The spur of the boot consists of a mountain range that extends 65 km into the Adriatic Sea and reaches a height of 1,000 meters. The landscape of this scenic peninsula is characterized by picturesque bays, cliffs, beaches and clear blue waters. Ancient woods dot the interior. The most impressive of these, the Foresta di Umbra (“Shadow Forest”), contains a trail for a three-hour hike. Although the coastal region has fallen victim to mass tourism in recent years, there are still many charming sites away from the crowds. Boats leave from Rodi Garganico to the Tremiti Islands, which have seen little tourism development.
