Sperlonga

Sperlonga was our first stop, that is after an exciting introduction to driving in Italy on the highways and biways. See my post on Driving in Italy for more on that. Sperlonga is a beautiful, historic town with an incredible old city that is built into the hillside by the sea.

The beach gets crowded in summer but it's the offseason now so we have it to ourselves.

Sperlonga old city

The old city is Amazing! It’s about 1000 years old and it’s built organically and over time into this hillside by the sea. You can walk up through the buildings through various narrow streets and up endless stairs. The walls are beautiful, old stone in various states of disrepair and then there are houses that are being remodeled and fixed up. Apparently, the locals have moved out of the old city and they are popular for foreigners to purchase and fix up. Imagine owning a pieced of history like that….but for a price, they are expensive.
