I’ve already written about this pretty little beach town on teh Tirrenian Sea, half-way between Rome and Naples.
See my earlier post about the resort town once the favorite of Emperors.
Hilltop Sperlonga itself is a wonderful, whitewashed medieval town, complete with city walls, gates and winding, steep streets.
My kids and I love wandering aimlessly through the tiny, twisting streets, enjoying the hidden corners of this picture-perfect town.
We had fun wandering down to the wide stretches of golden beach along the gentle bay. in the summer, it’s filled with umbrellas and lounge chairs, but I love it in early spring when it’s only an uninterrupted stretch of sand.
My children were thrilled playing soccer on the beach, with a new soccer buddy they met.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed lazing on the sand under the gentle, spring sun. I even squeezed in some time for my first beach reading of the season.
We also had a great lunch of spaghetti alle vongole and fish out in the gentle spring sunshine.
A great way to kick off the spring season in (still-sleepy) Sperlonga.
Looking forward to getting back during the steamy, summer season … but we loved having the town ‘to ourselves’ for one perfect, spring day.
