While much of the Abruzzo region is mountainous, it does have a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea – and the most populous city in the region, Pescara, is located on the coast. Pescara is an important industrial port city for Abruzzo and Italy, and it’s also a well-known seaside resort city. It’s large enough to accommodate both facets.
Because Pescara is a large city, there’s a wide variety of accommodation options to choose from. The more expensive hotels are close to the sea, so if you’re looking to save money then looking further inland is a good bet. Also note that in addition to the more traditional hostels in Pescara, some of the places on the map below are budget hotels. These aren’t dorm-style, but they’re budget-friendly.
