We spent one night here which was long enough to be able to drive off to the Foresta Umbra for a nice walk through the woods and then to explore the town in the evening and morning before departing. Probably not worth a special trip...More

Vico is set in the hills of the Gargano Peninsula. Access is by road - no local trains. The old town is fascinating with small and tight alleyways winding their way between the cobbled streets.

When you think of ancient italy Vico comes to mind and it is a reality. Visit the old churches and walk in the streets of the old city. Have lunch at the local restaurants.

Vico del Gargano is amazing as it's an old village built into a rock. It still hasn't been touched by globalization.

Vico del Gargano is a good base to explore the Gargano for a few days. This town has all you need and some excellent bars and restaurants to eat at.

We loved the way that the castle has been built upon and added to over the centuries, with people still living in or around it.
