I took the opportunity to learn a bit about Gaeta. It is the location of the earliest known written reference to pizza. That alone should endear the town to all of us. They have a mountain named Orlando, the same name as the city I live in. They also have a special olive there. I need to find some of these olives to try.
It turns out, Gaeta is also a beautiful town and, if this class is any indication, it is full of smart, kind people.
