Getting there & around
Vieste’s port is to the north, about a five-minute walk from the tourist office. In summer several companies, including Tirrenia di Navigazione (0884 70 85 01) head to the Isole Tremiti from here. Tickets can be bought portside, and there are several boats daily from June to September (€15.80, 1½ hours).
Many companies also offer tours of the caves which pock the Gargano coast – a three-hour tour costs around €10.
SITA (0881 77 31 17; www.sitabus.it in Italian) buses run between Vieste and Foggia (€4.90, 2¾ hours, four daily) via Manfredonia, and between Vieste and Monte Sant’Angelo (€4), while Ferrovie del Gargano (0881 58 72 11; www.ferroviedelgargano.com in Italian) services go to Peschici (€1.80, 35 minutes, 11 daily) and other towns on the promontory. Buses terminate at Piazzale Manzoni in Vieste and timetables are posted outside Ragno Viaggi (0884 70 15 28). Services are scarce at weekends.
Agenzia SOLalso sells bus and boat tickets.
