The sister city of Notaresco is Plonsk in Poland. Adjacent comunes include Atri, Castellalto, Cellino Attanasio, Morro d'Oro, Mosciano Sant'Angelo, and Roseto degli Abruzzi.

Conclusive evidence documents the existence of the town in the early centuries of the Christian era, though there is evidence of settlements in previous eras too. The layout of the town is typical of a medieval settlement which includes thick city walls accompanied by high and narrow windows. From the 14th to the 18th century Notaresco fell under the rule of the Acquaviva family.
