Wow! For the past few years i have't had the chance to go to a nice beach with nice sand and clear water to get a tan and just enjoy the sun. Well now that we were in Rome, and so close to any beach we decided to reserve a day just for that.
After carefully reading reviews on other blogging websites we decided that Sperlonga was going to be the best option for us.
So we got up at 6am, got ready for the beach and started on our journey. And boy it was worth it all!
We took the train from Rome to Fondi-sperlonga wich took us approximately 1.15 hrs. At the station a bus was waiting to take us in the city. It cost €1 for a person and it took about 15 minutes to get us there.
Amazing view we saw even before getting off the bus.
We went straight to the beach and rented two chairs with an umbrella for the entire day for €25.
The water was very clear and of a nice temperature. We just couldn't get out of the water!
At midday when the sun was too strong we decided to go for a stroll in the city. It was all stairs and white walls. Just like Greece. We walked around for a little while and then we just sat and admired the view.
We left at approximately 4pm as we were quite exhausted because of the sun and so much salted water.
Of course, if you don't want to spend too much time travelling to the beach from Rome you can go somewhere closer to the city. There are several places you can go. The thing is, usually the beaches are packed and the water is not so good. This is why we chose Sperlonga.
There are several hotels along the beach, restaurants and cafe's. If you're thinking of staying there for more than a day you should totally do it! The place is simply amazing and definitely needs more than a day to enjoy, explore and fully take advantage of all it's beauty.
I hope that all the information and pictures posted here will make you want to go there and enjoy the views.
