Featured events in Abruzzo

 2023-05-14 - When thinking of Italy, the city of Pescara is not the first to come to mind. Yet, Pescara is the most populous city in the Abruzzo region, and is one of the top ten economic, commercial, and tourist centers on the Adriatic coast, a popular seaside Summer resort featuring a shoreline that extends for more than 20 kilometers (12 miles), and home of the Ponte del Mare (the largest pedestrian and cycle bridge in Italy). The Maratonina del mare features a competitive half marathon and a fun run 10k course through the city that was the birthplace of Gabriele D'Annunzio (one of the most prominent figures in Italian literature) and Ennio Flaiano (best known for co-writing "La Dolce Vita" with Italian director Federico Fellini).
