San Felice Circeo is a small village still enclosed in its ancient roman walls, with ancient origins. It is one of the classic seaside villages with breathtaking views and the Mediterranean scent that you breathe in its alleys of white houses. But the Mediterranean one is certainly not the only scent we smell. Among the streets of San Felice Circeo there is also a scent of mystery, myth and legend, which cannot fail to remind us of Ulysses (the Latin name of the cunning Greek hero, king of Ithaca). In the Odyssey, Homer tells how Odysseus and his companions disembark in the island of Aeaea, where they fall victims of an evil spell by the sorceress Circe. Homer narrates of a wonderful and wild land, referring to San Felice Circeo and its surroundings. To this day, the profile of the sorceress Circe would be visible in the silhouette of the mountain.
And so, captured by this mythical atmosphere, we will go to discover what to see in San Felice Circeo, letting ourselves be seduced by its magic. The village of San Felice Circeo is located on the homonymous mountain, Circeo mountain, a small promontory that rises in the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. We are in Lazio, in the center of the most significant promontory of the province of Latina, from which is only 20 km and definitely worth a visit, especially if you are in the agro-pontine area.
San Felice Circeo, like the whole promontory, is inserted within the Circeo National Park, one of the most heterogeneous parks that we have in Italy and that preserves intact four natural reserves, dunes, flora and fauna with a typically Mediterranean character. There are many activities and events that take place within the park. Paths to follow, trekking, canoeing, guided tours, theme trails and much more. A real paradise for nature lovers.
