Anzio and Nettuno

(page 2 of 13)

During the 17th century Pope Innocenzo XII ordered the building of a new harbour.  Several elegant villas were also built in the area by eminent Cardinals, such as Villa Albani, Villa Adele and Villa Sarsina.


In the early 1900’s Anzio developed into an elegant seaside resort with many edifices constructed in the Art Nouveau “Liberty” style of that period.  The grand casino, known as the “Paradiso sul mare” , was built by Cesare Bazzani and completed in 1924. It is now a Hotel and Catering School, and hosts various cultural events.

Anzio Italy Port Anzio Italy Fishing Boats Fishing Boat in Anzio Italy

Today Anzio is a bustling holiday town, with many restaurants, pizzerias,  bars and cafes and during the summer months visitors can enjoy many cultural events.  There is a busy port packed with   fishing boats, in addition to various ferries and hydrofoils which travel daily back and forth to the Pontine Islands. The colourful marina is filled with numerous  yachts and pleasure craft.

On the small headland of Capo D’Anzio there is a viewpoint with a bronze statue of Nero.  The plaque reads:


"Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, born in Anzio 15/12/37 AD under the name Lucius Domitius Enobarbus, son of Gnaeus Domitius Enobarbus and Agrippina Minor, sister of the emperor Caligula. In 54 AD he became emperor by acclamation of the Praetorian Guard. During his principality the empire enjoyed a period of peace, of great splendour and major reforms. He died on 9/06/68 AD”.
