Gaeta, fairytale destination on the Tyrrhenian sea
If you are going to Gaeta for the holidays, expect to stay in one of the most exclusive destinations of the Tyrrhenian coast. The beach of Serapo is the most popular shore in town, where you will find crystal clear waters shading from emerald green to turquoise as well as beach facilities. Just after that, there’s the rocky coast of Fontania with stunning natural attractions such as bays and caves.
Among the things to see during your holiday to Gaeta, the Montagna Spaccata (Cracked Mountain) is absolutely worth a visit. This is a truly unique nature masterpiece, which is home to the well-known Grotta del Turco – from up here, the view is stunning. According to the legend, when Jesus died the mountain split into two. A Turkish man didn’t believe it was true so got there, put his hand in the fissure and said “As if it was ricotta” while his hand got stamped on the rock.
The old town of Gaeta is the area where tourists crowd to walk by the promenade or spend time in a café just in front of the sea. The historic centre is worth more than a visit since it is rich in cultural attractions such as the Church of San Francesco, the Cathedral and the Sanctuary of Santissima Annunziata. During your holidays in Gaeta, you will have the chance to enjoy many events in one of the most picturesque medieval towns on the sea.
