This place is also called the "Odyssey Coast", Homer sang its beauty in his poem.
Riviera di Ulisse - This is the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea between the cities of Naples and Rome, in the Lazio region. There is not an abundance of entertainment facilities, but a large number of historical places, including the ancient Pompeii, the Pontic Islands, as well as the cities of the province of Latina.
Sights of the Riviera di Ulisse
The main city of the Riviera di Ulisse is considered Terracina, founded in 600 BC. Until the 19th century, the city was a papal residence. The sights of Terracina come from different eras. The temple of Jupiter was built in the 4th century BC, the Neapolitan gate was erected by the emperor Troyan, the Cathedral in the 17th century was rebuilt on the foundation of an ancient basilica (the mosaic floor has been preserved since the 5th century).
On the coast, ancient abbeys, Montecassino and Fossanova, are perfectly preserved. Their walls and buildings more than once served as scenery for television films about the Middle Ages.
Small town Sperlonga famous for caves, grottoes and interesting staircases. Visit is the cave of Tiberius, which was the residence of the emperor. It was decorated with 5 thousand Greek statues, today they are in the national city archaeological museum.
In ancient Gaete - A real collection of attractions: a fortress, ancient walls, ancient Roman villas, an ancient fort and Norman bell towers. Here is an important gospel shrine - Montagna Spaccata ("Split Mountain"). It is believed that after the crucifixion of Christ, mountains split in many parts of the world. One of these mountains is here in Gaet. A staircase carved in stone leads to the chapel of St. Philip Neri.
The residence of the Neapolitan kings was the small town of Formia. Here, at one time, Cicero lived. Formia has a small port where you can go to the nearest islands. Attraction is the grandiose statue of Jesus Christ.
To protect the natural landscapes, as well as the local unique flora and fauna in San Felice Circeo created a national park with karst grottoes and freshwater lakes. You can only move around the park on foot or by bicycle.
The beaches of the Riviera di Ulisse
Almost all the beaches of the resort are sandy, both wide and small, cozy. A gentle entry into the sea is especially suitable for families with children. Stone and pebble beaches - only in the area of Gaeta and San Felice Circeo. Impeccable cleanliness the beaches of the Riviera di Ulisse Since 1998 it has been awarded the EU Blue Flag. You can swim in the sea from May to October due to local climatic conditions. It is always a couple of degrees warmer than off the coast of the Adriatic.
The air in this area is very good for health due to the high content of iodine in it. By the way, Terracina is the second city in the world, after Acapulco, which has the highest iodine content in the air.
In the modern resort town of Sabaudia, a unique microclimate creates the salt lake Paola, which stretches along the coast. Between the lake and the sea is a long strip of sand dunes.
Recreation and entertainment on the Riviera di Ulisse
Resorts Riviera di Ulisse Ideal for family holidays. There has never been an abundance of entertainment venues. Life, basically, was measured and quiet. But modernity brings its own corrections. In an effort to satisfy the desires of tourists of different ages and preferences, local companies create establishments for outdoor activities. Nightclubs and bars in large numbers today are in San Felice Circeo. In Cassino built a modern water park "Haway Park". Diving centers, horse riding centers, yacht clubs and tennis courts were built along the coast.
But the main attraction for tourists here is still excursions. You can explore the sights on your own or as part of an excursion group. Excursions to Rome, Naples and the nearby islands are popular.
How to get to the Riviera di Ulisse
The flight from Kiev to Rome or Naples takes three hours. From any of these cities to coastal resorts - an hour away by car. Regular buses run constantly. You can also take the train. The path from Rome to Naples partially passes in tunnels, so the railway does not interfere with vacationers.

Modern hotels offer different levels of service - from economy class to luxury services. However, all vacationers without exception are available sunny clean beaches and historical heritage in the form of architectural and archaeological sites.
Holidays in the Riviera di Ulisse
A beach holiday in the Riviera di Ulisse is more than a hundred kilometers of the coast, located in ideal climatic conditions. To the south of Rome, right up to Naples, there are about a dozen miniature tourist towns, and each has several Riviera beaches. About them, as well as what to see and what to do on the Riviera di Ulisse, read our material!
