1 Hotels in Frosinone, Italy
Frosinone is an important agricultural, commercial and industrial center of Lazio region. The city is the capital of Ciociaria, a famous part of the roman countryside, situated almost on the border with Umbria. The territory is mountainous or hilly, limited to the north by Ernici and Simbruini mountains, while to the south by Ausoni and Aurunci. The historical center is located on a hill overlooking the valley of the river Sacco, but in recent years the city has developed in the surrounding plains, along the path of the river Cosa.
The city was founded by Volsci with the name of Frusino, but soon passed under the rule of Rome. Despite its ancient origin, it is difficult to find traces of the past in its urban structure, as a result of numerous sacks and destruction suffered by Frosinone during the centuries. The second World War has caused serious damage to the urban layout and the shellfires have ruined the most important buildings. Nowday, the city has a modern appearance with wide streets, squares and monuments that deserve to be visited.
The main monument of Frosinone is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, which is of Roman origin but it was rebuilt in '700. The structure is flanked by a beautiful bell tower with three orders of windows that preserves some rest of the original building. Inside the church are hosted some works of art of great value. A short distance is Piazza Vittorio Veneto, which offers a pictoresque view of the vast plain of Sacco and the surrounding mountains. The only testimony of Roman age is the amphitheater, built at the end of the first century on the Cosa riverside.
