Experience the Gargano! What to do and see around Forte Hotel 2.

The splendid town of Vieste was born from an ancient fishing village located in the heart of the Gargano Promontory. This wonderful seaside town is located north of Apulia and is bathed by the beautiful waters of the Adriatic Sea. The Gargano boasts some of the world’s most beautiful cliffs, enchanting beaches as well as an intact and luxuriant nature.

The Gargano can be discovered through many itineraries and activities ranging from water sports, walks in the woods and visits to villages rich in history.
The Vieste coast offers multiple beaches of all kinds, from romantic coves to wide sandy beaches with shallow waters, such as the beautiful Scialara Beach, much appreciated by families with babies and anyone who wants a relaxing day at the beach. Here you can admire the Pizzomunno, a majestic monolith of white rock that overlooks the Scialara Beach standing as "guardian of the city", becoming its symbol.

Also not to be missed are the splendid sea caves that hide mysterious stories and legends, and which enchant their visitors with their play of lights and colors.
Nature lovers cannot miss an excursion to the Umbrian Forest, a very ancient beech forest among Italy’s largest and boasting great biodiversity. In this enchanted forest are trees up to 40 meters high and very rare plant and animal species such as wild orchids, the eagle owl, the wild cat and many more.

Also the historic center of Vieste, known as "Vieste Vecchia" offers splendid views like the ancient Cathedral in the Apulian Romanesque style, and the Castello Svevo, the ancient residence of Federico II, from which you can enjoy an impressive view of the sea and the surrounding territory.

Nearby we recommend a visit to the white seaside town of Peschici, Rodi Garganica and the unmissable Tremiti Islands, a true paradise on earth where nature runs the show. Also from Vieste you can easily reach San Giovanni Rotondo with the Shrine of Padre Pio, an important religious pilgrimage destination.
