Ancient history has never looked as pretty as it does along the ancient Via Aurelia, near Rome. Step into the 14th-century Santa Severa Castle, and explore the archaeological area of Pyrgi - one of the most important and storied spots in Italy. And afterward, hit the beach! Just like the Romans would have done.
In Santa Marinella, just 40km from Rome, you'll get an amazing blend of ancient history and seaside good times. With this ticket you can walk around the remains of the ancient port of Pyrgi, and then step into newly opened Santa Severa Castle, an 11th-century (later finished in the 14th century) castle.
Make sure your visit includes the fascinating Maritime and Ancient Navigation Museum, which has shipwrecked Etruscan and Roman ships!
You'll enjoy an excellent audio guide as well, which will fill you in on the history of the area. So you'll feel you earned your relaxing post-castle swim!
