Excellent view over the sea, you shouldn't miss it! Lots of stairs, not good for small kids and elderly. Go to the cave of the Turk.

Absolutely amazing views, must see if you’re in the area. Only downside was not being able to see the full grotto as a large part of the stairs were blocked off.

Recommend anyone travelling near to Gaeta to visit this amazing place. Be prepared for a bit of walking but it’s definitely worth it. The cafe near to the entrance also has a brilliant view of Gaeta which is worth a stop!

I was disappointed, as we were'nt able to go down to the waters edge in the cave. I have been a few times before as a youngster and wanted to take my wife down.

Absolutely stunning and quick as well. Parked near the restaurant, walked down to the grotto, through the monestary and walked right to the view.

Is a fascinating place, you can enjoy fresh air with an amazing view of the beach on one side and the mountain on the other. Feel the positive vibes, just let yourself go......
