Terracina

Terracina is an ancient beach town located around 60 km south of Rome and 60 km north of Naples. The town 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. However, the old town 'Centro Storico' also offers many attractions worth seeing, including Piazza del Municipio, the Cathedral (built over the Roman temple of Augustus) and the Museo Civico. Terracina's most interesting and striking sight is the Temple of Jupiter Anxur. Anxur was the ancient Volscian name for the town and it is generally assumed that the sanctuary was dedicated to Jupiter. The main part of the temple is gone, but the impressive vaulted base can be seen for miles. Terracina also has a few bars, restaurants and shops with reasonable pricing.
