Frosinone Car Rental
Situated on a hill overlooking the Sacco Valley, Frosinone is located in Lazio and is generally regarded as the capital of Ciociaria, a group of territories located south-east of Rome.
With its long and rich history, Frosinone has been both a Volscian city with the name of Frusna, and a Roman city with the name of Frùsino.
Over the centuries it has suffered lootings and earthquakes, however these events have not prevented it from preserving evidence of its past, as can be seen from the numerous artefacts housed in the city’s Archaeological Museum.
Whilst a visit to Frosinone will allow you to admire a truly unique historical and artistic heritage, the surrounding villages will provide you with just as many surprises, since Ciociaria is a land of art, culture and excellent cuisine.
