Pescara, the gateway to the rugged mountainous Abruzzo region, is framed by the snowy peaks of the Apennine Mountains. The land tumbles through the hilltop villages and down to the blue waters of the Adriatic Ocean. In the town of Pescara itself, the long ten-mile stretches of wide, clean and sandy beaches and superb food and wine, offer many inviting opportunities to its visitors. These are the perfect conditions for a relaxing break for families, or as a restful prelude before venturing into the mountains or hiking through the region’s many national parks.
