A beautiful open air site that I recommend you to visit. This site was for centuries hidden in the sea and the earth was covering all the roman ruins: the villa and the pool of Tiberius with these incredible enormous statues. The cave is really...More

By train, but will be a long trip. You have to go to Roma and after to Terracina. I do not know if there is a train Terracina - Sperlonga.

According to the website it opens 8.30 am to 7.30 pm, ticket costs 5 euro. Only closed Jan 1st, May 1st, 25 December. That seems crazy they are open every day of the week....but that's the official info!
