History, sea-side and food for an unconventional day tour *w/Transportation included*


37 miles (60 km) away from Rome, the small city of Anzio is well known for its seaside harbour and its fishing port which guarantees the high quality of fresh seafood caught every morning; indeed many Romans love eating in the famous fish restaurants all along the port! Even the ancient Romans loved this area and we still have some remains of Roman villas. Among them, the most famous is the Villa of Emperor Nero (Ist AD) overlooking the seafront. The city bears great historical significance as the site of the landing by the Allies during the World War II. The Memories are still alive thanks to a small museum (The Landing Museum) and to the American Cemetery built in Nettuno, two days after the landing, in January 1944, where rest 7. 861 soldiers. Nettuno, a small neighbouring city, would be a direct survival of the Roman Anzio, which territory almost entirely corresponded to Nettuno and modern Anzio.

Itinerary

Pick up with the professional driver and heading out for Anzio (approximately 1h/1h30 min. ). Visit to the remains of Nero's Villa and then visit to "The Landing Museum" housed in Villa Adele, a villa dated back at 1600. After a stroll along the port, finally our deserved lunch break in one of the best restaurant of the coastline.
Just 5 minutes by car, for getting to Nettuno. Our first stop will be at the " Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial", then we will visit Nettuno city center, a well preserved old quarter (the Borgo Medievale), with mediaeval streets, small squares, and the Forte Sangallo, a castle built in 1503.

* Upon request, we can modify the program, adding a stop to the beach club for a bath

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Pick up with the professional driver wherever you want within the city (I suppose the best place is your hotel). After your booking confirmation, we will figure it out.
*Pick up at the Cruise Ship Port or at the Airport is also available but it is to be quoted apart (upon request)

End location: Again with the professional driver I can leave you wherever you want within the city (your hotel, restaurant, monument....). We will decide it on the spot.
*Drop off at the Cruise Ship Port or at the Airport is also available but it is to be quoted apart (upon request).

Duration: 8 hours

For enjoing the day the weather is quite important, it should be a sunny day. Unfortunately it might happen to find traffic, in case I need to ask to be patient; in any case, we will have enough time for doing everything scheduled for the day.
