the Gargano

Are you planning your holidays on the Gargano and wondering what to visit in Vieste and surroundings? The Gargano Peninsula is rich in beautiful places and often not known, we suggest you our favourite ones.


A real spectacle of nature, accessible only by sea. This stretch of coast is rich in these natural sceneries, with white beaches, coves and small real green oasis. Among the most beautiful caves we recommend you the Bell Cave, the Cave of the smugglers, Cave knocked down, Emerald Cave and the Cave of the Mermaids.


The village where San Pio da Pietrelcina lived for over 50 years, is every year the destination of pilgrimages from all over the world. Here there are his mortal remains and some churches dedicated to him, including Santa Maria delle Grazie, where Padre Pio preached, and the new church designed by Renzo Piano, completed in 2004.


Saints, emperors, popes and simple faithful have always come here to kneel at the altar of the Archangel Michael, built in the rock inside a cave, which hosts the shrine dedicated to him. A Unesco world heritage site and headquarters of the National Park of Gargano, Monte Sant'Angelo is the highest inhabited centre of the Gargano and enjoys a splendid panoramic position.


For those arriving for the first time on the Gargano, Tremiti Islands are certainly worth paying a visit. Blue waters and unspoiled landscapes, these islands have won the designation of the Pearl of the Adriatic. They are located about 10 miles from the Gargano coast and are a natural marine reserve, with sea-bottom and coastal area protected.


Foresta Umbra is a green lung for the new millennium, which extends for 10,000 hectares in the heart of the Gargano. Orchids, anemones, violas and cyclamen colour its undergrowth… roe deer, badgers, wild cats, woodpeckers and royal owls populate its territory. The forest is crossed by 14 trails, all walkable to enjoy of the beauties of this place still spellbound in complete freedom.
