- I planned to go to Sermoneta as there was a artistic festival there on Sunday night, but first I went to visit the bird reserve next door,to the gardens. As I walked around. As I was 1Km inside the reserve I thought I could shortcut the route to Sermoneta, but each side was protected by bushes and canals so after an hour I had to come back out at the castle and walk all the way by road.
- Sermoneta sits ot top of a rock island overlooking the land which used to be mosquito infested swamp. This type of stonebuilt fortified town sitting high up on rocks is quite common in Lazio state whcich was always the state controlled by the Popes when other states were contolled by nobles or foreign powers.
- After 3 hours I got to the base of the hill. and was lucky to get a lift with Francesco & his father up the hill ..then I seem to meet half the town Massimo the organser, Alexia Marco's friend she recommended visiting the special museum at Latina
- and then Marco and his father came across so I went back to stay with them.
