Beaches near Rome: Santa Severa...

All hail the Belvedere torso!

Like St. Augustine once said: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."

One time I brought my grandfather to this castle when he was almost ninety years old. It was splendid. Also, the locals say this is the best place to hunt for ricci (sea urchins).

That is an awesome looking castel. Do you have photos of the interior? ~Al

none of the interior. it's all being restored now, but great for tourism and some of it is open to the public.
