GAETA

Important in Roman times, then a Longobard Duchy with picturesque medieval buildings, commanded by an imposing Longobard Castle, which passed to the Swabians and then to the Angevins; and the Cathedral of the 12° century, with a wealth of 13th century carving and a Norman campanile.

It would be a good idea to spend the afternoon inland; going back along the road to Forone to the point where there is a Roman ruin traditionally believed to be the Tomb of Cicero, killed near here in 43 BC, turn left and go 9 km. (6 m1/.) to ITRI, a beautiful medie-val town with a great Castle; another important Castle can be seen at FONDI an ancient city with fine palaces (14 km. - 8 1/2 mi. from Itri) - see the Renaissance courtyard of the Palazzo del Principe - and church of San Pietro (fine Romanesque pulpit, Renaissance tomb, altarpiece by Antoniazzo Romano). Skirting the Monti Ausoni, we arrive after 17 km. (10 1 1/2 mi.) at TERRACINA , an important resort with ancient monuments, a Cathedral rich in mosaics and sculpture: on the hill overlooking the town, note the remains of a Roman Temple of Jove.

The fourteenth day of our route follows the enchanting coast-road to Monte Circeo, a fantastic place in which, classical legend tells us, was found the cave where Circe bewitched Ulysses' men. Continuing between the sea and Lake Sabaudia, take the right-hand turning to go inland, to the town of SABAUDIA, a modern town built on what were the Pontine Marches, drained 1930-36; a run of 21 km. (13 1/2 mi.) takes us to the ABBEY OF FOSSANOVA.
