1 Gaeta Italy is built in a panoramic and strategic position of Mount Orlando promontory, and today is a well known seaside resort. 

Built as Formia port, it was then transformed into a fortress during the Middle Ages. After several sieges, in 1860 it was conquered by the Piedmontese army as the last step of Italy union.

The town is split into three areas: 
	the medieval center, built around the severe Castle dominating the town, with the 11th century cathedral and its wonderful Arabic-Norman bell tower (symbol of the town), the Annunziata baroque church and its rich decorations, and the famous Grotta d'Oro: 
	Porto Salvo fishermen hamlet, with the pictoresque Via Indipendenza and the oriental-looking small alleys; 
	Serapo beach with hotels and tourist structures.
