Foggia is located in the centre of a predominantly agricultural area, the Tavoliere, also known as “Italy’s breadbasket”.
It is an important area of ancient agricultural and merchant traditions, lying at the centre of the second largest plain in Italy. The city has a distinctive old town centre, dominated by the Duomo and the Arch of Federico II. Leaving the ancient hamlet, modern Foggia is characterized by wide tree-lined avenues and airy squares, rich in monuments and buildings of great historical and architectural value. The underground walkways are a must-see. Known as hypogea, they link most of the old town centre and were used in medieval times.
All around the capital of the province we find many villages scattered around the Tavoliere and along the Appennino Dauno, fascinating hamlets that have remained for years on the margins of the great tourist flows, giving them the aura of mysterious and undiscovered destinations that attract the most curious and attentive travellers.
