Tour of Sperlonga and the Cave of Tiberius
The Cave of Tiberius is a suggestive place to be visited in Sperlonga. We are dealing about the remains of the villa of the Roman Emperor Tiberius, which came to light quite recently, in 1957.
The Cave of Tiberius was annexed to the villa at a later time, after its construction. Inside the cave, in the cavity, you can admire a rectangular basin with a sort of artificial island in the middle. At the time of the Emperor there was a circular pool inside the cave. Also known as the ‘cave of Tiberius’, the cave is part of the villa that was used by the emperor for holiday periods.
National Museum of Sperlonga
The National Archaeological Museum of Sperlonga is a site that collects various finds coming from the area where there was the villa of Tiberius and the cave. It is possible to see marble groups belonging to the II century BC. that evoke the myth of Ulysses, works celebrating the Gens Iulia and decorative elements.
We also recommend a walk in the histocal center of Sperlonga: Sperlonga looks like a small town with white houses that stands on a spur of rock stretched out towards the sea. A jewel set among alleys, stairways, walls and white houses. Walking in the alleys of Sperlonga you can meet with different breathtaking views.
