Between religous architecture and gastronomy
Foggia, administrative centre in the northern Puglia, is located in the Tavoliere delle Puglie, the widest plain in Italy after the Po valley. This province includes 64 municipalities, many farming/wine-making areas like Cerignola and San Severo and numerous tourist localities like the Gargano, Margherita di Savoia and the Tremiti islands. The typical mediterranean climate guarantees warm summers and mild winters. During the summer, Foggia is the hottes city in Italy. After the remediations of the Tavoliere, this city became more and more important and developed from many points of view: today, it has more than 150.000 inhabitants and is an important cultural and industrial centre.
Foggia is the perfect combination of relax, architectural masterpieces and excellent gastronomy. It is a peaceful city where tourists can relax while tasting the typical apulian dishes and visiting the numerous important structures that are now the symbols of Foggia: the cathedral of Santa Maria Icona Vetere, the chapel of the Icona Vetere, the church of the Calvario, the Duomo and the Archeological park Passo di Corvo. In the historical centre there is the Fontana del Sele that embellishes Piazza Cavour, while in Via Arpi there are trattorias and typical restaurants that serve the best products coming from local sources like the "burrata", "taralli" and "caciocavallo".
Foggia is a great starting point to explore the nearby maritime localities: the Gargano, one of the most beautiful coastlines in Italy; the beach of Levante; Lago Varano; Rodi Garganico; Peschici; Vieste, made up of three bays: San Lorenzo, Marina Piccola and Pizzomauro.
