If you don't feel like walking, a city bus stopping in front of the gate , every hour, will connect you to both places and also to the Medieval citadel.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    when we asked around. If not the first person understood he asked the next - and the next - and so on, and soon there was a whole group helping us out.
    For children there is a nice park - playground - with trampolines and different things 'to let out some energy' over in the centre of town.
    We also accidentally walked into a market on Sunday afternoon - a lot of fun to watch on all the different tables.
    Thank you Adriana for your hospitality.

We lived on the balcony with the amazing views over the bay watching the boats and birds. The apartment was close enough to walk to the shops, the old town and the gorgeous sandy beaches. There were steps to climb to get... more

Very spacious apartment with a glorious view. If you want to try and live like Italians then this is an ideal spot. Gaeta doesn't just depend on tourism, so feels like a real town even out of season. Local shops, restaurants and markets, including daily fish market a short walk away always bustling with locals. Beach is a walk away... more

She made us feel very welcome and gave a lot of important information. The house was big enough for five... more
