Turner’s route to Naples took him through Formia, a small port on the Tyrrhenian coast which during the nineteenth century was known as Mola di Gaeta. The lower sketch on this page depicts the view along the seafront at Formia, towards the distant round tower, the Torre di Mola. As the artist’s inscription indicates, the upper sketch meanwhile represents a wider view of the Gulf of Gaeta, looking east with the Arunci mountains in the distance.
