Pescara (Abruzzo)

Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The main commercial street of the city is Corso Umberto I, which runs from Piazza della Repubblica and reaches the seacoast at Piazza Primo Maggio. The rectangle that it forms with Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and Via Nicola Fabrizi encloses the main shopping district, where several of the best fashion shops are located. Corso Manthonè, the course of the old Pescara, has, for many years, been the center of the nightlife of the city. To the immediate south of the mouth of the river is the marina. The territory of Pescara, as with the other four provinces in Abruzzo, preserves an important natural endowment: the National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga, the Majella National Park, the natural reserves of Pineta di Santa Filomena, Valle dell'Orfento, Lama Bianca di Sant'Eufemia a Maiella and Piana Grande della Majelletta.

Any recommendations for a good Geometra in the Capestrano (L'Aquila, Abruzzo) area who speaks English? We are purchasing a house in need of renovation.

Does anyone in Abruzzo have a contact for Fineco bank? My old contact information is no longer valid. Molto grazie !

We are about to get the keys for an apartment within a house near L'Aquila, which is a holiday home for ourselves and family. We do not intend to rent this out.  However we will need the services of a property management when we are not there to pay utility bills etc.
