The central city of Italy's Abruzzo region, Pescara is one of the most popular tourism and resort destinations located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Visitors divide their time equally between lounging on the miles of beautiful beaches and partying hard in the bars and clubs when the sun goes down. It's also a popular destination for fishing trips, as well as a base for those looking to go hiking in the nearby mountain range.

Peak and Low Seasons in Pescara

May to August is the peak season in Pescara. The weather is nice, and much of the party-oriented crowd is out of school and ready to live it up at the local clubs. On hot weekends, Italians who live inland also head to the beaches in droves to lounge and cool off.

You'll see crowds diminish in the winter since the weather prevents fishing and sunning at the beach, but there's still a lively party scene in the city. It merely shifts away from the beaches and toward the city center during the cold months. Still, the colder it is, the more likely you are to find deep hotel discounts in the area.

Major events in the area include the week around Easter, the Flaiano Prizes film festival in June, and the Pescara Jazz Festival in July (one of the largest in all of Europe).

Hotels Near Popular Destinations in Pescara

As you might expect, most of Pescara's hotels are on or not far from the beach. You'll find the largest concentration on the roads that run near the water, but there are options scattered all over the city.

Pescara has an enormous amount of lodging choices available, and no matter what it is you want to be close to, you'll probably find something within your budget. This extends beyond Pescara to the entire Abruzzo area, which is heavily tourist-focused.

Luxury Hotels in Pescara

Pescara's swankiest options are the Best Western Hotel Plaza, the G Hotel, the Gardenia, the Carlton and the Hotel Victoria. If you don't mind staying a few miles outside of Pescara, you might also try the Villa Maria Hotel & Spa or the SHotel. Expect normal rack rates to run around $75 to $150 USD per night.

Though Pescara has literally hundreds of hotels and guest houses, it is a little thin for high-end luxury options. Most visitors are more local and seeking a more budget-minded experience (and probably planning on being at the beach or out partying the whole time anyway). There's never any need to worry about finding a decent and acceptable room at any time of year if you're on a luxury budget, however.

Budget Hotels in Pescara

Though Pescara can get expensive when it is slammed with tourists, there are usually reasonably priced options around simply because there are so many hotels, guest houses and villas available in the city.

During the off-season, you can easily find a very decent budget hotel with private bed and bath for under $40 on any given night. Prices may also get nearly this low even during the warmer months, simply due to the sheer volume of available rooms in the area.

Il mare ha un modo tutto suo di far abboccare gli amanti e prenderli con se, poggiarli davanti, sulla riva bagnata dalle sue acque e cantagli storie. Così mi viene da raccontarvi di Pescara, città marina, di pescatori e di luci chiare, di silenzi profondi che sono altri modi di essere del mare, di un borgo antico tutto da scoprire, dai prezzi accessibili e dagli ottimi ristoranti. Un week end qui è alla portata di tutti, coppie con bambini, coppie che vogliano regalarsi due giorni di romantico mare.
