Useful city facts

  • Pescara has a Mediterranean climate with subtropical influences. The city enjoys hot summers that are more humid than in many other cities in the Mediterranean basin and mild, but breezy winters. The average high temperature is 29°C  (84°F) in July and August, the warmest months, and 11°C  (52°F) in January, the coldest. Precipitation is the highest from October to December.
  • Although located on the Adriatic coast, Pescara is very close to a number of mountain ranges. With a rental car, you can get very close to peaks like the Corno Grande (which at nearly 3,000 m (9,850 ft) is the highest peak in the Apennines) and ski resorts like Passolanciano-Maielletta in 90 minutes or less. 
  • Inhabited since the Neolithic era, Pescara was already an important port and trading center before Roman times. For a long time, the city was known as Aternum. Later destroyed a number of times, the city was always rebuilt and was ruled by many powers including the Byzantine Empire, the Kingdom of Naples, the Moors and the Normans. Later part of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, the city joined unified Italy in 1860. The diverse influences of the city’s earlier rulers can still be observed in its eclectic architecture, cuisine, and traditions. 

Top destinations and activities

  • Beaches. Located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, Pescara is a great beach destination. There’s plenty to choose from, too, as there are many beaches right in the city and even nicer ones nearby, like in the village of Montesilvano just north of Pescara and in Francavilla to the south. If you’re still not satisfied, with a rental car, you can easily travel up or down the coast to find the perfect spot. 
  • Pescara Cathedral. Also known as San Cetteo Cathedral after the patron saint of Pescara, it is the most famous church in Pescara. Pescara Cathedral was built in the 1920s and 1930s at the site of an older medieval cathedral that had fallen into disrepair and needed to be torn down. Nowadays, the romanesque church is the seat of the local archbishop and is also a popular tourist site. 
  • The city center. Once home to the fortified town of Piazzaforte, the historic city center is home to most of the landmarks of Pescara. These include Bagno Borbonico (an old prison of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies), the house in which the famous Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio was born, and the Museum of the Abruzzi People dedicated to the millennia-long history of human settlement of Pescara and the surrounding region.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain, the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact toll depends on your choice of route and type of vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • L'Aquila. Located in a picturesque valley and surrounded by high mountains, the small capital of the Abruzzo region has its fair share of attractions. Travelers like to visit the impressive Spanish Fort (or Forte Spagnolo), L’Aquila Cathedral, and the Santa Giusta gothic church. L’Aquila is also near a few nice ski resorts, the most famous of which is Gran Sasso d’Italia. Located 100km (62 miles) west of Pescara, the city can be reached in about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  • Rome. With a blend of a mighty history and an exciting present, the eternal city is a destination like no other. There are more world-famous landmarks and attractions than it's possible to list, but visiting the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Vatican City would be a highlight of any trip. The city can be explored for days, but if you want the first taste, at 210km (130 miles) west of Pescara it can be reached in only two hours and thus can easily be visited as a day trip. 
  • The National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio, and Molise. Spanning three Italian regions and made up of impressive summits, rapid mountain rivers, and steep gorges, it is one of the most scenic national parks in Italy. Many visitors come here to canoe, hike, or boulder, while others simply enjoy being outdoors. The national park is home to diverse flora and fauna like the Marsican brown bear, the Italian wolf, the European wildcat, and the crested porcupine. The nearest corner of the park is some 115km (71 miles) west of Pescara and can be reached in 1 hour and 25 minutes.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Pescara is the Fiat 500, closely followed by the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat Panda. The most popular rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.

Further destinations

  • Perugia. The capital of the Umbria region, Perugia has been somewhat flying under the radar when it comes to Italian tourist destinations. But that shouldn’t hold you back since this university city has plenty to offer from the stunning Palazzo dei Priori building to Rocca Paolina fortress and ancient Etruscan and Roman sites. The city also claims to produce the best chocolate in the country. Located 250km (155 miles) northwest of Pescara, Perugia takes three hours to reach by car.
  • Naples. The birthplace of pizza, the location of the largest historic center in Europe, and the gateway to some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy like those on Capri or the Amalfi Coast, the capital of Campania region is not short of tempting attractions. The world-famous ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed at the eruption of Pompeii nearly 2,000 years ago, are also right around the corner. Located 245km (152 miles) southwest of Pescara, Naples can be reached in about 3 hours and 15 minutes.
  • Marche. The region of Marche is sometimes overlooked as a tourist destination, but that can work in its favor. Less crowded with visitors, and with nature that’s less dramatic and more serene than in the surrounding regions, it is a calm and idyllic holiday region to be enjoyed at a slower pace. The capital city, Ancona, is 160km (99 miles) north of Pescara and can be reached in about three hours with most of the road taking you right along the Adriatic coast.
