Archaeological District and Antiquarium of Minturnae and Ponte Real Ferdinando
The archaeological area of Minturnae lies about two kilometres from the mouth of the River Garigliano, on its right bank. It provides us with a singular chance to piece together the history of southern Lazio between Republican Rome and Imperial times.
An important urban stretch of the Via Appia runs across the archaeological site, flanked by numerous buildings with political, civil and religious functions. A rich collection of inscriptions and statues are on display in the basement rooms of the Roman theatre.
