This was a nice area and small museum to check out. Quite in the off season. Would walk along the beach and avoid the highway. Would avoid driving if possible. Beautiful grounds to explore with ocean views.

Sperlonga Archaeological Museum, Tiberius Villa & Grotto. Gigantic sculpture of Ulysses (nobody) blinding the cyclops Polyphemus (found originally in the grotto, intended for fire light, water’s reflection, live music, dance & epic story telling.)

Some culture is always good during holidays. I reccomend this place, especially the cave. When temperature is high, use an umbrella against the sun, its pretty hot between the stones.

Took a cab from Sperlango to Tiberius' villa and grotto. The villa is ruins but a new museum with lots of windows and light house wonderful statues, frescoes, and pieces of pottery. There are English descriptions to accompany the Italian. The walk to the villa ruins and grotto is well marked. The grotto is amazing -the water and rocks and then looking up from the water to the town nestled in the hills. Took us 2 hours to see everything

Built in the Republican period it is best known for the cave used by Tiberius as a dining room. Several gusts were killed in a rockfall but Tiberius survived. There is an excellent museum on site with reassembled sculptures from the cave. The best known being ""the blinding of Polyphemus"" & also worth seeing is the sea monster Scylla eating Odysseus' men.