Holiday at the resort
The specificity of the Riviera di Ulisse is that it is not a single tourist center or zone, but a whole placer of resort towns and villages. Each of them has its own rich history - and traditions of relaxation. At all resorts, only one thing remains unchanged: beaches.
- The most popular tourist resort of the Riviera is Terracina, formed back in the 9th century BC. e. It is famous not only for its advanced age, but also for the many preserved monuments of the ancient Roman era. Fortress walls, gates, forum, patrician villas - all this can be seen with your own eyes.
- Circeo (San Felice). The paradise that the Italian aristocracy has chosen for the construction of residences at all times - from the Romans to the Mussolini regime. Today, all this beauty has received the status of a national park. The proximity to Rome gives these places a special highlight: even the Vatican can be seen from the local mountains.
- Sabaudia. The real center of the bohemian life of the Riviera - this affects the number of hotels for tourists. There are few of them, and in general the cost of living in them is more expensive than in other resorts. Near a large lake.
- Sperlonga. No less than the former residence of the emperor Tiberius, and later - one of the fishing villages, in the mid-1960s turned into a small resort. Very atmospheric: narrow streets, stairs, traditional architecture for Italy. Be sure to see the caves and grottoes, which are rightfully one of the main local attractions.
- Gaeta. One of the most visited resorts of the Riviera, rich in architectural monuments. In addition to the cathedral and the ancient citadel, Montagna Spaccata - “Broken Mountain” is very popular, the chapel on the top of which is often visited by pilgrims.
- Formia The specific location makes Formia an ideal place for windsurfing - there are always many lovers of water sports. From here you can easily reach Naples, which you should definitely take advantage of and visit this wonderful city.
Beaches of the Riviera di Ulisse
There are many places for swimming on the Riviera - both habitual beaches with sand or pebbles, and fantastically shaped sites with rocky ledges, grottoes and caves. A large number of beaches of the Riviera have the Blue Flag - proof of environmental cleanliness. This is not surprising: many of the places for swimming are located in the national park.
Riviera di Ulisse is a sandy coastline. Pebble beaches are common only in Gaeta and Circeo. There are a lot of places for swimming, but we have selected the top 5 most popular for you.
- Piccolo Lido (Terracina). The place is paid and belongs to the hotel of the same name. The best option, combining excellent infrastructure with paired sunbeds, and activity (beach soccer and volleyball courts). Nearby there are a couple of small bars and cafes. But the main thing is that there is always free space here.
- Stabilimento Amerigo (Terracina). If you travel with children, Amerigo is an excellent choice: a smooth approach and shallow water, soft and clean sand. For lovers of pebble beaches, you can also pamper yourself - there are several sites with small stones.
- Da Franco (Circeo). A beach that takes into account the interests of all groups of vacationers is clean, tidy and leaves only a pleasant impression. You will have to pay for the entrance, but it's worth it. It is convenient to relax here both for families with children (playgrounds and a whole children's town), and youth (evening discos, which continue until dawn).
- Serapo (Gaeta). White sand beach is a real attraction for tourists from the surrounding resort towns. There are both paid and free zones (be prepared that there are almost no second places). Serapo is perfect for family vacations, and water sports enthusiasts can rent a boat or catamaran. Infrastructure - toilet, shower and changing cabins, there is a cafe nearby.
- Della Fontana (Sperlonga). As if descended from a tourist poster, this beach is ideal: sea, sand, landscape with an old coastal citadel and inaccessible cliffs. The place has free zones - but it is better to take care to come here in advance.
What to see in the Riviera di Ulisse
The beauty of the Riviera is that in addition to historical attractions, there is the opportunity to get acquainted with the amazing nature. Well, if you want to visit other cities or beaches - no problem: by car it will take a minimum of time.
- Visit national parks and reserves. Monte Orlando (near Gaeta), "Janola" (near Formia), Monte di Sсauri (Minturno is another of the many villages on the coast). Picturesque views of the cliffs and the sea, unspoiled nature, birds and animals - having visited these places, you begin to understand why the Riviera is called the "corner of Paradise" and the "Odyssey coast".
- Sanctuary of Jupiter (Terracino). The pagan temple was erected at an impressive height of about 200 m. In addition to purely historical value and a touch of antiquity, you can admire the breathtaking view from the top.
