This was our first visit to Puglia. We based ourselves in Vieste - at the tip of the Gargano Peninsula. From here the major attractions of the area can be reached within 2hrs car drive. We visited in late October (fall) and found the majority of restaurants and attractions along the coastline closed for the season. This is no bad... More

In this forest the temperature is about 5 degrees below the beach temperature. Very nice roads to get there and not so crowded.

What's most striking about the Gargano is how 'different' it feels to other parts of Italy. It must be partly to do with the geology, which is like on the far side of the Adriatic. And then, after San Giovanni and Manfredonia, there are no big towns, most roads are narrow and slow, and it really is like a world... More

If you wish a relaxed exploration of the Gargano, please start in September. Of course you will have some Campers driven from site to site, but at least you will find some place to put your car before enjoying the view.

Very curvy roads! High walls, high speed, up & down and Italian drivers are the danger in these roads. BUT. If you take your time and reach - i.e. Vieste - your travel is well earned. Not necessarily swimmable on all beaches as they are very rocky but the view and restaurants are nice. Worth the visit.

The Gargano is beautiful. The drive up is breathtaking. You see the sea below and the hills beside you, the little villages and the forest Umbra. We really enjoyed the short easy walk from falascone to the Laghetto in Forest Umbra. Very quiet and green and tons of fish (and small turtles) to see in the lake. We enjoyed it... More

Along the South-Eastern coast of Italy,a little more than a quarter of the way up the Italian boot,a spur of land juts into the Adriatic Sea,looking out across the clear blue-green waters that separate western Europe from the Byzantine east. It is a chalky limestone massif known as the Promontorio del Gargano,or Gargano peninsula,and it offers many of the finest... More
