The Riviera di Ulisse is full of points of interest: in fact, we recommend that you also take a trip to the beautiful Riviera di Ulisse Regional Park and go trekking surrounded by nature, before visiting the Sanctuary of the Trinity and the Grotta del Turco, together with the Mausoleum of Lucio Munazio Planco. Discover the imposing Angevin-Aragonese Castle of Gaeta and relax on the beach of Serapo before reaching Terracina where you can admire the Neapolitan Gate and the Cathedral with its medieval-style bell tower and the historic Roman basin, once used for rituals and sacrifices.

Ulysses Riviera

Between mythological places and relaxing atmospheres

There is a coastal stretch in the province of Latina that extends from Circeo to Gaeta whose history is steeped in legend: in fact, Homer says that Ulysses met the sorceress Circe right here, an event that gave the area the name Riviera di Ulisse, or Ulysses Riviera. Relax on the beautiful beaches of Gaeta, admire the sunset over the Circeo from the Temple of Jupiter in Terracina and stroll through the streets of picturesque Spelonga before visiting Formia, the city of Cicero. Make sure not to miss San Felice Circeo, a town that has many churches just waiting to be explored.

  • Go on excursions in Riviera d'Ulisse Regional Park
  • Visit the charming village of Sperlonga
  • Walk through the medieval alleys of Gaeta
