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.

The listing description was accurate. Fresh fruit and wine was left for us which was a nice gesture.

Mario, and particularily his parents made us feel really welcome. They helped us with the luggage, had prepared fruit and snacks and even a lunch for us. They helped us out with all practicalities. This was really above and beyond what could be expected. The apartment is ideally located and is small but comfortable and clean. We can really recommend this apartment!

Wonderful hosts! very attentive, helpful and kind. Also very generous. The fridge was full of water, juice, cold tea, fruits and we also got very tasty Italian tomatoes on top. Basic staff like salt, sugar and olive oil were in the apartment. The apartment is very nice. very clean and comfortable. The hosts even had an anti- moskito device in the apartment. the location is very good. the apartment is very close to the supermarkets, restaurants, shops and beach (public and private). it's a little bit loud at night as the bars are open till very late. but this is all right for a summer beach vacation. you just need to know, or bring earplugs with you. ;-) Overall, everything was great. Thank you very much.

Response from Mario:
I think it is a bit exaggerated to write that there is need of earplugs for sleep... We have had guests families with children and closing the windows with air conditioning did not have problems with noise . Of course, we are in the city center with public events and places open late ... many people love this holiday because they live in the night, but for those who want to rest just close the windows ... thanks anyway for your review, it was a pleasure to host .

Mario's parents greeted us and let us into the apartment. They were very sweet and helpful, they showed us around the apartment and how everything worked and where extra pillows and towels were. we had some questions about parking and about how to get access to the beaches and they were very helpful. The apartment was great, it had everything we needed, a washer, wifi, they even bought us water and fruit from the market. The location was great, it was a few minute walk to a number of beach clubs where you can rent a chair and umbrella for the day. Also there was a great night life and lots of shopping right outside the door. Terracina was a beautiful city, not toursisty at all. We found some great local restaurants they were within a few minute walk, Osteria la rezzatelle and pizzeria antica forno. Only issues were the bed was a little firm for us, but that's personal preference. I would recommend anyone to stay in terracina or to stay here, we loved it.

Beautiful place in the heart of the city. Mario Di Girolamo and his italian-speaking father was very nice :) Beach and supermarket is situated not far from the apartment. Disadvantages: - very noisy on friday, saturday and sunday (but it's okay with closed windows) - the problems with hot water from time to time - lack of microwave oven and electric kettle (maybe it's just us :) )

Response from Mario:
Мы знаходзімся ў самым цэнтры горада, у асяроддзі выдатных рэстаранаў і пабаў, і часта летам ёсць фестываляў на вуліцах, я думаў, што ты трыццаць гадоў, якія не восемдзесят. Любое пытанне гарачай вады няправільна! Часовая тэхнічная праблема з катлом, два да маланкі ударыў Гэта Ён прымусіў нас замяніць яго. Я часта задаваўся пытаннем, калі б у вас была ніякіх праблем з ім, і вы ніколі не адказваў на гэта. Няма згадкі для дапамогі вашых тысячу запытаў. Дзякуй ў любым выпадку! We are in the heart of the city, surrounded by great restaurants and pubs, and often in the summer there are festivals in the streets, I thought you had thirty years, not eighty. Mention the hot water issue is incorrect! A temporary technical problem with the boiler, due to a lightning bolt that hit it has forced us to replace it. I have often wondered if you had any problems with it and you never responded to this. No mention for your aid to your thousand requests. Thanks anyway!

Wife and I rented the apartment in late August - early September. The apartment was pleasant, the location is very good, in the city centre - close to beaches, shopping street, restaurants and bars. The bedroom window looking at the green yard. A huge thank you to Mario parents, who is very friendly and greeted us and made sure our stay: fruit and wine, water, tea, coffee, everything you need to stay. A quiet separate entrance, marble staircase, quiet neighbors. Everything is fine, we rested! Thanks to Mario and his family.
