"Another Dual Township in Lazio." Minturno by unravelau

Minturno Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 40 photos

Another magnificent view from Minturno township.

These views were just magical for me.

The views to be had from Minturno are breathtaking

When you reach the township of Minturno, as it is with many of these townships near or on the Appian Way, you need to climb part way up a mountain. You can actually reach this piazza with a car ............. but we walked as usual.

Precious little of the Appian Way survives.

This is why so much is being done to preserve what little there is left. This piece unfurled from the ancient ruins in Minturno.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The Ancient Roman archeological digs are near the sea.
  • Cons:The medieval township is (as usual) up a mountain.
  • In a nutshell:You really need two days to visit........one for the diggings and one for the township and castle.

    Dear Carole, How did you find Minturno? It is the birthplace of my Grandfather and is where my Grandparents lived until they immigrated to America in the early 1900's. I am travelling there in June. Thank you for the pictures. AnthonyV

    Well, Carole, it's been over a year since I've visited your Minturno pages. I still find them just as informative and questioning. Such a wonderful place with all the history and antiquity; it just astounds me.

    Between reading yours & pigletsmom's various Italiano pages there's really no excuse for me not going there. But....., where on earth does one begin??????
