San Felice Circeo Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 57 photos

San Felice Circeo:another wonderful city 8 km from my house...an island? Maybe. Many places of the Mediterranean Coast affirm to be the place where the Maga Circe lived, but not many have the same number of resemblance with the island described by Homer. From the sea, the promontory really looks like a magic island, especially in the warm summer mornings, when its peak is covered by amazing haze or when the wind brings a dense sea fog and it seams like Circe will soon appear. Although many are the myth in this area, reality also brings wonderful discoveries. The ancient village of Circeii was build in the VII century B.C. by Volsci, as shown by the ruins of the old village walls. In 393 B.C. it became a roman colony which fight against Rome in the Social Wars. During the I century many villas were built in the countryside and on the coast of the Lake Paola. One of them is supposed to be the residence of Emperor Domitianus. Nowdays, the center of the old village (which belonged to the Templar Knigts in the Medioeval period and then became nothing more than a prison, was populated bu civilians only in the XVII century) welcomes the visitor with many little shops, like all turist villages on the coast of Campania.
