Day 1

Vieste – Arrive at Bari Airport for a Scenic Transfer to Quiet Vieste

The much loved but often-overlooked city of Bari boasts grand boulevards, a fabulous opera, and an ambiance of sophistication and youthfulness alike that emanates from the popular university. The Basilica of San Nicola, in the historical center of the city, holds relics of St. Nicholas and Castello Svevo was erected in the 12th century over ruins of a Byzantine fortress. The port bustles with commercial activity and ferries shepherding tourists to Greece against the backdrop of the glistening Adriatic Sea. Your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival at Karol Wojtyla Airport ready to escort you to the charming Gargano promontory and the seaside town of Vieste.

The scenic drive will take you along the naturally diverse landscape as it juts out and into the Adriatic to contrast with the verdant trees of Umbra Forest and accentuated by the combination of sandy beaches and historical villages. The colorful tower homes of Vieste descend down the hillside over the eastern shores of the Gargano promontory with steep cobbled lanes that are filled with the aromas of fresh espresso and grilling squid topped with freshly squeezed lemon juice. The narrow alleyways lead to open vistas where you will marvel over the Pizzomunno cliffs. Locals swim in the harbor waters or venture into the scenic protected paths of the Parco Nazionale del Gargano for a day spent cycling or hiking along the craggy slopes.

The remainder of the day will be yours to immerse yourself in the comforts of the enchanting seaside destination. The medieval center exemplifies the warren of lanes with friendly cats shuffling between the homes. The blend of history and scenery welcomes you to Vieste with a breathtaking first impression.
