Minturno is a city and comune in the southern Lazio, Italy, situated on the north west bank of the Liris (also known as the Garigliano), with a suburb on the opposite bank about 18km from its mouth, at the point where the Via Appia crossed it by the bridge called Pons Tiretius.It has a station on the Rome-Naples main railway line.HistoryThe ancient Minturnae was one of the three towns of the Ausones which made war against Rome in 314 BC, the other two being called Ausona and Vescia; and the Via Appia was made two years later.It became a colony in 296 BC.In 88 BC, Gaius Marius hid himself in the marshes of Minturnae in his flight from Sulla.The city was probably destroyed in 883 by the Saracens, who in the following years held the surrounding plain. Change things up with these side-trips from Minturno: Grotte di Falvaterra (in Falvaterra), La Camosciara (in Civitella Alfedena) and Monte Cassino (in Cassino). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Comprensorio Archeologico Minturnae, explore the fascinating underground world of Caves of Pastena, pause for some serene contemplation at Cattedrale di Santa Maria - sec.
