Itri is certainly one of the villages worth a mention among the southern area of the Province of Latina.It is located strategically, under the Aurunci mountains yet just a few kilometers away from great beach towns such as Sperlonga and Gaeta. That's why Itri is among the most interesting destinations of the Pontine area, attracting tourists from all countries.
One of the most recognisable attractions of Gaeta is the Church of San Francesco, majestic gothic cathedral dominating the medieval town.Financed by Charles II of Naples and founded by the same St Francis, the works for the church started in 1222 and ended only during the XIV century.
The Villa of Tiberius was built on a preexisting Republican-Age Villa. Tiberius lived here until 26 AD, when he decided to move to Capri after a landslide.Let's figure out how the historical complex is structured.In addition to the house, there are thermal baths, water supplies and a dock, that let ships stop in the area. Among the main attractions of the Villa there is also the well-known natural grotto.
The Sanctuary of the Montagna Spaccata (Cracked Mountain) is located on the slope of the promontory of Mount Orlando, within the Urban Regional Park of Gaeta.Going up 35 steps makes you immerse yourself in a surreal ambience, within the main fissure between the rocks.
