Vieste , well-known as the main tourist landing place of eastern Gargano, can be considered one of the most fascinating sea resorts in Italy.
Now famous for its comfortable accommodations, for the lively nightlife and for the excellent local cuisine, Vieste is still a place to explore, a treasure to discover..
Experiencing the same contrasts that characterize the whole Gargano, Vieste opposes a fierce and imposing rock face with the old town on it, to beautiful sandy beaches extending along the coast.
Further south, towards Mattinata, or north towards the area of Peschici, the coast offers a breathtaking view: one can actually find sandy beaches juxtaposed to small and often inaccessible bays.
On the southern coast of Vieste you can see the beautiful Grotte Marine di Vieste ( sea caves of Vieste ); these are a must for all tourists and an impressive natural heritage.
The two symbols – monuments – of Vieste are: the totemic Pizzomunno, awesome stone linked to an ancient and romantic legend, and the Lighthouse of Vieste, built in the year 1867 on the rock of Sant’Eufemia.
A visit to La Salata, WWF Oasis that was once a Paleo-Christian necropolis, is really a dive into the past. Here, there are worth seeing animal species.
As you see, there are really many reasons for a tourist to spend a vacation in Vieste: clear sea, rocky beaches and golden sand beaches, small relaxing bays, history, ancient traditions handed down from many generations, excellent and genuine cuisine flavors, entertainment for both young people and families.
