Much has been done to make this arcade of shops appealing to the general public but by far its main attraction is the way that it is built and decorated. In this photo you can see the painting on the wall and the emphasis on coloured glass in the floor. Further along the arcade and indeed right into the landing where there are stairs up (and out) or down to some old rocks which can be seen straight through the flooring..............a bit scary to walk on really. I have a feeling that the old rocks may be part of the illusive ampiteatro said to be around this area of Formia.
What to buy: Postcards, trinkets and knick knacks are my special purchases.
What to pay: I would limit myself to 20 Euro per purchase, excepting if buying some of that beautiful rose gold jewellery.

Address: Via Vitruvio, Formia, Lazio.
Every township that I went into had a monument to their war dead in a fairly prominent place. Formia is no different. This is to be found in a park alongside the main road through Formia ........Via Vitruvio, just about opposite the National Museum.

a festival, be sure to check the time of the last bus and indeed where it might leave from, because they often by pass the main road (via Vitruvio) in favour of the back streets to avoid crowds and side shows etc.
I got a sickening feeling in my stomach when the prescribed time for last bus came and went and I was facing a 12 kms uphill climb at midnight.
