What to do in Gaeta
What to do in Gaeta? Thousands of soldiers wonder what to do in Gaeta everytime they see it in the list of the facilities provided by the Ministry of Defence for the employees.
Although it isn’t known as Sicily or Apulia, Gaeta is a beautiful seaside place and that is why it is called the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian sea”.
For many years Gaeta has been awarded with the Blue Flag Certification. It is also known for its seven white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, the regional park Riviera of Ulysses, the sheer cliffs on the sea and its artistic and historical sites.
Strategically located between Rome and Naples, Gaeta is full of history also thanks to its position.
So it was during the Ancient Rome, the Papal State, the Kingdom of Naples and during the modern era. Thus, Gaeta received an important cultural heritage.
The alleys of the old “Borgo Sant’Elena”, the Sanctuary of the Santissima Annunziata, the Angevin-Aragonese Castle, the Sanctuary of the Split Mountain and the Turkish cave make Gaeta fascinating, full of history and for all ages.
It is not surprising that, both in summer and winter, Gaeta organizes events at international level with artists, comedians and musicians from all over the world to entertain the tourists.
Gaeta is now considered one of the most important tourist destination in Italy for those who love the sea and the sun, for those who want to experience the Southern Lazio culture and for those who love sports and nature.
