Introducing Pescara

Abruzzo's largest city is a heavily developed seaside resort with one of the largest marinas on the Adriatic. The city was heavily bombed during WWII and much of the city centre was reduced to rubble. It's a lively place with an animated seafront, especially in summer, but unless you're coming for the 16km of sandy beaches there's no great reason to hang around. One sight not to miss is the Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo, which has plenty that will appeal to kids too.
