We decided that we needed a break from historical sights and busy cities, so we ventured south of Rome to the coast. We found a tiny little town, perched on a cliff above the Mediterranean called Sperlonga. This town looked like what we imagined Greece to be like- white washed buildings, narrow alleys, and amazing views of a calm blue sea. We weren't the only people who fell in love with Sperlonga, it was a place where ancient Roman emperors used to vacation too. There were ruins here of their summer residences and grottos.

All this was very interesting but to us, we liked the beach best!! The air was hot and the water was Hawaii warm and very clear. There was even a day with waves big enough to surf, so we had everything we needed! And like everywhere else in Italy, the food was amazing and the people were super friendly.
