Geocache Description:

Versione italiana.
Lungo la litoranea Flacca, che porta da Terracina a Gaeta, passando per Sperlonga. Durante la costruzione della strada nel 1957, venne alla luce un deposito di frammenti marmorei. Furono fatte ricerche e scavi che portarono alla luce la Villa di Tiberio. Negli anni ’60 fu edificato un museo che contiene molti dei reperti ritrovati e che vale senza dubbio la pena di essere visto. Dopo si puo’ proseguire per la visita della villa e della stupenda grotta facente parte del complesso. Qui sono stati rinvenuti quattro celebri gruppi scultorei , definiti "L’Odissea di marmo", rappresentanti le imprese di Ulisse. Spezzoni delle sculture sono conservati nel museo. Da notare che questa è stata definita una delle scoperte piu’ sensazionali dello scorso secolo.
English version.
The location is positioned on the “via Flacca”, the road going from Terracina to Gaeta, crossing Sperlonga. In the year 1957, during the road construction, many marble peaces were found. So excavations and researches were done and Villa Tiberio was discovered. Then in the sixties a museum, containing all the finds, was built. The museum is really worthy to see. After that you can visit the “villa” and the gorgeous grotto which is part of the complex. In the grotto were found four famous sculptures named the “marble Odyssey” that represents the adventurous Ulysses’ travel. Big peaces of the sculpture are shown in the museum. This is considered one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the last century.