- Turkish Grotto (Gaeta). The origin of the name remains unknown, but the beauty of nature requires no explanation. Going down a long staircase to the water, you will appreciate the play of light and the amazing purity of the sea. It is really beautiful here, so be sure to take the time to get here.
- Castello Angioino-Aragonese (Gaeta). The huge citadel (area - 14 thousand square meters) on the coast has an ancient history - so ancient that it is still not known exactly when it was built. Most often mention the VI century BC. e. - with one part being built by the French and the other by the Spaniards. A must visit: an unforgettable experience is guaranteed.
- Mausoleum of Lucius Planck (Gaet). Another opportunity to get acquainted with the richest Roman architectural heritage. Here lies one of the brightest representatives of the nobility, who, together with Julius Caesar, decided the fate of half the world. The construction matches the scale of the figure: a stone cylinder is almost 14 m high and almost 30 m in diameter. One of the largest mausoleums in Italy is located at an impressive height of almost 170 m, so here you can still enjoy amazing views of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
What to do in the Riviera di Ulisse
Of course, the Riviera di Ulisse attracts tourists not only for its architectural attractions. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, nightlife and other amenities of resort leisure.
- Take a trip to the water park Haway Park (located in the village of Cassino near Naples). Large-scale entertainment: the park itself is the largest in the region and offers a wide variety of attractions. There is also extreme, so it will be interesting not only for children.
- Even if you are not a professional diver, this is not a reason to deny yourself the pleasure of enjoying the beauties of the underwater world. In this regard, as well as in terms of its ability to rent yachts and boats in the first place Terracina - there is a whole center Planetamare. You can hire a diving instructor, and swim on an island tour. For those who wish, there is a stable at the center where you can ride horses.
- Which resort without nightlife? The Riviera di Ulisse has a huge number of night clubs, restaurants and discos. A single listing will take several pages, so we will briefly talk about the most popular.
- La Bussola. A nightclub hosting open-air discos right on the beach. It is very popular (including among local).
- Chez Nina (Circeo). The nightclub is located in the Punta Rossa hotel, it has affordable prices, it is always full of youth. Please note that guests are free to use the hotel. Everyone else pays, but they get a loan to order drinks at the bar.
- Fortino (Sperlonga). The format is similar to La Bussola (in general, such discos are held in almost any city of the Riviera), but it differs in its original design. Here are real English lawns that surprisingly remain intact after nightly parties. Everything is very atmospheric, with illumination and until dawn.
When to go to Riviera di Ulisse
The high season here begins in June: water +22 ° C, air up to +28 ° C - at this time you can safely plan a trip. In July it is already a bit hot (for example, for babies): + 29 ... +31 ° C.
The largest number of tourists arrives on the Riviera in August, when the holiday season begins in Italy. Therefore, the first half of June or the “velvet season” should be considered optimal options with maximum comfort and without extreme heat. It lasts the whole of September; swimming is stopped here in early October.
Nature of the area
The plain spaces of the coast alternate with low, forested mountain ranges, tearing a strip of beaches and rocky headlands breaking off into the sea.
The alternation of flat and hilly landscapes diversifies the landscape, mountains also rise in the background. At the same time, the plains are quite extensive, and the beaches along them are wide, sandy, with a gentle approach. However, lovers of secluded rocky bays will find a suitable corner for swimming and sunbathing.
Surprisingly, after the Trojan War and the fall of Troy, some participants in those memorable events set sail from Troy and, as if by agreement, sooner or later landed on the Italian coast in the region of southern Lazio. The very first to arrive there was Aeneas, the Trojan hero whose wanderings were described by Virgil in his Aeneid. Not only did he arrive - the Romans subsequently descended from his marriage with the daughter of the local king Latina. And the name of the city of Gaeta on the Riviera di Ulisse, according to one legend, arose from the name of the nanny Aeneas, who died in this place (I even took the nanny with me from Troy!).
The hero of the opposing camp, Odysseus, also appeared on this coast. Having fallen under the spell of the queen Tsircei, Odysseus spent about a year on Mount Circeo, until she finally released him. And even warned of the upcoming strait with Scylla and Charybdis. In memory of those events, the coast became known as the Riviera di Ulisse (Odyssey coast).
