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!

It might be possible but might be illegal. I have no idea really but there are cliffs all along the Amalfi coast. You may want to check out an extreme sports guide book.
