Discover the Gargano

OK so there’s the incredible sea; but what about the rest of the Gargano area?

Spending aweek’s holiday in the Gargano and not moving from the beach is like buying a Ferrari and then never going higher than second gear. In fact, this land has a number of soulsthat every year, attract people from various parts of Italy and the world eager to discover its magic.

And the magic is soon explained: the Garganomanages to combine a variety of charming elements, such as the extraordinary beauty of its sea(which becomes a mystery to be explored when it creeps into its thousand sea caves!); the luxuriant green of its hinterland, where the Umbra Forest grows solemnly, hiding incredible potholes; or the spiritual appeal of its great centres of worship: Monte Sant’Angelo and San Giovanni Rotondo, above all.

Ok, enough, I seem like a high school geography teacher! You will have to see for yourself!

#1

Three UNESCO World Heritage Sites

If you love the UNESCO-protected beauties of Italy, then you can visit three of them not far from here: the Sanctuary of San Michele (UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011), the Umbra Forest (since 2017) andCastel Fiorentino,in the city of Torremaggiore (since 2017).

The Sea Caves

Treat yourself to an incredibly wondrous day wandering the Gargano coasteastwards: from Peschici to Vieste, above all, but also continuing further, towards Mattinata, you will encounter a myriad of sea caves. The Gargano karst has created natural settings that fearlessly challenge the most inspired artists!

Jeep Safari in the Umbra Forest

If you are looking for something more than the infinite blues of the sea, here you can depart for the Umbra Forest(name that derives from Ombra – Shadow), the largest green lung of the territory, where numerous species of protected animals live, and you can encounter the largest variety of wild orchids in Europe.

Alternatively, as an excursion we recommend a tour of Lake Varano.

In search of the Other, the Beyond and oneself

For a magical moment of intimate reflection, retracing ancient paths, you can go to the aforementioned sanctuary of San Michele, in Monte Sant’Angelo, near the cave where the Saint is said to have appeared, or to San Giovanni Rotondo, whose name is inextricably linked to the beloved figure of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina (San Pio).
