San Felice Circeo

Destination Weddings in San Felice Circeo

Some say that San Felice Circeo is the place where the Homeric Circe lived. From the sea, the promontory of Circeo appears like a magical island.

Build in the VII century B.C. by Volsci, the ancient village of Circeii became a Roman colony in 393 B.C. after 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 said to be the residence of Emperor Domitian.

Later the center of the old village passed to the Templar Knights and then became nothing more than a prison.

Today San Felice Circero is a big tourist attraction and vacation area.
