Terracina (Lazio)

Terracina is a city of the province of Latina, in Lazio, central Italy. It is 76 kilometres (47 miles) southeast of Rome by rail and 56 kilometres (35 mi) by the Via Appia by car.

Terracina appears in ancient sources with two names: the Latin Tarracina and the Volscian Anxur. The latter is the name of Jupiter himself as a youth, and was the tutelary god of the city, venerated on the Mons Neptunius (current Monte S. Angelo), where a temple dedicated to him still exists. The modern town occupies the site of the old one. The present piazza is the ancient Roman forum, and the Roman pavement of slabs of travertine with the inscription A. AEMILIUS A. F. in letters once filled in with bronze, is well preserved.

The Festival of the Sea takes place in July and occupies an important place in Terracina's folklore, linked to the town's long fishing history.

@deana.pitt asks:

Hi, I'm looking for some accurate information regarding the bus from Orvieto to Bagnoregio. I've tried the Cotral website, but the search never works for me. I found an typed schedule from a blog, but have no idea if it is still current or accurate.

@Pozzallo22 asks:

Can someone give me restaurant recommendations in Rome? Thank you.

My husband and I live in New York.  His relatives have informed us that inherited property in Broccostella has been sold and they have an ‘assegno circolare’ in his name for his share of the sale.
