Despite all my visits to this gorgeous beach spot, I only recently made it to the museum and ruins of Ancient Rome’s Emperor Tiberius, who ruled from 14-37 AD.
This little get-away to the south was his favored summer retreat, and he built his villa with its caves housing farmed fish and spectacular, Classical statues, depicting scenes from Homer’s The Odyssey.
Still, these are impressive, and helpful to understand how imposing they must have been in this cavern on the edge of the sea.
There are beautiful views out onto the sea and to the town of Sperlonga on the other end of the beach.
When you are in the pretty town of Sperlonga, take time to see the impressive museum and cavern of Emperor Tiberius’ villa.
