The picturesque and genuine harbour is located directly at the Mediterranean Sea, 45 km south of Rome and free of mass tourism. The culture and the history of the region, the nature and the typical Italian way of life invite the visitor to enjoy "la dolce vita" atmosphere and sea life. In recent times, the Allies landed on its shores during World War II, and the American Monumental War Cemetery is not to be missed.
In ancient times, Emperor Nerone chose it as the site for the Complex of the Imperial Palace and the Roman Theatre. The Roman Port and the Grotto of Emperor Nerone represent two more salient features of the town. By day time, the town lazily lies in the sun along its beautiful sandy beaches (both free or equipped with parasols, sun beds, restaurants, snack bars) and is an ideal sea life resort. At night has a very lively night life with many open air restaurants, pubs and genuine pizza houses all over town and along sea shore offering exquisite Italian cuisine, wines and day-fresh sea foods. The region has a mild climate. The summers are sunny, dry and temperate with refreshing soft winds coming from the sea , the warm water enables swimming from May to October.
The happy geographical location of Anzio at the doorstep of ROME enables you to explore the Capital and the Vatican City with their immense cultural wealth and art masterpieces. Many other attractive points are within reach: Popes' Palace and Frascati at Castelli Romani, the fountains of Villa d'Este at Tivoli, the Island of Ponza with its splendid protected marine park, Naples and Pompei etc. The area with its pinion-forests and the coast landscape offers a high recreational value and sporting activities: golf, tennis, horse riding, fishing, wind surf are available in Anzio and the surrounding.
Anzio has a good train connection to Rome, that brings you in 50 minutes in the centre of the city and from there you can use all metro and bus connections to discover the city. In contrast with the busy life of the town central, the residential areas (where our holiday homes are located) are quiet and peaceful near the sunny beaches in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and are ideal for families with children. The "Made in Italy" shopping fans can purchase a high quality fashion, shoes from Armani, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, etc. in one of the most famous Outlet in Europe at factory prices in Castel Romano (Rome) which is located only 25 km from Anzio direction Rome.
