A celebration of flavours overlooking the Bay of Gaeta

Medieval Gaeta The quarter of Medieval Gaeta is steeped in history and rich in ancient monuments.  During the Middle Ages Gaeta was a fortified settlement, and flourishing port which carried out trade with countries in the eastern Mediterranean.  It was built on the rocky peninsular of Monte Orlando. Gaeta went on to evolve into an autonomous maritime Duchy ruled by Giovanni I of Gaeta and then the Docibile family for several generations. The young king of Naples, Ladislao di Durazzo took refuge at Gaeta and here in 1381 he  married his young bride Costanza Chiaramonte. Indeed many of the street names of the medieval quarter reflect Gaeta’s eventful history.

Day trip from Salerno: Paestum and its temples - private tour

Paestum is a truly enchanting and atmospheric place, and a 'must' on any classical tour of Italy. Just south of the Sorrento peninsula and Amalfi Coast, and a mile inland, this is a haunting archaeological site where three Greek temples stand in the middle of the countryside. Paestum is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once called Poseidonia, the city was founded in the VII century BC by Greeks colonists from Sybaris and it would has probably occupied by a human settlement when they got there. It turned the name in Paestum once and for all when it was taken by Rome and continued to prosper until the mouth of river Salso started to be buried by sand and the whole place turned into a swamp.
