Seen from the valley, the Circeo promontory seems a fairy place and, after all, welcoming. If this is true for its rocky coasts and beaches, it can not be said of its slopes, especially if Circe’s peak is chosen as a destination , at over 500 meters above sea level.
The rise from Torre Paola is breathtaking and steep, it offers breathtaking views of the coast.
For the return there are two possible roads: the very steep “Direttissima”, a path between the holm oaks that offer an inconvenience and the need to avoid reaching the valley (literally) the promontory, and the suggestive (but very long) via del crinale, which winds along the promontory and ends at the square of the “crosses”, near the cyclopean walls.
Whatever path you choose, make sure you use hiking shoes and appropriate clothing; to avoid the hottest hours of the day and to make oneself sufficient expected.
In any case, especially if you are at first experiences, rely on a guide. This is an experience that can help you get rid of your data.
