Sabaudia and San Felice Circeo are close neighbours but with strikingly different characters and centuries apart. But what they have in common is the sea, attractive surroundings, and a handful of elegant boutiques.
SAMPLE ITINERARY - All of our private beach trips require an early start so we generally pick you up at your accommodation at 7am. The route is attractive once we are out of the city and we break for a 'second breakfast'/refreshment stop, approximately midway between Rome and our destination.
San Felice Circeo is well known being the site of various Neanderthal findings and also a place strongly connected with mythology, sorcery and the famous Circeo Witch (Maga Circe) who fell in love with Ulysses. We start with a guided walk ascending partly up the Circeo National Park promontory amidst attractive Mediterranean vegetation, where you will see ancient Cyclopean walls, arriving at a beauty spot from where to admire the stunning panoramas, plus the possibility to visit one of the notable Neanderthal caves still accessible. There will be a brief guided walk of the old town and some time to yourselves to explore, shop, enjoy another coffee and admire further panoramic views.
If a boat ride** is part of your itinerary we descend to the small harbour by car for a 2-hour excursion around the headland.
If you have an interest in Futurist architecture we can arrange for a guided walk of Sabaudia, which is a modern town built by Mussolini located a short drive away.
There are several options for lunch - overlooking a lake, overlooking the sea part way up the promontory or at the beach club.
After lunch spend several hours relaxing, sunbathing and swimming until our departure time back to Rome, which is usually around 5pm.
All of our beach trips can be further tailored.
NB* we don't run this tour at weekends.
**The boat ride is not yet available but we hope to be able to confirm this soon.
This excursion requires a full day.
We have chosen an establishment for the beach that has AirCon and a restaurant with sea views, for the hottest weather. If it's not so hot there is a casual beach club with fewer amenities if you prefer something more laid-back and rustic off-the-beaten-path.
*Just for Two*
This year we have decided to offer a special 'couples' rate, when there are just two adults on the day trip. Select "JUST4TWO SFC" from the menu on our contact page.
