Pescara has a reputation for being a party city, whether on the beaches during Summer or further into the centre of town in Winter. There are many famous discos in the town which are worth a visit.
The poet Gabriele D'Annunzio was a famous resident of Pescara and contributed much to its current wealth. D'Annunzio is perhaps best known for being a forerunner of Mussolini's Fascist party. He took over a small town and made it his own private dictatorship for a few years whilst the Italian government dithered over what to do with him. He also dropped a chamber pot of carrots onto the roof of the Italian parliament in protest over Italy's defeat in World War I.
Pescara is the biggest city in the Abruzzo region of Italy and offers regular connections to the Croatian city of Split. Ferries to and from Pescara can be booked online with AFerry.

The boat wasn't very comfortable. Leaving Split, there was enough room for everybody, but after Starigrad, staff started to wake us up (!!), asking to make extra space for new passengers! While there was a whole upper floor closed, which was strange. After half of hour dispute with staff, passengers finally managed to get to that upper floor!
