PESCARA – THE PICTURESQUE MARINA ON THE ADRIATIC SEA

Situated on the Adriatic Coast, right at the point where the Aterno-Pescara River meets the Adriatic Sea, Pescara is the capital of Pescara Province of the Abruzzo region in Italy. In fact, it is considered to be one of the largest seaside resorts in Italy, and is home to one of the most famous as well as the largest of all the marinas on the Adriatic. The city was virtually turned into a heap of rubble by the allied bombing during World War II, and rose from the ashes to be one of the most thriving port cities of Italy today.

The fringes of the city extend from the coastlines along the Adriatic sea to the heights of the Central Apennine massifs, bordering Teramo to the north, the Adriatic Sea to the northeast, Chieti to east, and L’Aquila to south and west.

The city itself can be broadly divided into two parts, which are absolutely different from each other in a number of ways. The two areas are the coastal and the hilly external area, with its clay rises, which gently slopes down into the waters of the Adriatic, undulations of the alluvial plains, and the silvery, glistening sandy shores, and the inner hilly and mountainous region, which is rich is carbonate Apennine Peaks.

The inner portion of the region can again be sub divided into a number of parts, on the basis of the number of rivers they run into, a fantastic bridge, a wide range of a variety of wildlife, or flora and fauna, and the River Pescara.

The entire region is an epitome of natural beauty. Since one part of the region starts down the slopes of the mountains, which gradually tend to merge in the Adriatic waters, the city is thronged by people from Europe and from other parts of Italy. The slopes and lush green, and undulating and are generally thronged by the lambs and cows and goats and wild boars. It is a unique scenario with so much greenery at one end, and towering peaks at the other, making the city a household name, when it comes to trekking, excursion or simple tours to hilly regions for a few days.

Pescara today is the largest and the most populated city of the Abruzzo region. Besides, it is one of the most important centers from the economic, commercial, as well as tourist centers on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The city is abuzz with tourists during the summers. As it is located along the coastline, and the sea is virtually at stone throwing distance from the city, Pescara has a number of backwaters with huge rocks, which are strategically placed by the locals for protecting the shore from the water-flood erosion.

Apart from the pristine Adriatic beaches, the city is also immensely famous for the annual International Jazz Festival – Pescara Jazz that is held annually on every July.

The city can be accessed by motorways, airport, road rail and sea. While there are two motorways – A14 Bologna – Tarant Motorway and A25 Torano – Pescara Motorway, the city is also connected by international flights from rest of Europe and Italy that use in the Abruzzo International Airport.

The Pescara Port is not only famous for fishing activities but for ferries and commercial services that ferry passengers from the other ports of Europe.

The city has as many as 4 railway stations. Of them the Pescara Centrale Railway Station is the main as well as one of the largest rail stations of Italy, connecting the city with places like Rome, Turin, Bari, Milan, Bologna, Ancona and others. There are a number of bus services that carry passengers to and from the city.
