Gaiola is a protected marine area offering visitors the unique opportunity to view a submerged city (the geologic shifting known as 'bradyseism' that creates such phenomenon is prevalent in this area of Italy). The tour starts at the visitor centre, where films and photos will give you helpful information on the natural and historical features of Gaiola. Then, you’ll hit the water for a firsthand encounter with the ancient city’s ruins and the maritime life that now colonises them. Follow your guide along the coastline and discover underwater sites only visible to those who take the plunge.|
