About Gaeta

The genteel town of Gaeta is one of the most beautiful cities in southern Italy. This small town's ancient walls, narrow alleys and seven fabulous sandy beaches, lie in a magnificent location on a sparkling bay. And it's 'the' place to get a feel for the best of southern Italy - great food, friendly locals and a sense of history that ties it all together.

Once a defensive stronghold, this town is still partly fortified today. The imposing Angevine-Aragonese castle is currently used by the Italian military. Monte Orlando, the prominent hill separating new Gaeta from the old city, is an urban nature park with stunning views of the sea. Here you'll also find an ancient Roman Mausoleum and Split Mountain - the cliffs overlooking the sea are split from top to bottom.

In the very heart of the town is delightful Serapo Beach. And on Fontania beach you can see the ruins of an ancient Roman Villa. If you're looking for seafood, you've come to the right place. Most Gaeta restaurants specialise in dishes featuring local fish and shellfish. You'll also see plenty of the famous Gaeta olives - yes, this is where they come from! Don't miss the gelato at El Tiburon, at the far end of the old city.
