The Lazio region
The region is steeped in history and culture all around. Formia itself is a beautiful chic Italian town surrounded on three sides by the spectacular Aurunci Hills and overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Within driving distance of Formia are Rome, Naples, Gaeta and Sperlonga. Rome is one hour away by train and can cost as little as €15 return to get there and back. This town really does have it all. Designer shops, traditional southern Italian markets, restaurants serving delicious Southern Italian food at prices you won't believe and beaches and views to die for. This is an area which has something to offer all year round.
There are excellent beaches in Formia, Gaeta, and Sperlonga. All water sports are practised.
If you have children, then the Water Parks nearby are a must.
Thermal site (Suio Terme) is 25 km away. You may enjoy the great and healthy for the skin thermal water with massages and spa treatments.
Historical sites are all around; in particular very interesting visit are to the Roman Cistern, Villa di Tiberio, Cicerone and his daughter graves and medieval suburb of Formia and Gaeta.
In the summer Formia never sleeps: the magnificent roman amphitheratre at Minturnae puts on open air operatic and theatrial productions throughout the summer months. Just a short walk from two of our Sperlonga beach resorts the open air summer theatre, provides entertainment for the entire season for people of all ages: opera, neapolitan songs, classical concerts, pop and rock concerts, traditional folk dancers and more.
The port at Formia is approximately 1 Km. You can take a ferry or jetfoil to the islands of Ponza and Ventotene, where the sea water is a beautiful deep blue and there are caves and grottos to explore all around.
This region of Italy has Feste and Sagre all year round. A festa is traditionally a religious festival, commemorating the town's local patron saint. During Festa time, towns and villages in the local area have their entertainment programme which can range from funfairs for the children and openair concerts and street dancing.
The sagre are also a type of festival but they focus on food; each town, village or suburb has its yearly 'sagra' which celebrates its culinary speciality; obviously there are ample free samples available. The traditional Italian Mediterranean diet has its roots in this area of Italy, so it is very easy to eat well and healthily in this region of Italy. The Formia area has several 'sagre' - Mozzarella, Salsiccia, Pasticcio, Fresella and seafood of all types.
The food in this area is recognized worldwide as being among the best in Italy. The Italian Mediterranean diet is famous worldwide for its healthful qualities and wholesome natural ingredients. Real Pizza (baked in stone ovens made with 100% buffalo mozzarella), fish, the freshest sea-food imaginable, pasta of all kinds and roasted vegetables to die for, must be sampled.
Visitors to the area in the Christmas season must see the 'Presepe Vivente' in the local villages (it literally means the 'Living Crib'.)
Visitors to the area in the Easter season must visit the town of Sessa Aurunca (20 km away) to see the Good Friday and Easter Monday Processions. On Good Friday the entire town processes through the town for 8 hours culminating in four enormous bonfires being lit in the town's incredible medieval town square. It feels more like 1408 than 2008.
