In Sperlonga, a little north of the town, are the ruins of Emperor Tiberius’ Villa, built on land owned by his family in about the 1st century. Now most of the ruins are the normal Roman villa ruins, nothing to exciting, but what is highly interesting is the cave turned into a dining room. It is a natural cave which then was carved to fit a perfect design, it has a circle around a pond and a small island in the center of this ponds. The cave then leads back into quarters for the emperor. At one time large statues showing stories of Odysseus were present, but they have now been destroyed and moved around. This cave is truly impressive. It is only 5 euro entrance to the whole site, but there is also a free beach right next door!
