Mondragone

The comune of Mondragone - population 27,000 - is in the Province of Caserta,
some 45 km NW of Naples and 10 km north of Castel Volturno.

The town is in an important position, near the Via Appia. It's a short bus ride
from the local railway station - Falciano-Mondragone-Carinola - which is some
35/40 minutes from Pozzuoli or Naples (a little longer if you have to change
trains, at Villa Literno or Aversa respectively).
.
There's a small but interesting museum of archaeological finds, including
objects from the hilltop fortress of La Rocca. For more about that, see
