Looking across the Gulf of Gaeta from the hilltop town of Maranola di Formia, you can see the shimmering water that has drawn fishermen, traders and visitors to southern Lazio for centuries. The large hill is Monte Orlando, site of an ancient Roman mausoleum, a historic monastery and a regional park. To the left of Monte Orlando lies the historic city center.
