The Gargano is a magical place and we hope to help you discover and experience one of the most unique regions of Italy.
This tiny peninsula at the top of Italy’s boot is part of Puglia (Apulia), a region as diverse in geography as it is in culture. It has everything one could hope to find when dreaming of la dolce vita, the ‘sweet life’. The heart of the region includes Italy’s largest national park and theUmbraForest which cascades down toward the limestone cliffs of theAdriatic Sea. Narrow bands of white, sandy beaches dot the coastline. Spectacular towns like Peschici, Vieste and Rodi di Gargano crown the cliffs, each a delightful jumble of white stone and medieval masonry