This area with luxurious long sandy beaches and shady mountain forests was appreciated by the Romans. On the Odyssey coast, the remains of numerous Roman villas of varying degrees of conservation have been discovered.There were villas of emperors: Nero, Tiberius, Domitian, Commodus, the triumvirate of Lepidus, the speaker of Cicero.
Subsequently, the lowlands began to swamp (especially the Pontic lowland between Terracina and Circeo), malaria spread. Pirates prevailed from the sea. The villas were abandoned, and residents from lowlands moved to the mountain slopes, where they lived in their borgos under the protection of the fortress walls.
In the recent past, swamps were drained and lowlands were used for greenhouses and gardens, and sea resorts appeared on the coast itself.
Anzio and Nettuno
Anzio and Nettuno are the closest resorts to the Riviera di Ulisse to Rome. These cities are turning into each other.
A big plus of both resorts is convenient transport links to Rome.
In fact, the beach closest to Rome is in Lido di Ostia, you can get to it from Rome by public transport in half an hour, but if you have time, still locals prefer to go swimming in more attractive places.
Anzio Nettuno is famous for its wide beaches, fringed with palm trees and prickly pear, and in some places - with rocky walls or approaching villas.
The city of Antium, which lies at their base, is one of the oldest in Italy; it arose in the 9th century BC.
The emperors Nero and Caligula were born in Roman Antium. The ruins of the villa of Nero, which are the main attraction of Anzio, have been preserved. They are located near the lighthouse, near the beach of Nero.
Unfortunately, the city was badly damaged during the Second World War. Wide local beaches were chosen by the Americans for landing. About 7.8 thousand American paratroopers found their death here and were buried in Nettuno at the Military Cemetery. And in one of the villas that have survived to this day - Villa Adele - now houses a museum dedicated to these events. There is also a section on archaeological finds. Free summer concerts are held at Adele’s Villa Park.
Nettuno's most impressive attraction is Sangallo Fort, built in the early 16th century by order of Cesare Borgia.
Also, the city has preserved a nice historical center - Borgo Mediaavale.
These two resorts - Anzio and Nettuno - are kept apart from the rest of the resorts of the Riviera di Ulisse. From Nettuno to the next resort - Sabaudia - about 40 km. The remaining towns are located at a distance of 10-20 km from each other.
Sabaudia is the youngest resort of the Riviera di Ulisse. It was built by order of Mussolini in 200 days in 1934 and was positioned as a fashionable luxury resort for the elite of society.
The place is truly unique. No wonder the biosphere reserve suitable for Sabaudia is included in the UNESCO list. Imagine a narrow sand spit, on the one side of which the sea, on the other - long narrow lakes-estuaries. Scythe is covered with dunes. The strip of beaches stretches for 30 km. On the other side of the lakes is a protected Mediterranean forest, selva. In Sabaudia, you can combine rest on the sea with rest on the lakes, swim in the lakes by canoe, go to the mountains.
On the southernmost lake - Lago di Paolo - are the ruins of the villa of another Roman emperor - Domitian. This lake is connected to the sea by a canal dug by the Romans.
Further south, Mount Circeo rises - 541 m. This is the highest point of the Riviera di Ulisse.
On the border of the resort there is a watch tower Torre Paola, from which begins the ascent to the peak of Circeo - Picco di Circe. The route is quite difficult and steep, but it is the fastest way to climb. From the side of San Felice Circeo the path is easier and longer (about 2 hours).
For lovers of more relaxed walks, Circeo National Park offers routes of varying difficulty through various natural areas: selva, dunes, mountains.
From the same Torre Paola, you can walk along the sea to the next town of the Riviera di Ulissa - San Felice Circeo.
San Felice Circeo
San Felice Circeo is located on the other side of Mount Circeo.
Its historic center - tiny but charming - perched on the side of a mountain. Just above it, the remains of the ancient Acropolis with fragments of the stunning Cyclops Wall, composed of huge stone blocks fitted to each other and kept without mortar, have been preserved.
On the bottom of the cape, caves stretch along the sea, in one of which the remains of a Neanderthal were discovered.
