The Italian seaside town of Anzio is just one hour away from the nation’s capital and its situated in the Lazio region. The port settlement is an extremely popular summer retreat for professionals looking for an escape from Rome. The beautiful setting of jagged cliff tops and perfectly manicured beaches, has attracted people to the area since the days of Ancient Rome, with emperors Augustus and Nero establishing villas along this stretch of coast.
A number of beaches and hotels line the coast and in Porto di Anzio you can find a number of Gelato shops and exquisite restaurants, serving delicious local seafood dishes. There are a number of sites of historical significance in the town. The remains of many Roman villas can still be seen along the coastline and Anzio’s importance as an Allied landing area during World War Two still resonates, with the Anzio Beachhead British Military Cemetery and a Beachhead Museum in the town.
Access to and from the seaside resort is simple for visitors, with fantastic routes via rail and road. Hour long train services between Anzio and Roma Termini Railway Station, in the heart of the capital, are regular. Motorists can take the roads through the Italian countryside via the SR207, which takes you to within metres of the passenger terminal.
There is one route which operates from Anzio and that travels to Ponza, the largest of the Pontine islands, off the Italian coast. The Laziomar service sails to the tranquil island a number of times each week.
Ponza is the largest of the Pontine Islands which is an archipelago that lies off the Italian coast between the cities of Rome and Naples. Ponza is well known for its Blue Grottoes that were created by the Etruscans and include the Serpents Grotto and the Roman Gallery, which is a Roman tunnel that connects the town of Ponza to the now closed large sandy beach of Chiaia di Luna. Popular sites with visitors are the many archaeological ruins that can be seen that include Egyptian, Canaanite, Greek and Phoenician necropoli ruins in the middle of the island. Also on parts of the island are Roman ruins that are mixed with Etruscan ruins. A large statue called Il Mamozio ("The Mummy") or Il Mitreo, meaning miter or priest's hat, is a 3,000 year old marble statue and was found in the harbour. The statue depicts a local Etrurian consul, it is now displayed in a museum in Napoli behind protective plastic, where it was reunited with its head. It is the oldest known Etruscan statue of its kind and is extremely rare.
Ferry services from Ponza depart to Naples, Terracina, Formia and Anzio; there are also hydrofoils (aliscafo) to Anzio and Formia that have travel time of about 75 minutes.
