The medieval town dominated by an imposing castle is famous for its volcanic lake and quiet atmosphere.
This area, amidst hills, lakes and the sea, was favoured by illustrious ancient Romans as a holiday resort. Today the sea here is still one of the cleanest in Italy . The surrounding parks are a treasure and have been left almost intact since ancient times. The main attraction in Sperlonga is the residential complex attributed to Emperor Tiberius and discovered in the Fifties during the construction of the modern via Flacca. It incorporates a natural sea grotto and still visible are the bath complex, the nymphaeum, part of the villa and fragments of its decoration now mostly preserved in the nearby museum. Huge statues of the myth of Ulysses are a masterpiece not to be missed!
