Welcome Open and Willing City.

Roseto degli Abruzzi, also known with the tourist appellation “Rose Beach”, is one of the many cities that lies along the Adriatic Coast. It is the daughter of Montepagano, the ancient village that is overhung by a mild hill. The main centre of the valley of the River Vomano, situated in front of Italy’s massive Gran Sasso, before obtaining the name it has today, it was called “Le Quote”, from 22 May 1860 to 22 May 1887 and “Rosburgo” from 22 May 1887 to 20 February 1927.  The territory had already been inhabited in the Roman Epoch; in fact some of the localities of the territory are mentioned in numerous documents dating back to the medieval period. Today Roseto degli Abruzzi is the main coastal centre in the Province of Teramo and one of its most popular sea resorts along the coastline of Abruzzi. It is an open and solid city, with a strong, tourist vocation.

Situated in the centre of Italy, Roseto is in fact easy to arrive to thanks to good road and railway connections, and its nearness to the airports in Rome, Pescara and Ancona.  Its rich nature and its climate, mild and gentle, as its inhabitants, make Roseto degli Abruzzi the ideal place for a calm holiday, in contact with the perfume of the sea and the hills and the taste of the exquisite oenology and gastronomy of Teramo Abruzzi.  It is perfect for a relaxing holiday, opened to culture, art and nature.

 

Benvenuti Città aperta e solidale.

Roseto degli Abruzzi, conosciuta anche con l’appellativo turistico di “Lido delle Rose” è una città della fascia costiera adriatica, figlia di Montepagano, antico borgo che la sovrasta da una dolce collina.  Principale centro della vallata del fiume Vomano, posta di fronte al massiccio del Gran Sasso d’Italia, prima dell’odierna denominazione, si chiamò “Le Quote”, dal 22 maggio 1860 al 22 maggio 1887 e “Rosburgo”, dal 22 maggio 1887 al 20 febbraio 1927.  Il territorio fu abitato già in epoca romana, visto che di alcune località del suo territorio si trova menzione in numerosi documenti di epoca medievale.  Oggi Roseto degli Abruzzi è il primo centro costiero della provincia di Teramo e una delle località balneari più frequentate della riviera abruzzese. Una città aperta e solidale, con una spiccata vocazione turistica.  Posta al centro dell’Italia, Roseto è infatti facilmente raggiungibile grazie ai buoni collegamenti viari, ferroviari e alla vicinanza degli aeroporti di Roma, Pescara e Ancona.  La natura ricca e il clima, mite e gentile come i suoi abitanti, fanno di Roseto degli Abruzzi il luogo ideale per una vacanza tranquilla, a contatto con i profumi del mare e della collina e i sapori della grande enogastronomia dell’Abruzzo teramano. Una vacanza rilassante e aperta alla cultura, all’arte e alla natura.
