Formia is a city and commune on the Mediterranean coast of Lazio, in the province of Latina, Italy, halfway between Rome and Naples. The city is a thriving tourist destination because of its scenic location along the Mediterranean coast.
Historical evidence shows that Formia was inhabited since as far back as 500 B.C. and was founded by ancient Romans. Its name derives from the Greek Ὁρμίαι hormiai, meaning “landing place”. Formia became a well known seaside resort for the Roman aristocracy in the Republican Era and during the days of the Roman Empire.
Formia is a place full of interesting historical sites. The first to be mentioned is the Tomb of Cicero on the southwest side of the town. Cicero was a famous Roman orator, politician and philosopher who challenged Julius Caesar and opposed Mark Anthony. His hatred for Anthony had him assassinated on the Appian Way outside the town in 43 BC.
Some of the other sights include the Tower of Castellone, Remains of the Villa of Mamurra, the Church of San Giovanni Battista e Lorenzo, Church of San Luca, Church of Sant’Erasmo, etc.
Ventotene is small island in the Pontine Islands group off the west coast of Italy.
