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 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.

A small but interesting museum with some good exhibits. English translations through out. Was glad of the air conditioning when we arrived after a long walk in quite intense heat! Really enjoyed walking to the Grotto itself with its fish ponds.

interesting sculptures and the roman villa with the "grotta" is a nice site, the museum is small but it is worth going
