Near the beach
Posted Oct 8, 2011
Torino Hotel is in town of Terracina, a fishing village. Not touristy, off the tourists' route. Disadvantage is one train from Rome, around 17:00. Take a bus to town center, walk 3-4 blocks to the picturesque canal. Cross the canal and Torino Hotel is one block right on the canal. Several clean rooms, tiny bathrooms. Family owned and run. The young boys often help Mom at the front desk. Internet and breakfast included. Beautiful, spacious outside lounging in an enclosed secure courtyard. Lunch/dinner three blocks down opposite side of canal at a fresh fish cooperative. One block from high end fashion stores. Two-three blocks from the central piazza. Piazza if active in early eve with children playing. Eat outside at Restorante Pizzeria Perugini DaPino at Piazza Della Republica. Walk 4-5 blocks to the sandy beach. Leave by bus (3 blocks away); buy ticket at cafe at bus station to Mt Biogio, where trains to Rome and Naples leave every hour, or stop at Gaeta or Formia (also coastal towns). Also buy train tickets across the road from train station at the cafe. Absolutely safe!!
