Gargano is a wide highland area which forms the Gargano Promontory. The highest point is Monte Calvo (1065m). Most of this area is actually part of the Gargano National Park which was founded in 1991. It is a beautiful and diverse territory, featuring medieval villages, seaside resorts, the Foresta Umbra, the only remaining part in Italy of the ancient forest which covered Central Europe.
There are two highways leading to Gargano: Autostrada A14 (exit Poggio Imperiale) and Autostrada A16 (exit Candela).
The closest airport is in Bari.
