San Felice Circeo

Cities and Towns in Lazio

 

A town which never fails to enchant all those fortunate enough to pay it visit, San Felice Circeo is a splendid seaside resort situated on the Pontine coast, at the feet of Mount Circeo. According to the legend, it was here that Homer's epic hero Ulysses was bewitched by the Sorceress Circe and imprisoned for over a year. The Temple of Circe, is part of the Acropolis, a fascinating archaeological site in which, in addition to the pagan site of worship, the remains of a number of roman villas can also be admired.

During the summer months San Felice is invaded by holiday makers, drawn by the town'smarvellous crystal clear sea and picturesque borgo. In the center, there are two important historic buildings: the 13th century Torre dei Cavalieri Templari and thePalazzo Baronale, this latter now the town hall. The panorama visible from the Piazzale del Belvedere is simply breathtaking.

Close to San Felice, there are a number of interesting caves, the most famous being the Grotta Guattari in which the skull of a Neanderthal man was found. San Felice is the perfect place for nature lovers, and forms one of the gateways to the National Park of the Circeo. On the coast of the Circeo, the sea breeze is constant - making the area a favourite destination for windsurfers.

Client Testimonials

I am a travel agent from Lebanon and have organized several group tours as well as individual tours of Italy with Italy Vacation Specialists. I highly recommend them as one of the very best tour operators in Italy to work with, given their professionalism and work ethic which I feel is second-to-none in the travel industry. All of the staff, the guides, the coaches and even the meals we enjoyed were fantastic throughout the tour. Italy is a beautiful country, though we realize very complicated to work in and for this reason we were all very appreciative to the hard work we felt when into the services we received and personal service. No doubt, we will be returning to Italy many times again and definitely working with the IVS team!
