A typical street in the old quarter of Sperlonga.

Sperlonga is a beautiful small town on the coast of the Mediterranean, 18 km ESE along the coast from Terracina; 15 km more and you will be in Gaeta. The place is more famous than one might expect: the emperor Tiberius liked it, and remains of a villa of his can still be seen; he also was an avid swimmer, and Tiberius' Grotto here, cousin to the one in Capri, is almost as striking.

I have never been to Sperlonga, but a proper website will eventually appear here, a collaborative venture with Carole Roach who took all the photos. For the moment, see the sites below for fuller information on the town.
