Passport / Visa

Italy can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

The best seasons to enjoy Pescara are probably spring and summer. In July and August it can get quite hot (rarely more than 86°F), but the weather is perfect for days at the beach and long swims, and the nightlife is vibrant. If you're planning to visit the city and the nearby areas, and maybe to do some excursions, go in May, June or September, when the weather is fine and nature is at its best.

Public Transport

Pescara itself is fairly small, so it is unlikely visitors will need to use the bus system. But if you do, you can buy tickets from newsagents around town. The bus station is found next to the train station, Stazione Centrale. There is a direct bus line to Rome (Roma Tiburtina) via Pescara Centrale, taking about two and a half hours. Buses also leave for Naples from here. You also find three main train stations from where you can travel to an array of Italian destinations: Pescara Centrale, Pescara Porta Nuova, Pescara San Marco. Porta Nuova is mainly used for ferry connections.


Traffic can be a problem in Pescara, but if you need to hail a taxi look for the white or yellow cars with a taxi sign on the roof. Before leaving make sure that the meter is turned on. Be warned that a number of Pescara taxis charge a night supplement.
