Situated just a short distance west of the major resort of Gaeta, the port town of Formia is of a slightly more functional nature but does have some important facilities and sights.
Among those sights are the Torre di Mola, a 27 metre high fortified tower that now stands guard over a private marina. Closer to the main town centre, a second marina is overlooked by a park.
From the Villa Comunale Umberto Park you get great views across the marina and also out to sea where the town's main port is situated, providing ferry crossings to the island of Ponza. If you take the town side exit from the park, you enter the main shopping street Via Vitruvio which has some colourful buildings and also an Archaeological Museum. Behind the museum there's a pretty square: Piazza Marconi, which is dominated on one side by the Parrocchia Santa Teresa d'Avila church.
