Vieste and surroundings

In addition to its 140 km of coastline, perfect for sea enthusiasts and water sports buffs, the Spur of Italy hides real gems to be discovered, no matter if you come for nature, history or Italian culture.
Vieste takes its name from Vesta, the goddess of the hearth. It was a Greek colony and afterwards a Roman municipality. Historians identify it with the ancient Apeneste. Vieste has known several dominations: Byzantine, Lombard and Norman. In 1239 the city suffered a violent plundering by Venetians during which the cathedral was destroyed.It was afterwards rebuilt by Frederick II of Svevia, along with much of the city and the important Castello Svevo, which still dominates the medieval area. In 1554 the pirate Dragut Rais made the most terrible amongst the numerous Saracens assaults: about 5,000 Viestani were beheaded near the cathedral on a rock (which still exists) that is since called “chianca amara”, i.e. bitter stone. The population of Vieste celebrates the Virgin Mary the 9th of May, with a procession of worshippers to the church of Santa Maria di Merino, seven kilometers away from Vieste.
During your holiday in Vieste you will have the opportunity to organize excursions of all kinds. The reception staff is at guests’ disposal to provide information on tours and activities. From our beach there are daily boats for a tour of the sea caves. You will have the ability to purchase tickets for the Tremiti Islands and other excursions.
Every day, right from our bay, there are excursions to the sea caves. Skirt around the South coast to Mattinata discovering lush nature that characterises the coast and the crystal waters of our sea. Countless recesses enchant adults and childres, the same that fishermen had fun to baptise with curious names: Screwed cave, the Smuggler cave, the Two Eyes, Dream cave, Emerald cave and many more.
The tour at the Foresta Umbra “Shady forest”, in the heart of the National Park of Gargano, is a must-see for nature lovers. In the ancient forest, which preserves almost entirely its vegetative mantle, you can choose from 14 routes, all easily walkable. Inside the park you can visit the Nature Museum with a section dedicated to the local flora, an archaeological section and a fauna section detailing more than 200 species, including the local deers.
With daily departures from Vieste Marina, you can reach the Tremiti Islands and enjoy a corner of the Adriatic that is unparalleled. After a trip to the sea caves and a visit to the Island of San Domino, where you can admire the Elephant rock and “i pagliai” (pyramid-shaped monoliths) the tour continues on the Island of St. Nicholas, considered an open air museum because of the many traces of an ancient and glorious past.
