Gaeta is one of the most beautiful towns in south-central Lazio region, but you won’t find it in many guidebooks. It is mainly visited by Italians who flock to its beaches to soak up the sun.
As you walk along the main boardwalk by the sea and look up to the imposing castle, you get a sense of the history and the changing rulers in times gone by of this strategic coastal town. In Gaeta there is always plenty to do, from hiking Monte Orlando to seeing ancient ruins to wandering the old, narrow streets to shop and eat.
Visiting Gaeta is a great way to get a taste of Southern Italy – great food, friendly residents, tons of ambiance and a sense of history that ties everything together.
