Bridgwater is twinned with the Italian town of Priverno. An hour south of Rome by fast train and 30 minutes from the coast where we usually stay (at the beach hotel of Oasi di kufra in Sabaudia) this has rapidly become one of our more popular links. Combining the Capital with our twin town and sometimes on down to Naples it’s a great location.

Priverno is a hilltop town in the region of Lazio and in easy reach of the 2 key WW2 battlefields of Monte Cassino and Anzio.

Sabaudia is (sadly, but interestingly) a good example of a ‘Fascist new town’ with fascinating 1930s architecture and a warning from history.

One thing of course it means is we let lots of great Italian bands over here in Bridgwater
