Is it worth spending a day in Circeo Natural Park?

Answer

Is it worth spending a day in Circeo Natural Park?

Circeo Natural Park has many wonderful things to do and see while out enjoying the fresh air. You can hike through the forest or take a walk along the stunning sand dunes. The "lestre" area of the park was once a small village, and small huts remain to see how locals used to live.

While visiting Paola Lake, take time out to visit the archeological remains of the house of Emperor Domitianus, which includes thermal baths, an outhouse and the sinks used for the collection of rainwater.

In Circeo Natural Park, you’ll get the chance to see a large variety of flora and fauna as well as wildlife. Have a camera ready; you might catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a deer foraging.

    Traveler Stories

    Why I love Sabaudia

    The moment I laid my eyes on the beautiful city of Sabaudia, I instantly made the decision to return the following year. Here’s why...

    The famed Italian hospitality is more noticeable here than anywhere else I have been in Italy. I was welcomed at a cozy little restaurant with some of the most stunning traditional dishes of Italy, such as ravioli and crisp, chilled white wines.

    The long beach of white sand and scenic dunes is equally stunning, which is why the beach was one my favorite places in Sabaudia. During fall the beach is fairly quiet, frequented mostly by Italian visitors.

    I have visited the city on numerous occasions, my favourite time being summer, when the city, and especially the beach, turns into a kaleidoscope of cultures.

    Can you explain the fascist symbolism around the city of Sabaudia?

    Answer

    Can you explain the fascist symbolism around the city of Sabaudia?

    Sabaudia was a building project of the fascist Italian government to reclaim marsh areas and build them up as strongholds. The lictor’s ax, named for the Roman lictors that carried it, is a popular fascist symbol. This sign also links the fascist regime with the great Roman Empire and was seen as a symbol of power. This sign can be found on reliefs, fountains and walls throughout Sabaudia.

    As you walk through the city of Sabaudia, notice all the tower-shaped buildings. To the Fascist regime, the tower was a symbol of power and solidity. There is a tower on the Casa del Fascio, and the flagpole on the Opera Nazionale Balilla building is meant to resemble a tower.
