Montesilvano ([ˌmontesilˈvaːno]) is a town and comune of the province of Pescara in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The name Montesilvano is apparently derived from the Latin which means woody hill (woods - silva).
The town is located on the Adriatic Sea and offers a wide choice of accommodation (hotels, rental flats, B&B) and entertainment both for Italian and foreign tourists.
Montesilvano is situated immediately north of Pescara, to which it is physically connected. Montesilvano is divided into Montesilvano Marina and Montesilvano Colle. The former is the lively, crowded seaside resort; the latter the original medieval comune and citadel. The mouths of the Piomba and the Saline rivers are directly north of the town.Giò Di Tonno, singer, and 'Big Artists' winner in 2008 at the Sanremo Music Festival
