Terracina, a town of Volscan origin, later became Roman.
It was conquered and built up by several populations, among which the Etruscans, because of its strategic position, on the top of the hill, above the sea.
Thanks to the beauty of the places, Terracina became an attractive holiday resort and a military and commercial county of Rome. After a period of decline, Terracina came back to its importance in the feudal period, under the rule of Pope Urban II.
Today, Terracina is a charming town with natural, artistic and historical beauties.
