Your Destination —
For sun seekers & beach lovers - Located at the mouth of the river with the same name , the city of Pescara is the capital city of the province where the famous poet Gabriele D’Annunzio was born. A modern, lively city characterised by the presence of many tourists, Pescara is nowadays a well equipped beach resort.
For the foodies - Trabocchi Coast - The Trabocchi coast corresponds to that part of the Adriatic stretch of the province of Chieti which is named after the presence of several Trabocchi: picturesque old fishing machines made from wood and built on piles , scattered along the coast. It is a very famous stretch of coast in Italy thank to its natural beauty and heterogeneity: each village on the coast keeps its own features and traditions.
Nowadays, most of these Trabocchi have been turned into real restaurants where dinner menus based on sea-food tradition, tastes and flavours from Abruzzo and from this typical part of the coast can be found. You will discover and taste delicious meals like the “scapece”, the “brodetto” and the “paranza” fried fish.
For the Wine lovers - The wine from Abruzzo is famous in Italy and all over the world for the production of the excellent Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Guided tours with wine tasting can be organised for guests all year round.
