THE SOUTHERN LATIUM (LAZIO)
Ponza & Ventotene islands, Gaeta, Formia, Montecassino
Riviera di Ulisse
The Backbone of the territory of South Latium is the Via Appia, one of the seven roads built by the Romans to conquer and keep quiet their Empire. Today two better ways have been built to join Naples and the South From Rome: the highway, on the back of the Appia road, far from the sea, touching the industrial towns of Frosinone and Cassino, and the via Pontina running seaside or in little distance from the coast of Latium, to touch Latina and Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo and Terracina, then changing name to Via Flacca - this too built by the Romans to reach their preferred holiday resorts - passing through Sperlonga, Gaeta, Formia, with branches to Itri and Fondi. More than a hundred km of rattling fine and white sandy beaches, quite all with umpolluted sea waters, some fragments with striking mountains sharply falling into the sea to form gorgeous inlets. Fish trattorias, good wine production, buffalo mozzarella and good cheese will not be trivial for your brief leisure.
A few km far from the Via Appia, in the midland, on the foot or in mid of the mountain chains Lepini and Aurunci the time stopped to the time past, in Monasteries and ancient peasant villages.
