Sperlonga, Italy

Getting out of Naples is a relief. We make our way up north towards Rome with the intention of finding a nice campsite along the way to recharge our batteries, fill up water and relax for a couple of days.

Spending the first night on a public car park in Sperlonga, Logan is trying to snatch power from a socket underground but the connections don’t fit. He is being caught by some curious Italians; they stop right next to him and just stare but don’t say anything. They stared before, when we had dinner too. They all stare. All the time. It’s very intimidating.

The next morning we drive into Nord-Sud Camp here in Sperlonga, a nice place. We are located only meters from the beach and while Logan follows his urge of running up mountains, I’m taking care of blogging.

Once he’s back we are going for a lovely stroll on the beach and I’m going for my first swim in the Mediterranean Sea since 2009. It’s very refreshing since the water temperature is still somewhere under 20 degrees but it’s fun!

Other than that Sperlonga is a pretty dead town at this time of the year. There are not many people here yet but the camping prices have increased from about 10-15 Euros (North and East Italy) to 28-36 Euros (West).

One thought on “Sperlonga, Italy

  1. Ciao !!!

    Here is a good English website all about Sperlonga and neighbouring towns in this beautiful area of South Lazio:

    http://southlazio.shapcott-family.com

    There is so much to discover…………….

    The beautiful coastline of the Riviera Di Ulisse / Ulysses Riviera (sometimes also know as the Costa Pontina or Pontine Coast) is considered to be one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Italy.
    with its numerous golden sandy beaches, rocky coves, hidden caves and sheltered harbours, and the pretty seaside resorts of Sperlonga, Gaeta, Formia, Terracina, San Felice Circeo and the Pontine Islands, is noted for its temperate climate, and rainless summers. The rocky cliffs are a haven for Free Climbers.

    Yet close by are the dramatic Aurunci, and Ausoni, mountains which border the Southern Appenines and the Abruzzo National Park. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a diversity of landscapes: Pretty medieval hill towns; verdant tranquil hillsides; olive groves; rivers, lakes; craggy peaks and protected nature reserves. Perfect for Bird Watchers and Lovers of Nature.

    South Lazio is ideally positioned midway between Rome and Naples making it an ideal base for taking day trips to these noble historical cities, Pompeii & Herculanium and also perhaps to Caserta and Montecassino.

    The South Lazio area is popular with Italian visitors during the month of August, however out of season it reverts to a peaceful setting that is still largely undiscovered by international tourists.

    SOUTH LAZIO – This is “Real Italy” !!!
