Considered a direct legacy of the ancient city of Antium, the historic center of Neptune carries with it centuries of history. The city, which was once a famous spa and resort center for the Roman aristocracy, offers an opportunity to take a dip into history, with remnants of magnificent Roman villas and medieval evidence.
Neptune also offers beautiful beaches along the Tyrrhenian coast. Ideal for enjoying the sun and sea in the summertime, Neptune's beaches provide relaxation and fun for families, couples, and single travelers.

The Medieval Village and its Tower

One of the jewels of Neptune is undoubtedly the medieval village. This charming historic district, with its narrow, winding streets, old houses, historic palaces such as the Palazzo Baronale, also known as the Palazzo Orsini, and the Palazzo Doria-Pamphilj and the Collegiate Church of St. John the Baptist, turns out to be a concentration of evocative atmospheres.

Set overlooking the sea, Nettuno rises offers breathtaking views, and the nightlife in the village is quite lively, with numerous pubs and clubs that draw on its charismatic architecture to create unique atmospheres.

Symbol of the village Torre Astura is one of the must-see attractions, a fortified tower and a small island in Lazio. This fascinating place is set in a unique historical and natural context, since it has been the home of Roman nobles and served as a set for various films and television programs.
