While the capital of a region usually turns out to be its largest city, that’s not the case in Abruzzo. Here, the capital is L’Aquila, but the biggest city in the region is the coastal city of Pescara. It’s an important port city as well as a popular beach resort. You may be passing through en route to Croatia or Greece by boat, or you may be inclined to stay for a few days and soak up the sun. Either way, you’ll need a place to stay!
