Formia

Overview

Formia is a small town that overlooks the sea and has preserved, over the centuries, its seafaring history and essence. A symbol of its past is the Castle, which has maintained the charm of the past despite having lost its defensive walls and most of its towers. The neighbourhood around the ruins of the Roman theatre built in the 1st century B.C. is also very particular: in this place full of memories and stories, private homes now stand, and the daily routine of laundry hung out in the sun is intertwined with the atmosphere of a distant time. The bond that unites the city with the sea, on the other hand, can be found in the area of the small port, full of life and activity: here the bustle of fishermen and the calls of seagulls are a perpetual tale of the sea and its power, accompanied by the lapping of the waves and the scent of saltiness.
