Nettuno, Italy

Nettuno is an Italian coastal town on the Tyrrhenian Sea, which is part of the Mediterranean. We spent a few hours there one afternoon on a day trip from Rome.

We were there to visit the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery. After visiting the cemetery, we drove into the center of Nettuno and had a nice, quick lunch at Moj Restaurant-Cafè. I wrote more details about these experiences in my post about Rome.

After lunch, we walked around to see more of Nettuno.  It had a nice, coastal resort town vibe, so I just wanted to share some pictures I took. Enjoy!

From the marina, it was hard to find access to the beach!

From the little bit that I have read about Nettuno, it seems to be a popular coastal resort town, especially given its large tourist port. I’d have to research it more before giving an informed recommendation for visiting, but I will say we enjoyed our afternoon there!
