Foggia Travel 2009
I am travelling with my family to foggia & gargano late 2009. We are travelling from Rome by train and using Foggia as a base to travel to other areas. If anybody could help with the following questions, it would really be appreciated -
1) are there many buses that link Foggia to towns on the gargano peninsula? (is there a website)
2) how are the roads around Foggia and Gargano?
3) how safe is Foggia and is there any street markets?
4) what is the best way to get from Foggia to Reggio Calabria? (what are the best websites to check)
Thanks for your help.
Re: Foggia Travel 2009
You will find the bus companies for Foggia listed here:
Clicking on their names will bring up individual websites with routes/timetables etc. All are in Italian but easy enough to work out. Exploring them will give you an idea of which towns and villages you can visit.
If there is a station where you want to visit it is very cheap to travel by regional train (and more comfortable than bus).
will give you train times and fares in English.
To get to Reggio di Calabria I think you can only take the train, unless you hire a car, although I may be wrong. Use the link above to find fares/times. It is a lengthy journey of 9+ hours, with several changes involved. One-way fare from 40 euro.

Travel Tips for Foggia
The white Vieste 'whose name us as light and kind as the hesitation of a first half-closed kiss ', exerts a great charm on the soul and feelings, of those people who visit it and stay there, and this whether they be poets or simple tourists. Vieste rises on the extreme eastern peak of Gargano between two sickle-shaped beaches. The view of small town from the sea seems especially fit for the nature which surround it: the white and narrow houses lean one upon the other, in rows here and there broken by stair-alleys, often surmounted by flowery arches, and by very small squares. The town and the promontory on which it stands are dominated by the Castle, built by Frederic II and fortified by Charles of Anjou. Most of the town extends between the Castle and the roadstead limited by the cape of San Felice, which stretches towards the reef on which rises the Tower of the Lanterna, and by the cape of San Francesco where the small church dedicated to the Saint is situated. The Cathedral built on a roman temple overlooks the white houses. Beyond the cape of San Felice the large beach of San Lorenzo stretches for seven kilometers to north-east of Vieste. To the south, where the promontory fails perpendicularly to the sea with a high rocky wall, the soft and white beach called 'of the Castle ' extends on a slight slope to the sea.
