Located about an hour from Foggia by car, Vasto is an ancient city which, according to local tradition, was founded by Diomedes - a Greek hero who fought in the Trojan War. Archaeological evidence dates back to 1300 BC, making Vasto among the oldest continually inhabited locales in Italy.

During the 19th century, Vasto underwent a significant city-wide renovation project. The historical center of the city was completely redrawn and foundations were laid for massive public housing projects, and the city was re-named Istonio by the Fascist government of Italy. After the city was liberated, its name was reverted back to Vasto and the city enjoyed considerable industrial, urban, and socio-cultural development. During this period, the city began to clean up and develop its many beaches, and restored its Roman-era thermal baths, mosaics, cisterns, and the remains of an impressive amphitheater. Thanks to its redevelopment, Vasto has become a popular scholarly city, with several national universities having campuses in the area, as well as being home to Harvard University's summer program in Italy.
