Leaning against the ancient walls of the city, a few steps away from the Duomo, the House is made of two spacious rooms, one of which within a late-roman watch-tower. In what was once the vaulted passage of the sentinels on duty in the watch-tower, room has been made for a small kitchen and a short corridor leading to the iron and wood staircase to the private garden.

In the very middle of the old town, at the end of one of its ancient streets, a small flight of stairs, in marble worn out by time, takes you to Casa della Torre. The soldiers on guard duty in late roman and Medieval Terracina used the tower, integral part of the fortified city walls, as shelter; the window still has a view over the valley lying below.
The second access to the house is from the private garden, lying at the foot of the ancient walls that still surround the old city.
The entrance door opens onto the spacious living room, the heart of the house. A three-seat sofa and an armchair, the fireplace and the dining corner with the table and its seats welcome the guest. The Turkish carpets, the wooden floor, the pieces of old furniture and the red curtains all contribute to make the room warm and cosy.
A vaulted passage marked by a brick arch, with old decorations painted in fresco, takes you to the Tower where is one of the two bedrooms, furnished with two double beds (cm. 140x200) plus an old escritoire of inlaid wood and an armchair with nice voluted armrests.
In the living room, the mezzanine, with its original balustrade/bookshelf, makes room for the second bedroom, furnished with a double bed (cm. 140x200), and its bathroom with washbasin, bidet, wc and shower.
The small kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, a gas kitchen, an electric oven and a dishwasher.
A second bathroom, twin to the one on the mezzanine, completes the house.
From the house, an original iron and wood staircase takes you down to a spacious private garden with orange and lemon trees, served by a small brick house with a kitchenette and the washing machine.
The house is with autonomous heating.
