Giulianova is a coastal town and "comune" in the province of Teramo of central Italy.

Geography

The town lies in the north of the Abruzzo region, between the Salinello and the Tordino rivers. Giulianova is split between the Paese, the historic town up in the hills, and the lido, the more recent development down by the beach.

History

In pre-Roman times, the Praetutii tribe had a settlement called Castrum Novum in the vicinity of Giulianova. In the Middle Ages, the population of Castrum Novum, then called Castrum divi Flaviani, were transported to a new town at Giulianova.

Tourism

Tourism plays a big part in the town's economy. The town beaches between the Salinello river and the Tordino are some of the best in the Abruzzo region. The town boasts many beachfront hotels, many boasting a three-star plus ranking. The town is a summer retreat for people from large cities like Rome and Milan, as well as German and French tourists.
