SPERLONGA, ITALY –
People who live in Rome tend to flee the city in the summer to avoid the heat and the influx of tourists – and although Sperlonga may be a bit of a trek, the gorgeous, lively beaches, cute little town, and vibrant nightlife are well worth the effort.
The three main areas of town offer various shopping and leisure opportunities and include Torre Truglia, a scenic area built into a rock that divides the town in two and that features many restaurants, shops, cinemas, bars, and bustling piazzas.
The area of Levante faces the sea and is home to Nord Sud Camping and two lively discos, Zen and El Sombrero, while Ponente is a resort area that includes Via C. Colombo, the main strip along the beach.
Though there’s plenty to see and do in this charming town, it’s clear that the main focus in Sperlonga is relaxing on the clean white sands, frolicking in the clear waters, and lingering over fresh seafood and cocktails at the beachside cafés.
Mostly Italians from Rome and Napoli, all ages.
Stunning views and entertaining street performers.
The beach is a two-hour car ride from Rome.
Beachside hotels average €140+/double and usually include breakfast, parking, a beach chair, and other beach amenities. Two- and three-star hotels average €90+/double.
Beachwear by day, clubwear by night.
Summer, especially in August when Rome turns into a burning-hot ghost town.
