This beautiful mountainous / coastal region of SOUTH LAZIO
(within the provinces of Latina and Frosinone)
is rich in history, architecture, culture and natural beauty.
Indeed it is blessed in many ways :
The beautiful coastline of the Riviera Di Ulisse / Ulysses Riviera (sometimes also
know as the Costa Pontina or Pontine Coast) is considered to be one of the most beautiful
stretches of coastline in Italy.
It takes its name from Greek mythology. According to Homer's ancient work the "Odessey"
and Virgil's later work the "Aeneid", the legendary Greek hero Odysseus / Ulysses,
having fled from the Aegean following the fall of Troy, for 10 years navigated the
waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and eventually set foot on these golden Italian shores.
This picturesque Riviera Di Ulisse, with its numerous golden sandy beaches, rocky
coves, hidden caves and sheltered harbours, and the pretty seaside resorts of Sperlonga,
Gaeta, Formia, Terracina, San Felice Circeo and the Pontine Islands, is noted for
its temperate climate, and rainless summers. The rocky cliffs are a haven for Free
Yet close by are the dramatic Aurunci, and Ausoni, mountains which border the Southern
Appenines and the Abruzzo National Park. This is an area of outstanding natural
beauty, with a diversity of landscapes: Pretty medieval hill towns; verdant tranquil
hillsides; olive groves; rivers, lakes; craggy peaks and protected nature reserves.
Perfect for Bird Watchers and Lovers of Nature.
