ABOUT THE AREA
Anzio is a town and comune on the coast of the Lazio region of Italy, about 51 kilometres south of Rome. Well known for its seaside harbour setting, it is a fishing port and a departure point for ferries and hydroplanes to the Pontine Islands of Ponza, Palmarola, and Ventotene.
Anzio is easier to get to by public transport than southern Lazio’s other coastal towns. Trains from Rome run directly to the town (and on to Nettuno) at hourly intervals through the day. The journey takes an hour on the slow double-decker train, and is very cheap (about €3 each way). If the ticket office at Anzio is closed, you can buy tickets from the newsagents next door. Anzio’s station (a charming modernist design) is fairly central; the centre of town and the port are a 10-minute walk downhill.
If your priority is to visit the British Cemetery (Cimitero Inglese), the nearest station to walk from is little Villa Claudia, a couple of stops before Anzio (after Lavinio). However, taxis are likely to be more obtainable in Anzio itself.
To the west, turning your back on the port, a stretch of manicured beach concessions (stabilimenti) leads up to a headland where there is a small park with trees and stone benches. Some ruins of the Roman port can be seen on the rocks below. A staircase leading down from here, in front of a restaurant, leads to a much more interesting beach (you need to cross over another stabilimento to reach the ‘free’ stretch of sand). This sandy stretch is edged by low, unstable-looking cliffs, topped with the ruins of the Roman imperial palace. Remains of Roman walls and openings dot the bottom of the cliffs, treated with disregard by beach-users (we saw a tramp curled up in one tunnel, lovers entwined in a cave entrance, and boys using another as a makeshift urinal). At the far end of the beach is a rocky promontory where Roman walls crumble down into the sea, pierced by two intriguing caves. An archaeological park on top of the cliffs allows you to explore the ruins more closely, but it has very limited opening hours.
Anzio Tourist Information office is located in the town’s main square, Piazza Pia. The friendly staff can give you a good map and bilingual guide to the town, but the office is closed for several hours (1pm-4pm) at lunchtime. To reach Piazza Pia from the railway station, cross the road and descend Via Paolini. The turning to the museums (see below) is on your left. Continue downhill, then turn right onto Via Fabbri and you’ll emerge on Piazza Pia.
Lazio is in central Italy, on the western coast. The region was formerly known to English travellers by its Roman name, Latium, although this version of the name is now rarely used. A major port of call on the Grand Tour, when eighteenth-century travellers explored its scenic villages, Lazio is now largely overlooked in favour of its capital, Rome.
With so much investment, jobs and tourism concentrated in Rome, the surrounding region is often quiet, depopulated and rather run-down. For tourists, the good side of this is the tracts of unspoiled countryside, the dilapidated but surviving historic town centres, and the welcome you may receive. Tourists are rare creatures in many of Lazio’s smaller towns, and once locals realise you are interested in their hometown they are generally delighted.
Lazio is divided into five provinces. In the north and west, bordering Tuscany and Umbria, are the Provinces of Viterbo and Rieti. In the centre of Lazio, the region’s administrative centre is the Province of Rome, then to the south lie the Provinces of Latina and Frosinone.
