Invest your Italian mortgage in the beautiful Roman fishing town of Anzio

The small fishing town of Anzio just south of Rome could be the ideal place for you to invest your Italian mortgage. Just over an hour’s train journey from Rome on the Eastern coast of Lazio, this historic Roman port was the setting for the British and US landing that liberated Rome from German occupation during WWII.

Although much of the town was rebuilt after the war, the Liberty-style villas constructed for the spiritual heirs of the Roman emperors can still be seen on the gentle slopes overlooking the town. Known by the name of Antium, Anzio was a favourite with the emperors no doubt due to its refreshing sea breezes and fresh fish dinners that still make it popular today.

With an Italian mortgage, enjoy a day trip to the Italian isle of Ponza

The port is a busy and colourful bustle of fishing boats coming and going with their day’s catch to fill the restaurants with. From the end of the marina, a car ferry or Hydrofoil can be taken to reach the nearby island of Ponza which is regarded as a less-spoilt – and cheaper – version of Capri.

Inside Anzio itself, as well as the abundance of delicious fish restaurants to choose from, there are several gelaterias and pizzerias to please young families or those less keen on frutti di mare. With a picturesque fountain at the centre and an imposing church built by Pope Pius IX behind, the square provides a quaint and slightly archaic centre to the town. Although it can seem deserted during the daytime, from sunset onwards the outdoor bars surrounding the square soon fill up with locals sipping Proseco or sampling some of the locally produced wines.

Enjoy midday siestas with an Italian mortgage

As with the rest of Italy, Anzio’s shops observe the midday siesta between 12 and 4 which during the summer months provides the perfect opportunity to cool off on the long stretch of sandy beaches along Anzio’s coastline.

Anzio is perfect for home buyers needing a property within commuter reach of Rome. Direct trains run from Anzio station to Rome’s Termini station which is centrally located and has good bus and metro links. Rail fares to Rome from Anzio are also incredibly cheap with a single ticket costing around three euros and a return travel card costing just over seven euros.

Toast your Italian mortgage with a glass of Proseco

If you have been enticed by the prospect of sipping Proseco whilst enjoying the sea views from your balcony, or enjoying an ice cream in the city square after a day sight seeing in Rome, Anzio could be just the place to find an Italian property to invest your overseas mortgage in.
