Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Despite its relatively small size, Pescara's old town is a true gem. Its main streets are Corso Manthoné, via delle Caserme and via dei Bastioni (the latter follows the same path as the ancient Roman road connecting Pescara to Rome), while Piazza Garibaldi is the heart of the old town. Here, in a 500 m range, visitors may find three gorgeous museums (the Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo, hosted in the 500 year old barracks of the ancient fortress, displaying the history of people and traditions in Abruzzo; Gabriele D'Annunzio's birthplace museum; and the Cascella Museum, which contains a gorgeous collection of Abruzzese paintings from the XIX and XX century), archaeological sites (es. Santa Gerusalemme, a medieval church built on top of a Roman temple), the cathedral of Saint Cetteo, as well as dozens a m a z i n g restaurants serving traditional local cuisine (Taverna 58 and Pescì are must visit) as well as foreign (Chef Nestor and Giappo for Japanese, Omar Kayyam for Persian). Moreover, the whole area is literally full of archaeological remains waiting to be restored and brought back to life.

Pescara is the perfect size for a weekend excursion. Loads of good cafés and restaurants and great shopping! Beaches are beautiful and skiing is only 100 km away in the mountains.

We couldn't miss visiting the old part of an Italian city, so we went to Pescara Vecchia as well. Not as well kept and restored as many other similar areas in other cities, this one was rather a disappointment. If we hadn't had previous experiences in other cities, we would have probably considered this to be ok, but this is not the case. The best feature are the alfresco restaurants in both Corso Manthone and Via Delle Caserne. There you can sit with the locals and enjoy authentic Italian food and wine in a friendly atmosphere.

There are really old towns around Italy, this place is small and it doesn't represent the old Italy.

One of the most interesting place of Pescara is, without any doubt, that part called "vecchia" which correspond to a few lively and meaningful streets: via delle Caserme, corso Manthoné, via dei Bastioni. You will not only find some of the finest restaurants and bars but also the most important spots and figures that made the history of this city. Gabriele Manthoné was one of the heroes of the uprising anti-Bourbon and where nowadays people overcrowd local restaurants and bars there once was one of the most important fortresses of the Adriatic. Also very interesting is the visit to the birthplace Gabriele d'Annunzio museum full of peculiarities and excellently well cared. In conclusion, Pescara Vecchia is not only place of amusement and wine and culinary traditions, but also a place full of culture.

One of my favourite part of Pescara, its historic centre has come back to life in the last years after decades of semi-abandon. Now it's the place where you can enjoy the perfect evening. During winter, corso Manthoné and the near streets are full of young people going out for a drink, but it's during spring and summer that Pescara Vecchia turns itself in an elegant, quiet and relaxing neighborhood. Here you can find some of the best local cuisine restaurants. Under its buildings, an entire roman town is sleeping. Don't forget to visit the interesting "Museo delle Genti d'Abruzzo", hosted in the XVI century borbonic prison, or the birthplace of Gabriele D'Annunzio.

I read reviews saying what a nice part of Pescara this was and, wanting to get away from the noise and bustle of the main town, we headed there on a Sunday morning. To be honest, I just couldn't see the attraction. It's dirty and run-down and I don't think I'd have fancied eating anywhere even if they'd been open. Maybe because it was Sunday there were several stalls selling second-hand, car boot type paraphernalia. Perhaps if shops had been open it might have been more interesting, and it was certainly quieter than the main town. Sorry to be so negative.

Having my sister's family living there, we often visit Pescara, and the old Town is one of our favorite spots. There are a lot of nice places serving regional food and it is also a nice place to have a walk among historical buildings...