The villa of the emperor of San Felice Circeo can not boast, but he has a well-preserved villa of triumvir Marcus Emilia Lepida, who ruled Rome for 5 years (together with Octavian Augustus and Mark Anthony).
The lower city of the UFH, its resort part is, in fact, a holiday village, which was chosen by the artistic elite of Italy. In particular, Anna Magnani was very fond of this place, in whose honor the local cinema was even named. The town is actually very nice, low-rise, drowning in flowers.
Details about San Felice Circeo - here.
In about 15-20 minutes, a local bus will take you from San Felice Circeo to Terracina.
After a half-asleep PMS, Terracina seems full-blooded and energetic. No wonder she was given the title of capital of the Riviera di Ulisse.
When the neighboring towns are just getting ready for the holiday season, Terracina is already full of vacationers, the beaches are inhabited, people are splashing in the water. I was on the Odyssey coast at the end of May, and only in Terracina resort life was already seething. The water was very warm, and the beaches pleased with a comfortable, gentle slope.
The historical center of Terracina is large and interesting, the Appian Way passes through it. The main decoration of Terracina is the ancient temple of Jupiter on Mount Monte Sant'Angelo.
The next city south of Terracina is Sperlonga.
The historic center is located at the top of the ridge, on both sides of which are long beaches. Hotels lined the north beach, and a camping area stretches along the south beach. By the way, in the "gaps" between the cities also come across campsites.
The old town of Sperlonga is a white house, scattered in different directions throughout the mountain. This is not a city, but a wonderful maze!
And if you go from Sperlonga to the south (along the camping beach), then after 10-15 you will come to the archaeological area with a museum, the ruins of the villa of the emperor Tiberius and a magnificent grotto, once decorated with numerous sculptural compositions on the theme of the Odyssey.
The strip of beaches is temporarily interrupted by mountain ranges approaching the sea. A couple of tunnels - and after another ridge, a long beach begins again. And this is Gaeta.
The beach rests on Mount Orlando, and a little higher, on the side of the mountain, stands the Church of Santissima Trinita, on both sides of which are deep fissures-faults. One of them is called Turk's Grotto, and the other is Broken Rock. Both must see.
At the top of the mountain is the mausoleum of the major Roman commander Lucius Planck, a friend of Caesar.
Gaeta's historic center is on the other side of Mount Orlando. Anjou-Aragonese castle on the cape, the delightful Gothic church of San Francesco, the Duomo with an unusual Byzantine-Norman tower, the Church of the Annunziata with the Golden Grotto - there is also something to see here.
Formia looks more modest than the previous Gaeta and Sperlonga, but its great advantage is the presence of the Formia-Gaeta railway station, through which the Rome-Naples branch passes. Convenience of transport adds liveliness to the city.
From the seaport of Formia, ferries and "missiles" depart to Ischia and to the Pontic Islands: Ponza and Ventotene. Through Formia, as well as through Terracina, the ancient Appian Way passes.
In Formia, one of the largest antique tanks of the 1st century BC, as well as the remains of aqueducts, has been preserved.
As in previous coastal cities, during the time of the Roman Empire, numerous Roman villas were built here, in particular the villa of Mammur (its ruins are preserved), the villa of Maecenas, a friend of the emperor Augustus, and the villa of the famous Roman speaker Mark Tullius Cicero. Here, in 43 BC on the way to his villa, Cicero was killed. Its mausoleum in the form of a round tower 24 m high is one of the attractions of Formia.
In Formia lived Saint Erasmus, who was martyred in 303. Subsequently, his body was buried in Gaet. San Erasmo is the patron saint of Formia. The city has a church and monastery of San Erasmo.
When the city was ravaged by barbarians, the inhabitants moved deep into the territory, and only after the Neapolitan King Charles II of Anjou built a fortress on the shore, a borgo Mola appeared under the walls of the fortress. Later, another Borgo appeared - Castellone, walled with 12 towers, of which only one has survived. Another tower was built in 1377 by the Caetani family that ruled at that time. Only in 1863, both Borgos were united in one city of Formia. A cast-iron statue of Christ rises above the city. From the foot of the statue you can see Formia from a height.
