The Museum City
Terracina is an open museum with its more than 2500 years history and was first mentioned in V century B.C. as an etruscan village. In Roman Age the city started to play an important cultural and economic role in the Empire, especially during the period of Neapolitan expansions. In 1785 Pope Pio VI created a major political and administrative centre and, moreover, made the city one of his residences as a tribute to his childhood, spent here.
History of the city can be seen everywhere, particularly in unification of historic and modern monuments.
For those who are searching for night life, Terracina has a lot to offer as well– in its modern centre there are a lot of pubs, cocktail bars and clubs, including those in the open air. The majority of them is open all year long.
