Minturno is a typical medieval town, such as those found in the south of Italy: small winding streets and stairways, arches, flowers and old churches. The city lies at the foot of the gigantic mountains Aurunci and is built on a hill that rises above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Worth seeing are the medieval churches of San Pietro, the Santissima Annunziata and San Francesco and of course the medieval castle. At Christmas time a Christmas market is held with arts and crafts and a nativity scene exhibition in the castle stattlo medievale. To take the first contact with the village, a short tour through the streets of Old Town is recommended, the old main street and then turn right following the somewhat dark arches of the old city wall. The remains of the old Minturnae are located on the famous Via Appia near the Garigliano River. The origins of the ancient Minturnae go back to the Aurunci peoples. In the year 340 BC they were defeated by the Romans. Now they can see the remains of the ancient Roman amphitheater Minturnae and admire in the summer cultural events like theater, music and dance held demonstrations. In a small museum with statues, inscriptions and objects such as vases or tool, visitors can look at the findings of the excavations. In the green hills surrounding the small medieval villages lie Minturno Tremensuoli, Santa Maria Infante, Pulcherini and Tufo. Situated on the coast, the tourist districts Scauri and Marina di Minturno. If they go down into the valley, they come to the station Minturno-Scauri and the sea.