Neapolitan kings also liked to relax in Formia. The summer residence of Ferdinand II (now a hotel in it) has been preserved.
In Formia there is a long, pretty promenade. The line of beaches is a chain of semicircle holes. Opposite each such semicircle, a pier is built of stones. It can be seen that there are strong winds, not without reason the resort is popular with surfers. In other cities there are no such malls.

What else to see in the vicinity
Unfortunately, public transport in Southern Lazio is not as well developed as, say, in Rimini or Veneto. It will be difficult to get to some places without a car.
40 km from Formia is the city of Cassino, famous for its magnificent Benedictine monastery Montecassino. The monastery was founded by the founder of the Benedictine order of St. Benedict in 529 on the side of a mountain (almost on top). The monastery was destroyed during World War II and subsequently completely rebuilt. From Formia to Cassino can be reached by train. The monastery is uphill - 9 km. There are buses from the station to Montecassino. I don’t know how much you can rely on a schedule.
Cassino is also located water park Haway Park.
20 km from Terracina is Cistercian Fossanov Abbey (founded in 1135) with a park and a museum of the Middle Ages. In this abbey, St. Thomas Aquinas died.
10 km from Terracina there is an interesting natural site Campo Soriano (Campo Soriano) - feather-shaped rocks. My neighbor from the hotel went there - our owner threw him to the trail, he returned on foot back.
My friend drove from Terracina to Sermonetu and I highly recommended this medieval town owned by the Caetani family. Near Sermoneta is located Ninfa - a unique abandoned city, on the ruins of which a magnificent garden is arranged. The garden can only be accessed on certain days from April to October. You can book tickets for affordable days on the website https://www.giardinodininfa.eu/events/ If you don’t have a car, you need to get to the Latina station and either take a taxi (about 12 euros one way) or adjust to the Kotral bus . From the station to Sermoneta - 6 km, to Nymph - 4 more.
However, such trips to local attractions are more likely for those who have already seen Rome and Naples well. Many people choose the Riviera di Ulisse in order to combine a beach holiday with an acquaintance with these great cities, alternating vacation at sea with trips to Rome, Naples, Pompeii. Local travel agencies offer trips even to Capri and Amalfi (a short trip).
The neighboring coastal towns also need to be seen (Gaet and Sperlonga - must!). From the ports of Formia, Terracina, San Felice Circeo ships go to the Pontic Islands: Ponza and Ventotene. You can take a full-day excursion with lunch and swimming on the beaches of these islands (the beaches of Ponza are among the ten best beaches in Italy).
Food, hotels, prices
In an article about Terracina, I mentioned that a fish menu is presented in great variety on the coast, and it is very inexpensive. Pleased with prices in local supermarkets, including wine.
It is better to book hotels in advance, there are much fewer here than, say, in Rimini or Lido di Jesolo.
Among the offers are many villas and private houses - it is more profitable for a company to book an entire house.
The resorts of the Riviera di Ulisse are quite democratic. At package prices, the Odyssey coast goes right behind Rimini and Lido di Jesolo. The difference between the Riviera di Ulisse is that the rest are mostly local, and there are relatively few offers of package tours.
However, if you are gathered on the Odyssey coast, it is easy to organize such a vacation yourself:
Cheap Flights Calendar
- or rent a house with the owners (registering in the Airbnb system by my invitation link, you will receive a discount of $ 25 for the first reservation, provided that the reservation will be> $ 75).
- From Rome or Naples, take an electric train to the selected town (contact the hotel owners first if they can meet you at the station - if you can’t, you can get there by bus). Or immediately rent a car at the airport.
And finally, I’ll list main advantages of the Riviera di Ulisse:
- sandy gently sloping beaches ideal for children
- availability of free beaches
- proximity to Rome and Naples
- interesting towns nearby with unique attractions (Broken Mountain, Tiberius Grotto, Temple of Jupiter, Acropolis with the Cyclopsic Wall)
- the possibility of mountain walks in the Circeo National Park
- boat trips to the Pontic Islands.
If you love vibrant cities with an active resort life, choose Terracina (closer to the center), love silence - go to Sabadia. The remaining towns are intermediate options.
I hope my recommendations will help you organize your trip to the Riviera di Ulisse.
