Map of Pescara (province)

Understand[edit]

Within the province of Pescara there is much to see and do. Whether you are interested in art, sport or eating, there is always something for you.

Get in[edit]

From Rome: the easiest way to get here is by bus. Check ARPA or CAGIDEMETRIO online and you will find a schedule with prices. A bus journey is just about 2 and a half hours. Travelling by train would be my last choice as it takes over 4 hours and the train stops frequently along its route. By car, Pescara is easily accessible and the fastest way to get here through an expressway.
