Nettuno

The town of Nettuno was named after the God of the Sea, Neptune, and shares much of its history with the neighbouring town of Antium / Anzio.   It too was colonised by the Romans.  In the 9th century the inhabitants of Anzio found themselves exposed to repeated attacks by the Saracens, so many moved from Anzio to Nettuno where a fortified settlement was established high on the cliff.
