Despite its relatively small size, Pescara's old town is a true gem. Its main streets are Corso Manthoné, via delle Caserme and via dei Bastioni (the latter follows the same path as the ancient Roman road connecting Pescara to Rome), while Piazza Garibaldi is the heart of the old town. Here, in a 500 m range, visitors may find three gorgeous museums (the Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo, hosted in the 500 year old barracks of the ancient fortress, displaying the history of people and traditions in Abruzzo; Gabriele D'Annunzio's birthplace museum; and the Cascella Museum, which contains a gorgeous collection of Abruzzese paintings from the XIX and XX century), archaeological sites (es. Santa Gerusalemme, a medieval church built on top of a Roman temple), the cathedral of Saint Cetteo, as well as dozens a m a z i n g restaurants serving traditional local cuisine (Taverna 58 and Pescì are must visit) as well as foreign (Chef Nestor and Giappo for Japanese, Omar Kayyam for Persian). Moreover, the whole area is literally full of archaeological remains waiting to be restored and brought back to life.

You cannot leave Pescara without taking a walk along Corso Manthone' in the old part of the town. The road is lined with pubs, restaurants and bars of all sorts. In summer and spring the area is crammed with outdoor seating so you can enjoy people walking by. Apart from the different food offered, there are places for teenagers, the older ones, the young ones, lesbians, gays, snobs or stingy people! There is something for everyone and each place has its own atmosphere. Just a few minites away from the city centre

We arrived at Pescara airport from Stansted airport. I was about an hours drive from there to the location we stayed at.

Italy was great. It was my second trip this time I stayed with my friend in a place called Montebello de Bertona. The nearest town was Penne and the nearest airport is Pescara. It’s kind of central Italy on the east coast. It is part of the Gran sasso national park area. Yes it was good to get away and just relax, not think of work or anything else.

The area is quite a mountainous and in that region, we went to the top of the mountains where you can also ski at a place called Campo Imperatone.

It was very sunny at the top when we arrived but lower down you could still see it was cloudy, as you can imagine. I found it to be very picturesque, postcard type. My only wish was that I should have brought a proper camera.

We had lots of pasta, I am not really a big fan of pasta but it was nice to try different varieties and the genuine article. We ate out every night and there are lots of courses, and I found it very filling. One night we had pizza and we saw them making it on the clay oven in the restaurant. It was great to see (photo opportunity missed) lots of sampling.

Would I go again? Well yes, if it’s hot and sunny, love the sun as you know. But if you are going in the winter time, you must be properly prepared, i.e. winter woollies, layers and boots for walking. I would have liked to have done a bit more walking around the Sasso Park but didn't have any boots for that. Apparently the locals do it regularly; even the old folks and they live to a ripe old age.

It’s essentially a nice retreat to go to.

Excellent for beach lovers... Many places to choose from and restaurants with endless options. Beach per se its not to good in Pescara but if you walk or drive 5 10 miles they are much better. The shopping it's amazing!!! Was the best part of the trip.

I read reviews saying what a nice part of Pescara this was and, wanting to get away from the noise and bustle of the main town, we headed there on a Sunday morning. To be honest, I just couldn't see the attraction. It's dirty and run-down and I don't think I'd have fancied eating anywhere even if they'd been open. Maybe because it was Sunday there were several stalls selling second-hand, car boot type paraphernalia. Perhaps if shops had been open it might have been more interesting, and it was certainly quieter than the main town. Sorry to be so negative.

Being an avid tripadviser devotee and having planned many of my summer trips around recommendations, I was unsure on whether this area was worth a visit, there were a few comments mentioning it at night but not much on the way of clarity on its day time reviews. It is worth a visit if you like a long walk from the upmarket pedestrianised centre of pescara, but it is fairly rustic and not much to look at during the day. There are some interesting architectural features but possibly nothing breathtaking. My recommendation would be to go if you want to experience the diversity of pescara and like a wander, but go with your expectations well managed.

This is a hidden gem of a neighborhood full of restaurants and bars - but only at night. If you go in the daytime hours, it will seem deserted and unused.

We couldn't miss visiting the old part of an Italian city, so we went to Pescara Vecchia as well. Not as well kept and restored as many other similar areas in other cities, this one was rather a disappointment. If we hadn't had previous experiences in other cities, we would have probably considered this to be ok, but this is not the case. The best feature are the alfresco restaurants in both Corso Manthone and Via Delle Caserne. There you can sit with the locals and enjoy authentic Italian food and wine in a friendly atmosphere.

One of the most interesting place of Pescara is, without any doubt, that part called "vecchia" which correspond to a few lively and meaningful streets: via delle Caserme, corso Manthoné, via dei Bastioni. You will not only find some of the finest restaurants and bars but also the most important spots and figures that made the history of this city. Gabriele Manthoné was one of the heroes of the uprising anti-Bourbon and where nowadays people overcrowd local restaurants and bars there once was one of the most important fortresses of the Adriatic. Also very interesting is the visit to the birthplace Gabriele d'Annunzio museum full of peculiarities and excellently well cared. In conclusion, Pescara Vecchia is not only place of amusement and wine and culinary traditions, but also a place full of culture.

One of my favourite part of Pescara, its historic centre has come back to life in the last years after decades of semi-abandon. Now it's the place where you can enjoy the perfect evening. During winter, corso Manthoné and the near streets are full of young people going out for a drink, but it's during spring and summer that Pescara Vecchia turns itself in an elegant, quiet and relaxing neighborhood. Here you can find some of the best local cuisine restaurants. Under its buildings, an entire roman town is sleeping. Don't forget to visit the interesting "Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo", hosted in the XVI century borbonic prison, or the birthplace of Gabriele D'Annunzio.
