Taxis and rental cars are both available for visitors to Gaeta.  However, both of these transportation options have certain advantages as well as disadvantages. 

            Taxis are a good way of getting around the immediate city, but if planning on traveling much further, consider another option (see the Trip Advisor: Getting Around page) as the fares can get rather high.  Fares are based on meters, which are government regulated and standard for all companies.  Generally, taxis will be waiting outside of major public areas such as train/bus stations and large hotels.  If outside of these areas, the best way to get a taxi is to call one of the agencies ahead of time to arrange for a pick-up.  For an incomplete list of companies located in or around the city, check out this Taxi Company List.  Most hotels, restaurants, and bars will be happy to make this call for their customers. 

            A personal vehicle is the most convenient form of transportation available in Gaeta, as it allows the greatest freedom and flexibility in travel.   However, first time visitors to the country should check out this Driving in Italy page before deciding to get behind the wheel of a car.   Many visitors choose to fly into the Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport, which is located in Rome, visiting one of the many Car Rental Agencies located around the airport, and driving to Gaeta. Most travelers feel more comfortable making car rental reservations before they leave home so they are assured of having the car they want waiting for them when they arrive.  ItalyCarRentals has locations throughout Italy and reservations are made online.
