Nettuno and Anzio are two small resort town situated on the banks of the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the distance of three kilometers one from another and about 60km on the south of Rome. Once these two towns were one single entity of ancient city Antium, but then they were separated.
Anzio, according to legend, was founded by Antaeus, the son of enchantress Circe and Odysseus. Its territory was famous from the earliest times for clean sea and sandy beaches. The imperial palace was there, where the great Nero was born and founded a trading port later.
