Marina di San Nicola
Marina di San Nicola is a seaside village located south of Ladispoli: the beach is popular with those seeking privacy and tranquility, the sea is ideal for those who practice surf. Close to the beach you will find the archaeological remains of a Roman villa traditionally identified as Villa of Pompey as alleged possession of Pompey the Great, but more likely the ruins of the ancient city of Alsium. A pedestrian promenade leads to the WWF’s Oasis of Palo Laziale. The vegetation of the oasis includes a hydric wood with pools and ponds, some areas with Mediterranean plants and a park with exotic plant species. Iinteresting is the Garden of Wild Orchids in the Mediterranean, a botanical garden located in the oasis.
Very impressive is the coastal fortress of Palo, a private castle which is not open to the public, but that can be seen from the beach.
