Sperlonga, near Rome
| Next, Terracina
long and sandy beach resort of Sperlonga, 128 kms south of Rome and halfway
to Naples, is lively and popular but pricey - on this north side anyway - with rental chairs and parasols unusually arranged in conversation-inducing
semi-circles instead of straight lines.

Sperlonga old town and its narrow streets and whitewashed houses is just a short walk from the beach and widely pedestrianised while down around the beach headland is a nature reserve and the remains of a villa once owned by Emperor Tiberius.
