Gaeta is a charming harbour town with lots to offer. Great sights, restaurants and especially right now the Christmas lights. Very worth a nighttime visit.

We departed Gaeta on a small cruise ship heading down the coast. It is a beautiful harbor and a very nice and scenic town. The beaches are huge and pretty on the north end of town.

You can try to eat at restaurant " La Salute " , near the harbour of Gaeta. They have good and fresh fish products and it's not expensive. It's be better a reservation because in the summer is ever full.

You can also hire a car service. The driver we took back to the train station when we left regularly drives back and forth to the Rome airport to bring people to Gaeta. Just a thought.
