The Forest - Today called "Selva di Circe", is the only example of plain forest with a natural vegetation dominated by the presence of deciduous oaks; despite the hydraulic reclaiming, given the geo-morphological features of the territory where it vegetates, an old coastal dune which consolidated during the centuries shows still today wide areas called "piscine", seasonally flooded by meteoric waters.
The Circeo Promontory - a calcareous relief reaching 541 meters above sea-level. It is without a doubt the most particular landscape element of the whole Pontina area. Its inner slope, called "quarto freddo" is covered by a big thermophilous forest, while on the opposite slope, the so-called "quarto caldo", facing South and next to the sea, more extreme environmental conditions determine a less luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation. The presence of several caves on different levels of the slope facing the sea makes this area interesting both from a geo-speleological point of view, for the finds which have been discovered, and from a prehistorical point of view.
At National Park of Circeo, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
