The Lazio region
Lazio is in centre of Italy, on the western coast. Rome is of course one of the principal tourist destination in the region, but Lazio is full of archaeological sites. Major temple complexes can be visited in Palestrina and Terracina, where a massive temple overlooks the sea. Wealthy Romans have always liked villas in the countryside, and there are ruins of villas belonging to Roman emperors at Anzio (Nero), Sperlonga (where Tiberius dined in a decorated grotto) as well as Tivoli, where the most luxurious villa of all was built by Hadrian.
The Province of Latina runs for 100 km along the coast, between Rome and Naples, and includes stretches of sandy beach and charming resorts like Terracina, Sperlonga, Gaeta , S.Felice Circeo and the Pontine Islands.
Fossanova Abbey located inland, not far from Terracina, is the oldest Italian Cistercian Abbey . The cloisters of the Abbey are also well worth a visit. St Thomas Aquinas died in the abbey in 1274.
In the midst of the Pontine Plain, there is The Garden of Ninfa a romantic oasis of fertility. Set amongst the ruins of the medieval town of Ninfa, the garden sits, emerald-like, at the feet of the Lepini Hills. Public openings are on the first Saturday and Sunday of each month from April to October; and the third Sunday of April, May and June.
Terracina is a pleasant seaside resort in the south of the Lazio region, between Rome(100 km) and Naples(120 km). It was an important port on the Roman Appian Way, and the site of a major temple to Jupiter. Nowadays the modern town spreads out on the plain below the hills, along a wide sandy beach which attracts many summer visitors. In the summer ( July) there is an important traditional event connected with the sea, (sea processions of the Madonna del Carmelo with final fireworks).
The modern part of Terracina is pleasant, with wide tree-lined boulevards leading to the beach of the port. The sea and the sand are the town's main attraction for many of its Italian summer visitors.
Ferries depart from the port for the Pontine Islands . If you want to make a one-day tour, visit Naples, Pompei, or Rome.
Terracina is also a good place for shopping, women will love a number of outstanding clothes shops. There is also a covered market where you can buy fruit, vegetables, fish at reasonable prices.
For more charm and historical interest, there is the Centro Storico, the old part of the town that is situated on a hill. The heart of historical Terracina is Piazza del Municipio, a pretty piazza containing paving stones from the Roman Forum, the town cathedral, the town council and the archaeological museum. Close by you can also see an ancient paved stretch of the Appian Way. The Cathedral was built over a Roman temple to Augustus, and is an attractive building composed of a mixture of styles. The small Museo Civico contains ancient sculptures found in the area.
Further on, the winding medieval streets offer a pleasant opportunity for strolling and discovering nice shops and restaurants. A guide can be picked up from the museum which will help you visit the ruins.
Terracina most unusual and striking site is the Temple of Jupiter Anxur. The Temple was part of the monumental complex of the ancient acropolis, situated on the top of Monte S. Angelo with a wonderful view of the entire gulf.

"Impressions of rest in casa cancelli"
Я отдыхала с дочкой и сестрой. Но можно расположиться и в пятерем. Аппартаменты очень уютные. Находятся в самом центре старого города. Есть замечательный балкончик с видом нм башню , в другие окна видно море, благодаря чему мы увидели замечательный фейверк. В таком месте чувствуешь атмосферу страны. В квартире не жарко, кондиционер не нужен, вентеляторы тоже не понадобились. Хозяин нас встретил на остановке, но потом как оказалось мы были совсем рядом, надо было пройти чуть вперед и подняться в горку. На кухне есть все необходимое если вы хотите готовить, большой супермаркей в минутах 15. Если не хотите готовить, прямо во дворе и рядом есть мног приятные кафе. До моря удачный путь мимо многих исторический мест. Есть конечно небольшая горка, но где в Италии их нет. Вначале казалась большая, потом вообще не замечалась. Опять же приятно приехать без лишнего веса. Свободный wifi есть на площади рядом. Удобно так же добраться до автобуса на станцию Монте S.Biago - если без чемодана по лестнице направо от фонтана, с чемоданом по дороге чуть дольше. Билеты покупаються в баре или газетном киоске. Мы съездили два раза в Неаполь ( остров Капри, Везувий, Помпеи) и Гаета. В самом старом городе рекомендую погулять по маленьким улочкам, виды открываются замечательные. В Аnxur мы дошли пешком, но там дорога для машин, пешком далековато, но видели автобус. Рекомендую посетить, виды очаровательные. Желаю Вам приятного отдыха. Очень надеюсь вернуться в Террачину.

"Culture, Beach and Practicality - all in one"
We stayed at this apartment for just over a week and would definitely recommend it. The apartment was clean, tasteful, spacious and well-appointed. All mod-cons and linens etc, with the welcome addtion of some beach toys for the kids. The place felt comfortable, yet stylish and every time you opened a window, the views over the town and down to the sea were mindblowing. Only 2 down-sides - the balcony is very small, only 2 can sit out at a time and the apartment itself is on the second floor so lots of stairs to climb. Having said that - the view from the balcony is GORGEOUS and it's perfect for enjoying a glass of wine after the kids are in bed. As for the stairs - my children were 4 and 7 when we stayed here and they had no problems getting up and down. (Might be a bit grim with a pushchair though). Around and about - with 2 small kids it's more like a 25 minute walk to the beach and there a huge amount of stone steps down from the Centro Historico to be negotiated. Also, road crossings are generally not respected by Italian drivers, so crossing the roads with kids can be hair-raising. We did make it there and back once, but after that used the car. Parking is available fairly (max - 1min walk) near both the apartment and the beach. The beach was busy but clean and safe, and full of locals, rather than other tourists - so the air was filled with lovely Italian chatter. The lower town is full of stylish but 'touristy' shops, though not too pricey, and plenty of places to eat. The old town, where the apartment is, feels deliciously cool and serene by comparison. We ate in a few places just a minute from the apartment and the food was wonderful. There is a Roman Square round the corner from the apartment that my children loved to play in and run around in the evening and then have gelato at the coffee shop there. There was also a museum there which my kids found fascinating. Practically speaking - there were a few bread/ fruit/veg shops within easy walking distance from the apartment and a couple of big supermarkets for a more substantial shop on the outskirts of the lower town. Further afield - we took the train to Rome on one day but it was 2 hours late - this of course, is more a reflection on the Italian transport system than this apartment and when the train finally arrived, the service was ok - but bear in mind that a hire car is recommended for this property and I would say essential if you have a young family. As long as you are prepared for the steps - I would recommend unreservedly this apartment. We couldn't have imagined a place more beautiful and bursting with culture, excellent value for the money. The owners are friendly and helpful too. I stupidly locked myself out one night and the people at the restauant next door rang the owner of our flat and he soon turned up to rescue us. The only thing we would have liked to add would be a single futon mattress to put in the second bedroom. This would have allowed both children to sleep in one room, leaving the other bedroom and the living space free for our use in the evenings. I think if you choose this apartment, you will be in for a wonderful holiday.
