The town of Terracina has very ancient origins. It was probably already inhabited in pre-Roman times, so it has many tourist attractions to suit all tastes.
A walk through the town is like a journey back in time. You can start with the ancient necropolis, or the temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva, and then go to the Piazza del Municipio, which still has its 1st century BC paving, and where the cathedral of Terracina, also known as the cathedral of San Cesareo (5th-6th century BC), stands. Then you can go to admire the medieval castle of the Frangipane family, and gradually come to the present day admiring the legacies of the different past ages.
But these are not the only reasons to go to Terracina. Throughout the year, the town celebrates numerous folkloric festivals dedicated to the patron saints or to the Madonna. The feast of the Madonna del Carmine (or of the Sailors) is very evocative, during which a procession of boats is organised, accompanied by a folk festival.
Finally, Terracina is also a popular destination for tourists because of its beautiful beaches.
Overall, the cultural and tourist offer is very wide, and if you visit the city during rush hour you risk getting stuck in traffic. So, here's what you need to do to find parking in Terracina easily.
Finding free parking in Terracina is not easy, but it is not impossible either.
First of all, you should know that the historic centre is a ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone) monitored by video surveillance, so we advise you not to drive too close. However, just before the pedestrian zone, you can find some free and unguarded parking spaces.
The best free parking to visit the centre of Terracina are in:
If you cannot find free parking at any of these locations, try the Pio VI line. Most parking spaces are metered, but you may find some with white stripes.
What if you have to use the blue stripes instead? Don't worry, here's all you need to know.
Outside the LTZ you can find plenty of paid parking spaces, but as we've already told you, it's not always easy to find free spaces.
If you are unlucky or don't feel like taking the risk, you can look directly at one of the many indoor facilities. On the promenade there are many private car parks managed by the various hotels and bathing establishments, or by companies such as Parkingo. From there you can easily reach the beach or take public transport to the centre.
