An attractive seaside town in the province of Latina, Lazio is famous for its Fascist-era architecture and for attracting numerous Italian celebrities. With gorgeous beaches, semi-deserted bays, clear blue skies, colourful nightlife and its closeness to Rome Sabaudia, it has an abundance of charms. The town was created as part of Benito Mussolini’s national reclamation and urbanisation programme. This landmark project from the 1930s involved the draining of the Pontine Marshes to create new towns. Pontine was founded in 1933 and lies within the 8,500 hectare Parco Nazionale del Circeo.
