These Stunning Sights in Vieste Will Give You Total Peace

 Buried in the Apulia region of Southeastern Italy, deep in the Foggia province is a small quiet township that goes by the name of Vieste. A former Catholic diocese and a determined Italian comune, Vieste lies in the marine paradise of Gargano, within the bounds of Gargano National Park. In medieval times, the port of this town was frequently visited by pirates. Now, most visitors come for the beautiful cathedrals, the gorgeous monoliths and monuments, and the pristine waters.

The marine landscape of Vieste has maintained its purity completely. It has been awarded the Blue Flags certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education, for meeting the stringent environmental management standards set. It is also a popular tourist destination as the town is peppered with gorgeous natural structures, eroded by water and wind into grottoes, caves and towering arches. Whether for boating, camping or simply sitting on the shore letting the water lick your feet, Vieste is a well-hidden treasure that is perfect for you!
