Pescara The Essential
A port and seaside resort on the Adriatic, and standing at the foot of the rugged, spectacular Abruzzi hills, this modern town was the birthplace of the symbolist poet and dandy Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) who aimed to make his life a work of art. Admirers of the poet can visit the estate at Gardone Riviera on the banks of Lake Garda where he lived and is buried.
