Welcome to Sperlonga

Set along the Tyrrhenian coast halfway between Rome and Naples, the ancient resort town of Sperlonga has been a top seaside destination for millennia. City dwellers gather here to soak up the Mediterranean rays at one of the many beach clubs along the waterfront, breaking up their basking with a visit to the local archaeological ruins and museum or with a minicruise along the coastline to admire the coastal cliffs in the Riviera di Ulisse Regional Park and swim and snorkel in the crystalline waters of the Blue Grotto.
