Predominantly a bland day heading along the VF mostly in the right direction. A mid morning diversion to a supermarket added a few hundred metres, but the provisioning opportunity was well worth it.
However, the blandness of the day’s journey was to lull us, so that arriving in Terracina was all the more impactful. Another Roman town that I’ve never heard of (I don’t recall it being mentioned anywhere in Gibbon’s Decline and fall of the Roman empire!), what makes it stand out is that the town’s central square is the Roman central square, complete with original pavers, a section of the via Appia, and remnants of a theatre and other buildings. Very cool!
And to top it off, it’s a seaside town, so what better way to cool the aching bones than a dip in the Med?
