Set between Rome and Naples amid the so-called Ulysses Riviera, gorgeous Gaeta overlooks the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea. Its history as a resort dates back to Imperial Rome. Nearby sites include the first-century BC mausoleum of general Lucius Munatius Plancus. Its old town is mostly medieval, showcased by narrow alleys, the massive 13th-century castle and the 12th-century Cathedral of Assunta e Sant'Erasmo. For relaxing, lovely and central Serapo Beach is a favored locale.

We were on an extended 8 day trip to Italy. Gaeta was going to be the rest and relax and explore some areas and Rome was the daily sighseeing. Spaccata is highly recommended. We walked up the hill and it was a quick 15 minute walk up and made it to the church. Went inside and took the steps down (and then up) to the split mountain. It was very picturesque. This is the only place in Gaeta where I saw english signs and it was helpful to read and understand the importance of this location.

The reason I came to this sanctuary is because I'd read about a small interior chapel, with a gilded ceiling resembling that of the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.
Pope Pius IX fled to Gaeta during the Republican revolt and remained there for 9 months. During those months he came to the small interior chapel to pray daily and it bore great fruit: the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.
The chapel remains a gem of Criscuolo's 16th century work. It's moving from both an artistic and religious sense and is completely free and open...

wonderful corner between Naples and Rome. the beach is beautiful and not crowed at all even in august when all italians are going to have their holidays. There is a small bar, that is a bit expensive but it is worth for the position. also there is a part where you can reach the nudist sector.

Never been there, unfortunately the sight is totally abandoned and need urgent restoration works, but the facade is a stunning example of early gothic style perched on the city and with a breathtaking view on the gulf. I would have been able to enter it, but it's currently closed to the public.

Hard to get to! Took B line bus from Formia, getting off at Gianola. From here a long walk, 15 minutes or so. Badly signposted, but we found the Porticciolo Romano, Grotta della Janara, and 36 pillars. Very nice, there were other ruins but access was not given, due to works being done. Please note, you need to get back on the same bus, same direction, as it does a loop and comes back a different way!!! We figured this out after waiting over an hour!

If you visit the Sanctuary of Montagna Spaccata, do not miss visiting this grotto which ends directly in the sea and where the waves create great light effects. Igt is however unfortunate that you cannot descend (a total of 300 steps) all the way down to the edge of the water for safety reasons (falling stones in particular).
While there is no entrance charge to visit this site, you are however asked to make a donation....

...unfortunately opening hours are so rigid. The guy with the key sent us out before closure time and was so unpatient so we did not have time to look around completely. But we noticed the rich ornamentation and decent architecture. Hope to retrun here sometime and spend here quality time.
