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.
