Pescara International Airport Car Rental
Pescara Airport, known as Abruzzo Pasquale Liberi International Airport, is about 3 km from Pescara and the municipality of San Giovanni Teatino. The airport dates back to 1917, when the military airfield by the Royal Italian Army was built in Via Tiburtina with the purpose of defending the Adriatic city by bombings. In 1921 the airfield was named after the memory of Pasquale Liberi, an important aviator of Pescara and, over the years, it has undergone many enlargement and restructuration works.
Nowadays, it is the only international airport in Abruzzo region, connected to the main Abruzzese cities through important thoroughfares, such as the highway A25, the Adriatic ighway and the SS5 via Tiburtina Valeria, and through the railroad lines which connect it to Pescara, Roma, Sulmona and many cities on the Adriatic side. Many airlines operate at Pescara Airport and connect Abruzzo to many Italian cities, such as Bergamo, Alghero, Milan, and to foreign destinations, such as London, Paris, Tirana.
Pescara Old Town, on the traces of D’Annunzio
Once booked online your rental car with RentalUp, you can directly pick it up at Abruzzo Pasquale Liberi International Airport and set off to discover the region of Abruzzo, starting from Pescara.
One of the first attractions you must visit surely is the Pineta d’Avalos, the famous pine forest of D’Annunzio, made famous by the rhymes of the poet, located in the south of the city. Heading north with your rental car, you will have the opportunity to admire the beauties of the old town, where you can find the museum of the birthplace of D’Annunzio.
The museum in within a XVIII-century building, which has been declared as national monument for almost a century. Once crossed the bridge Ponte del Mare, you get to the most modern part of the city. Among the various buildings of huge architectonical interest, we must mention the former factory Aurum, enlarged by the architect Giovanni Michelucci at the end of the 1930s to adapt to the so-called Modern Movement.
Currently. In the former Aurum there is a multi-functional cultural centre, which hosts conventions, workshops and exhibitions.
How to reach Pescara
Pescara is a receptacle of culture, art, food tradition and architectonical beauties: little considered in the tourist itineraries, it would deserve to be more appreciated, because it is one of the Italian cities with the highest standards of liveability.
This is due, among other things, to the kindness and hospitability of local people. During a vacation in Pescara, you absolutely must visit the very beautiful Cathedral of San Cetteo, built between 1933 and 1938, strongly wanted by Gabriele D’Annunzio.
The Church of the Sacred Heart, in the middle of the city centre, is also particularly beautiful; it was built at the end of the XIX century in Neo-Gothic style. You cannot neither miss the Bagno Borbonico, the ancient prison of the Kingdom of the two Sicilies, which preserves the remains of the Norman and Byzantine walls.
Lastly, you must taste, in some of the numerous tavernas of the area, the typical local dishes: the classical arrosticini made from lamb meat, but also spaghetti with seafood and egg meatballs.
