Sightseeing in Pescara - what to see. Complete travel guide

Pescara is a large port city and a center of shipbuilding, textile industry and fishing. Besides this, the city is a well-known beach resort, so in summer there are always many tourists here. The total length of all beaches of Pescara estimates more than 10 km; absolutely all of them are perfectly equipped and offer numerous opportunities for relaxation and comfort.
The closer to the center of the city the beach is, the more entertainments are located near it. In the beach area you will always find several restaurants and cafes, children's center and sports equipment rentals. If you enjoy diving, remote beaches will suit you the most as there are no so many people there and the water is much cleaner.
Besides the relaxing rest on the beach vacationers can visit numerous excursions and discover main attractions of the city. In Pescara you will find numerous old buildings, the most popular of which are San Setteo Cathedral, the Government Palace and the house of Gabriele D'Annunzio. While making a walk on the streets of the city, you will see old churches and temples, the oldest one of which is the Church of the Holy Spirit and St. Andrew built in the 12th century. Copyright
Those tourists, who want to learn about the history of the city, should visit Delle Genti d `Abruzzo Museum, where they will see the collections of artifacts starting from ancient time and until the middle of the 20th century.
Pescara - Ponte del mare Pescara is also the location of International Jazz Festival, so every year in mid-July - late August this place is full of fans of jazz music from all countries of the world. The city will attract not only for music fans, but also lovers of Italian cuisine because local chefs create true miracles. You will be offered a large selection of dishes made of seafood in any restaurant of the city. Here you will also find restaurants specializing in Mexican, Japanese and Asian cuisine.
The main tourist street of the city is Corso Umberto I, remarkable for its numerous historical buildings, as well as the variety of popular restaurants and cafes. A significant part of the buildings that we can see on the historic street was erected in the 18th-19th centuries. Today, on the ground floor of many historic buildings there are attractive stores and souvenir shops.
An interesting cultural institution is Museo Casa Natale di Gabriele d'Annunzio. During the Second World War, almost the whole city was in ruins. Most of its historical monuments were lost forever in this period. Among the destroyed buildings was a house of the famous poet where his mother lived. After the war, the poet decided to restore the building. By 1963, a museum dedicated to his work was opened here. The atmosphere of the turn of the 19th-20th centuries is accurately recreated in the house museum. The museum's exhibits include many interesting personal belongings of the poet.
The miniature Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo is sure to please fans of fascinating tours. It introduces visitors to the beautiful traditions and customs of the Abruzzo region. The museum displays a collection of ancient household items; a large part of the exhibition consists of various agricultural devices. Some of them look so bizarre that it's really hard to guess their purpose at first glance.
Basilica della Madonna dei Sette Dolori built in the 17th century stands out among other religious monuments of Pescara. Legend has it that once upon a time the local people saw the image of the Holy Virgin in the very place where the basilica is currently located. Many unique religious artifacts are stored within its walls. A colorful holiday in honor of the Mother of God is held here every year on June 1.
At the top of one of the hills is a miniature church, named after St. Sylvester. This church is characterized by an impressive impregnable appearance. It had been used by locals as a fortress for many years. Within the walls of this church, they could escape from floods or hide from conquerors. Today, the church is attractive for its beautiful antique decoration, while its surrounding area is perfect for walking. The hilltop where the church stands offers a wonderful view of adjacent territories.
