beach, sandy, mostly free but a hike out of town. It's 112 kms southwest of Rome,
en route for Naples.
of the best beaches near-ish Rome, Terracina's is long, fairly
wide and offers plenty of space that is pay-parasol free, yet is within
easy reach of cold drinks or simple meals from beach cafés.
The new town is quiet and pleasant but the old part, Centro Storico, offers some grand Roman remains and winding medieval streets, but is not immediately adjacent
to the sea so a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk on a tree-lined boulevard will be necessary to get wet.

Getting to Terracina town from Rome
Direct trains are infrequent and unreliable. BUT, a good option is to combine train and bus. Take a slow, stopping train on the Rome-Naples line to Monte S. Bagio station. The Cotral bus to Terracina stops on the other side of the road and takes 15 minutes. You can buy a ticket in the news kiosk beside the station.
- Buses, specifically Cotral Bus Services, run from Rome EUR Fermi station and take two hours.
