Beaches · Outdoor Activities · Nature & Parks
Roseto degli Abruzzi, more commonly Roseto, is a town and comune of the province of Teramo in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It is a beach resort on the Adriatic Sea and has about 24,000 inhabitants. Geographically, Roseto is positioned on estuaries of the Vomano and Tordino Rivers. It is the second largest city in the province. In the last decade the city has witnessed a good deal of growth in the quarters of Borsacchio slightly to the north, Campo a Mare along the seacoast and Voltarrosto to the west.GeographyA major north - south rail line running along the coast passes through Roseto connecting it to the provincial capitals of Pescara and Teramo. Towns nearby include Atri, Giulianova, Morro d'Oro, Mosciano Sant'Angelo, Notaresco and Pineto. Roseto is a popular and highly developed seaside location known throughout Italy and the world. It is sometimes referred to as Lido delle Rose (Beach of the Roses). More recently it has been associated with the "Bandiera Blu" (The Blue Banner). Its beaches are pristine white.HistoryThe name of the city was decreed to be Rosburgo by decree of King Umberto I of Italy in 1877. Later the name fell into disfavor, especially in military circles, because it sounded Austrian, a bitter enemy of Italy during World War I, and in 1927 the city was rechristened with its current name. The name derives in part from the large numbers and varieties of rose and oleander trees which grace the byways and balconies of the city's residents. Tourism is the main economical activity in terms of revenue generated. Roseto's coastline, including an area known as Cologna, has more than 10km of beaches available for swimming and other water activities.
