What's Terracina Like?
Terracina's enticing beach area stretches for some distance west of the town harbor, ensuring that it rarely gets crowded even in high season. Away from the coast, in the lofty old town, the graceful Duomo church dates from 1075 and features a mosaic floor and flagstones from the ancient Roman temple that originally stood on the site. At the top of the hill, the remains of the temple of Jupiter Anxurus form the most significant Roman site in the town, with the substantial vaulted base providing a landmark on the coastal skyline. The Museo Civico displays ancient exhibits and guides to Terracina's Roman attractions. Terracina hotels offer a convenient base for exploring the coastal area, with a regular ferry service from the harbor to Ponza on the Pontine islands.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Terracina
English is not widely spoken in this region of Lazio and it's worth preparing a few Italian phrases to help you negotiate your way in restaurants and railway stations. Train connections are irregular and the bus service is a more efficient way of exploring the coast or heading for Rome. Cuisine in Terracina puts the emphasis on fresh fish and seafood, with risottos a popular menu item on the restaurants around the harbor. The Via Roma offers a selection of inexpensive pizzerias and cafes. Local wines include the Moscato di Terracina whites, an ideal accompaniment to shellfish.
