Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Foggia, Italy.
The province of Foggia and the city that shares its name are located in the north of the Puglia region, nestled in the “heel” of the Boot of Italy. Stretching from the Adriatic Sea and the stunning Tremiti islands inland to the Dauni Mountains, Foggia has plenty to offer visitors, whether you are looking to simply relax and take advantage of the warm temperatures this far south, or if you prefer a more active vacation, walking in the hills and exploring picturesque and historic towns and villages.
While there are many pleasant and popular beaches on Foggia's mainland, most tourists head straight for the Tremiti islands, off the coast of the Gargano peninsula. Mostly rocky and covered with unspoilt greenery, the islands are perfect for those who enjoy exploring on foot, while swimmers and especially divers can explore underwater features such as caves, rock formations and unusual marine life. There are several islands to choose from, each of which can be reached via a short boat journey from the mainland. Some beaches are more difficult to reach than others, but if you are fit and not saddled with lots of beach gear, there is every chance you could have your own private stretch of sand for the day. You can enjoy a fantastic view of the islands from the medieval coastal town of Manfredonia, home to an interesting local museum, a 13th century cathedral and a fortress, which seems to be balanced on the very cliff edge.
Head inland from Manfredonia along the route of the Gargano River and you will come to the Archaeological Park of Siponto, an area rich in prehistoric and ancient sites, where many of the artefacts in the town's museum were found. Many of these sites are open to the public and you can often clamber in and around buildings and structures that are thousands of years old. This area is also known for its many religious buildings and sanctuaries, many of which line the old pilgrimage route known as the Via Sacra dei Longobardi. Follow this road and you will come to the impressive Dauni mountains, including the stunning Monte Sant'Angelo, which is worth climbing for the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Manfredonia from the top. There are also several caves in this area, including one which was transformed into a place of worship in medieval times. Further inland is the town of Lucera, an ancient village that was settled and expanded by the Romans. Many ruins can be seen in the town, including the entrance to the amphitheatre and the town's fortress which was built on the site of the original Roman acropolis.
