l'aroma di Pescara

    The cake and coffee cousin of the Gourmet Venezia at Viale Regina Margherita, 16 reviewed here, good night stop for some espresso and home baking The above mentioned home baking!

  • Gourmet Venezia

    Had to check my records for the name of the restaurant, I thought it was Gourmet Venezia (cf. less upmarket Caffe Venezia tip) but receipt says otherwise.Fabulous breads, we had bottled Leggerra mineral water and a local wine with a starter that was a piece of parma ham and avocado. Tagliata di Vitello - as pictured - was served with salad, grated...

    Quick snacks of pizze slices and suppli with a soft drink and a beer to sit in totalled Eu12 Just enough for when you have overshot at lunch! Great little "farcita pizzett" and delicious croquette like suppli

  • Chinese opposite stazione centrale

    This is a comfortable value for money unpretentious ristorante cinese atop the main shopping street. Also, it is just across Piazza del Rinascente from the public partof the beach. We had a quick and inexpensive lunch here in shorts and sandals twice, which were days we probably only had a pizza slice at night time.We were about Eu24 for wine beer...

  • - At least not "Wild Bill"!

    Functional but uninspired choice of steak, grilled chicken breasts, pork etc, served with chips and little else - as is the Italian way. you will order verdure or insalata separately. Would not in all honesty be in a huge hurry to return but if you are in this area, perhaps after the football as the stadium is nearby, it is simple and filling and...

  • Qucik pizza slices panini and burgers

    Panini, pizze slices, hamburgers, cold drinks at this counter service tavola caldo type place we twice had a quick lunch at.You will see a two tier history to my Pescara restaurant tips! Largely we would dress for dinner and eat more than one course at trattoria in the evening. For lunch we would generally roll off the beach in shorts and sandals...

    Marni Beach Disco: Sunday Night Hip Hop By Beach

    by CLillard Written Sep 22, 2006

    Unfortunately most of the nightclubs along the beach close in early or mid September.

    Marni Beach was open on a Sunday night in early September. Sundays they play R&B, Hip Hop, and reggaeton. To find a disco, we drove along the beach and listened for the loud music. This club was outdoors next to the beach.

    I think they have a non-beach club location when it's not summer - Via delle Caserme, 44 - Pescara

    The crowd was early 20s.

    Auchan: A Galery Next to the Airport

    by shavy Updated Apr 8, 2015

    Pescara airport has nothing much of a duty free, there is only one restaurant cafe and two duty free on departure hall. After picking up our car we saw this big mall outside the terminal, we drove up there as we needed some drinks. It is open till 21:00, it is a big galery. We're looking for the supermarket, this is quite big we have to ask where the supermarket is. There was a galery map but we only seen it when we come out

    When we enter we don't know where to go, there are plenty small stores inside, boutiques and restaurants, but our main goal here just to buy drinks and leaves right away, we have no time to stroll around, it was pretty late already. You will find everything here if you have time to stroll around before your flight.

    It is a convenience galery if you have a car and need some food or drinks you can drive here first before going to your destination. You can also walk from the terminal it is right next door. There are 34 shops and 1 hypermarket, and a huge parking spaces

    Auchan supermarket is very big, you should know earlier what you need, otherwise it'll take time to walk the hallway just by searching your needs. Opening hours: From Monday to Sunday 8:30 to 21:00

    From the terminal look to your right side

Pescara Tourist Traps

    Did you believe airport was close by the...

    by lichinga Written Mar 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes, on the map, the airport area is very close to the city indeed! But... how to find your direction: that is the problem. No road signs while you leave the airoport, an ibcredible amount of roundabout that are supposed to make things easier, but they are not.

    Unique Suggestions: Ask for detailed informtaion before you leave: once you've gone, it may be too late. I spent half an hour driving before reaching the city centre, but I had to negotiate with people going back home from a supermarket parking place.

  • Porchetta

    This is a very good roadside snack. The skin is very crispy and the meat taste like Pekking Duck. When wrapped into a french loaf, it is fit for a meal. You can also try the sausage as a side. Just stop by any pushcart along any road with the sign. This snack originated from Abruzzi area and best eaten at its origin..HERE..
