I would recommend visiting if you are staying in the area or nearby. There is some interesting pieces within the museum from the local area. However many artefacts and pieces recovered are in other European cities. Interesting day trip but nothing extraordinary

Near the beach at Sperlonga is this wonderful place full of history and legends. Walking among the ruins accompanied by the sea breeze is really relaxing. I was disappointed that the grotto can be visited only partially. We had problems with parking leaving the car...More

What a treat to visit such an architectural gem of a museum housing the excavated exhibits from the villa of Tiberius. So beautifully laid out with English language information. From the museum signposts direct you along a path to the ancient fishponds and cave. Wonderful...More

Please don't miss seeing this museum when staying in Sperlonga. A small selection but beautiful, and moving too. Maybe because everything is so of a piece, the sea, the light, the air and these beautiful objet d'arts.

This is incredibly cool! The museum and grotto get very few visitors. We were basically alone in rooms with 2000 year old artifacts with no ropes keeping you back or any visible security. You can reach out and touch history- not that I'm recommending you...More

This is a small museum but very enjoyable. The main attraction is Emperor Tiberius' grotto and remains of his villa. You need to do this with a tour guide who can explain the history of Tiberius and bring this all to life. We loved the...More

So this place is great even if you don't care about archaeology. It's a very small site...just a small museum (that houses RIDICULOUS ancient Greek statues--very rare, since most got burned in later years) and then the cave where Tiberius had his fabulous dining room,...More

This is a three in one attraction, also known as the Villa of Tiberius. It is a museum, an archaeological site as well as a grotto.

My wife and I went here for our Anniversary. The inside museo tour was very cool but it continues outside throughout the Villa and cave area. Very cool and well preserved.
