Anguillara Sabazia is a town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Rome, Lazio, central Italy, around 30 kilometres (19 mi) northwest of Rome. It nestles on a small cape on the coast of Lake Bracciano; its medieval center and its beach make it a popular destination for tourists.

Anguillara is served by a local train (line "FR3", or Rome-Capranica-Viterbo Railroad) which connects it with Rome (stations of Roma Ostiense and of Valle Aurelia) in around 40 minutes.

About 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the town lies the small, volcanic Lake Martignano, also popular with tourists. The two lakes and the surrounding area have been declared a Regional Park and are under a strict naturalistic control.

A two-part episode of the American sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond was shot in the town.

On October 4–5, 2020, Anguillara Sabazia held a run-off election for mayor between center-right candidate Angelo Pizzigallo and center-left candidate Michele Cardone.[3] Pizzigallo won by a slim 43-vote margin (according to the city's website, the final ballot count was 4,026 to 3,983), with only 8,281 of the 19,000 residents voting.[4]
