Hot dry wooded peninsula on the Adriatic coast half way down the eastern side of Italy. Pia Padr has his shrine here for gullible Roman Catholics.

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

From out of 100 visits to Italy the Gargano was an experience a beautiful part of Italy which truly not many foreigners (also Italians) knows, this is a piece of a beauty that must be seen to understand Italy in it's best, the view the small villages and city's like time stopped from going one of our best travel to...

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.
