Relax and beauty in Sperlonga

Pretty whitewashed houses, narrow alleys and delightful little piazzas: Sperlonga, a quaint maritime village perched on the sides of Monte Magno in the region of Lazio, is the ideal place to rest and relax if you want to get away from the chaos and commotion of Rome. Looking for some cultural excursion nearby? Not far from the town center sits one of the most interesting archeological sites of the area, Tiberius’ Villa with its ruins and its Roman thermal baths. Don’t miss out the nearby cave which used to be a cenatio, an outdoors banquet room used by the emperor in the summer!
