Between religous architecture and enogastronomy
Foggia, administrative center in northern Apulia, is located in the Tavoliere delle Puglie ("Table of the Apulias"), 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 Gargano, Margherita di Savoia and the Tremiti islands. The typical mediterranean climate guarantees warm summers and mild winters. During the summer, Foggia is the hottest city in Italy. After the remediations of the Tavoliere, this city became more and more important and experienced economic, demographic and urban developments: 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 typical apulian dishes and visiting the numerous important monuments that are now the symbols of Foggia: the cathedral of Santa Maria Icona Vetere, the chapel of Icona Vetere, the church of Calvario, the Duomo and the Archeological park Passo di Corvo. In the historical centre there is the Fontana del Sele that embellishes Piazza Cavour square, while in Via Arpi there are trattorias and typical restaurants that serve the best products coming from local sources like "burrata", "taralli" and "caciocavallo".
