Sperlonga, Latina, Italy


Sperlonga is a coastal town in the province of Latina, Italy, about halfway between Rome and Naples. It is best known for the ancient Roman sea grotto discovered in the grounds of the Villa of Tiberius containing the important and spectacular Sperlonga sculptures, which are displayed in a museum on the site. 

The Sperlonga sculptures are a large and elaborate ensemble of ancient sculptures discovered in 1957 in the grounds of the former villa of the Emperor Tiberius at Sperlonga, on the coast between Rome and Naples.

Sperlonga is easily reachable from Rome, with trains departing from Roma Termini. The closest train station to the village is Fondi, roughly one hour south by regional train. Once in Fondi, a café right inside the train station will be able to sell you tickets for a bus operated by a private company called Piazzoli.
