Cheap Flights to Pescara

Pescara overview

When is the best time to fly to Pescara?

Pescara enjoys a different blend of seasons. It has hot summers and cold winters with light and heavy showers almost all throughout the year. December and January can be too cold even for visitors from cold regions, however, these months offer cheap flights to Pescara and great discounts on accommodation. Once February hits, the weather starts to warm up and the tourist season commences. February through April are the best months to visit and when travellers will find increased rates for accommodation and flights to Pescara.

The months of May through July are the hot season, but that doesn’t mean this is off-season, as some visitors prefer the warmer temperatures. The city hosts a great music festival in July: Pescara Jazz Festival. Tourists continue to pour into Pescara until November, just before the harsh cold weather descends upon the city.

Pescara overview

The coastal city of Pescara showcases the best that Mother Nature has to offer: views of the water and mountain peaks on two sides. The city is located in the Abruzzo region of Italy, where the history of the local people spans more than 4,000 years.

The Adriatic Sea is one of the main reasons why visitors take flights to Pescara, as are the lovely beaches that line the city. A long coastline offers plenty of space to spread out, and while not all beaches are free, the views can’t be beat.

The neighbouring mountains are worth spending a day to explore, too. The nearby range of La Bella Dormentata, or “The Sleeping Beauty,” offers a natural park where visitors can spend a day wandering through the trails immersed in Italy’s natural beauty.

Of course, one of the best ways to enjoy Italy is by treating yourself to fine food and wine, and visitors will find plenty of cafés and restaurants within the city that fit the bill. The public square of Piazza Rinascita is a great place to find a quaint café to spend a relaxing afternoon. Afterwards, visitors can head to the city centre for a shopping spree or check out local museums like the Basilio Cascella Museum, known for its historic art and furniture.

If a daytrip is in order, the nearby village of Chieti is well worth a visit. Coastal views, historic architecture and a leisurely pace make it the perfect addition to a trip to Pescara.

Getting around Pescara

Public transportation consists of a trolleybus, which connects passengers with all of the main attractions throughout the city. The beach area is easily accessible by foot. As the weather gets colder, most of the events move to the city centre, where no transportation is needed to get around.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Flights to Pescara will arrive at Abruzzo International Airport (PSR), about 2.5 miles (4 km) from the city centre. The local bus system is connected to the airport and also connects travellers with the local railway. Taxis are also available to hire, and it’s about a 10-minute ride into the centre of Pescara. Expect set fares to travel into town.
