The magnificent Gulf of Gaeta
The Gulf of Gaeta as seen from the beautiful church S Francesco and beyond the lovely statue called The Religion by L Persico.
Address: Walk uphill on any staircase in the medieval area
Tiberius' cave Entrance
I don't think that I have ever seen so many fish in the one place that weren't at the market and ready to be eaten. Visiting Tiberius' cave, Sperlonga was quite an experience for me. The cave is situated on the main road just a couple of kms from Sperlonga township, but shorter if you walk via the beach.
Address: Coastal road south of Rome.
Directions: About 1 hour drive south of Rome.
The entry to National Museum in Rome
There is such a lot of history in the National Museum in Rome.
Address: Opposite Rome train terminal
Directions: Walk past the bus depot and carefully cross the road
National Museum, Rome
The National Museum of Rome would be a hard place to miss given that is centrally situated just across from the train terminal in Rome. The garden entry is an interesting place with an unusual fountain (shaped like a giant chalice) in the centre, which is surrounded by a host of sculptures, pots and burial containers.
Directions: Walk out of Rome station, straight past all of the busses and taxi rank.........be careful crossing the roads (very wide at this point). Have a cafe on the corner, very nice.
All roads lead to Planco?
from a distance, but when you are at the bottom and walking in ever decreasing circles along a rocky track (in some places), you feel like you might never reach the top.
There seem to be a number of roads all starting from different points but ultimately they meet at the mausoleum of Munazio Planco.
by walking up Mount Orlando and taking photographs looking back. It is a quite large township really.
Painting is something that I would love to be better at and when I first saw this view, I wondered if I could capture it on canvas.
The view is of the Gulf of Gaeta as seen from the top of Mount Orlando and I have had a number of attempts at recreating it. So far unsuccessful. I will copy it to here when and if I am ever successful.
Address: Top of Mount Orlando in Gaeta.
Directions: Head upwards from the bus terminus and you will eventually come to the top of the mountain. You can actually walk right around to get great shots of the coastline, Mediterranean, township etc........well worth the trip
Medieval home in ruins.
A slow walk (I suggest down) off Mount Orlando Gaeta will afford you not only magnificent views of the Mediterranean but also of a range of ancient buildings falling into ruin. This one is almost just a pile of rocks now but you cant help but wonder at life in those times...........what a view.
Address: The older road on Mount Orlando
This question has come up a number of times, i.e. people have mailed me and asked for a street map.
This morning I thought well, I know that I have one in amongst all of my information about Gaeta but it was a matter of locating it.
Anyway...........here it is. Now you will be able to locate all of the great historic sites too.
Bell Tower of S Clemente, Rome
St. Clemente in Rome, is a most unusual church of many layers. I have asked questions and read various articles and know from this that there have been a number of churches on this same site and that access is available to some of those previous levels of church.
When I walked in I was overcome with some special feeling and just sat in the front pew and listened to the choir singing and soaked up the atmosphere. Very strange for me.
Address: Behind the Colosseum in Rome
Directions: From Rome station head toward the Colosseum and more or less behind it in line with Oriani Park.
