A renowned seaside resort, perfect for a relaxing holiday for families, Roseto degli Abruzzi is located between the two rivers Tordino and Vomano, and strikes the visitor with its fine, late 19th-century villas. Roseto of the Abruzzi officially saw the light as a municipality on 22 May 1860, on the site of a small rural borough called "Le Quote" that rose near the coast in the early 19th century, forming aprt of the medieval village of Montepagano located on the top of the hill. Then in 1887, after the inauguration of the railway station, it took the name of Rosburgo: in this period the first hotel was built by enologist Giovanni Thaulero. Very quickly Rosburgo became an established tourist resort and it was one of the first Aziende di Soggiorno in the Region and today 42 beach facilities, 37 hotels, 10 campsites welcome a large tourism with their century-old, local hoteliers' tradition. Only in 1927 the name was changed from Rosburgo tto the current Roseto degli Abruzzi, chosen because od the presence of fabulous rosebushes used once to embellish the outside of fishermen's houses.
Another important center included in the municipality of Roseto is Cologna, of Roman origin, often mentioned in medieval documents above all in relation to the presence of the Monastery of San Salvatore in Bozzino. Tourism is the main resource today even if there are on the territory also food-processing firms and wineries, as well as the production of cereals, beet roots and wine grapes
