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. Still today the sea here is one of the cleanest in Italy and the surrounding parks are a treasure left almost intact since the ancient times. Main attraction in Sperlonga is the residential complex attributed to the 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 the decoration which is mostly preserved now in the nearby museum. The huge statues of the myth of Ulysses are a masterpiece not to be missed!
