Good to Know

Everything you need to know about Terracina

BARS
There are often two different pricelists. One for standing at the desk, one for being served at the table.

BEACH
Along the long beach you´ll find both private and public beach-accomodations where you rent chairs and umbrellas. There are also free spots where you can bring your own umbrella and chair.

BIRG
A cheap and very convenient ticket for travels in the region of Lazio. It´s a personal (you have to write your name and birthdate at the back) one-day-ticket. The most expensive one is BIRG 7, costs euro 10,50. With that you can use the trains, metro, trams and buses (except the ones to Fiumicino) for one day.
If you´re going to Naples you have to buy other tickets. A round trip to Naples costs around 15 euro. You can buy the tickets at the news-stand or in the bar at the bus-station.

CASH DISPENSERS
There are many in Terracina. You´ll find some in the two main streets Via Roma and Viale della Vittoria.

CINEMA
There are some cinemas in Terracina, always with brand new movies. Everything is dubbed into Italian without subtitles.

INTERNET
There are a few internet-points in Terracina. The quality and the prices differs a lot.

MARKET
Every Thursday morning (08.00-13.00) there´s a big market in Viale Europa. You can buy clothes, shoes, food, sunglasses, bags, almost everything there. Every day in the week, there´s an indoor fruit- and vegetablemarket at Via del Rio.

MUSEUMS
Some statal museums give reduction on the entrance-fee for citizens in the EU. Be sure to always bring your passport.

PHARMACY
Is in Italian "Farmacia". There are a lot of them in Terracina. If it´s closed, you find a message on the door where to find one which is open.

PETROL
Is expensive in Italy. "FAI DA TE" means that you have to do the filling yourself, "SERVITO" means that you´ll be helped.

POSTCARDS
There are two different kinds of stamps. "Prioritaria" is more expensive. "Ordinaria" is cheaper, but then the receiver has to wait for a very long time to get the postcard.

PRICES
Many things here are cheaper compared to the prices in Northern Europe. Fish and meat are not, fruit and vegetables are, especially during the season.

RENT A CAR/SCOOTER
Talk to us if you want help with this. It´s expensive to rent cars/scooters in Italy.

RESTAURANTS
Almost all the restaurants are closed one day in the week. Which one differs. During the high season is wise to make a reservation. You decide what to eat, you don´t have to try the whole meny. An antipasto + dessert is OK!!

SAINT PETER´S IN ROME
You have to dress properly when you´re visiting Saint Peter´s. Women have to cover the shoulders and men are not allowed to wear shorts.

SHOPS
In general, the shops are closed 13.00-16.30. During the low season, most of the supermarkets are closed Thursday afternoon. Sunday afternoon, all the supermarkets are closed.

WATER
It´s not dangerous to drink the water in Terracina. In spite of that many buy water in the shops. "Frizzante" is with gas, "naturale" without.

STORY

Terracina is as old as its literal sources that claim the town's origin as Etruscan, Volscian and then a Roman colony. It is extraordinarily capable of surprising you with its immense cultural and artistic patrimony accumulated over the centuries.
At the end of the Etruscan supremacy in the region of Lazio “Terracina" it was in fact handed over to the Italian population, named the Volscians, who then changed its name to “Anxur" . Only after a long period of wars was the foundation of the maritime colony, in 329 B.C. sanctioned. This was of strategic importance for the military and commercial penetration south of the peninsular.
The oldest part of the town, enclosed in the polygonal town walls, was built on the western slope of Mount Sant'Angelo, which extended towards the Valley and the marshes known as the Cannete. Stories from the Roman period tell of the growth of the town and the exploitation of the fertile land to the east, and how the town extended and became inhabited down near the sea , while the original part of the town on the hill remained the more elegant area, rich in mansions and monuments.
During the age of Silla, several monuments in opus incertum and reticulatum, such as the Roman theatre were built, as were the walls that surrounded the monument of Mount Sant'Angelo and the construction of the magnificent Temple of Juppiter Anxur. During the Imperial age between the 1st and 2nd century A.D., there was a second phase of construction in the town, including the great Emilian Forum, the Municipal Square surrounded by porticos and numerous religious and civil buildings and finally the new Trajan port.
The collapse of the Roman Empire dragged the town into a long period of decline.
The ancient Volscian-Roman walls were replaced by a new fortification and Terracina became even more of a fortified town under the influence of the Pontifical State and repeated attempts of feudalism by the noble families of Lazio and the Kingdom of Naples. Meanwhile the expansion of the marshes and the spreading of malaria, progressively reduced the number of inhabitants. Terracina had to wait until the end of the 18th century for its proud recovery when it became the political, administrative and technical centre of the reclamation of the Pontine Marshes much desired by Pope Pious VI. The old town thus became de-militarized and the fortified structures changed their role and became private residences, and public and religious buildings such as the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace.
The lower urban centre of the town was reclaimed and the area, now known as Borgo Pio, was built. Its development continued all through the 19th century until the beginning of the 20th century overlapping the reconstruction of the area after the World Wars.
