The Gargano is a peninsula partly mountainous and partly covered by a forest, Foresta Umbra with vegetation typical of Central Europe, the only lasting part in Italy of the ancient Black Forest.

The coast of Gargano is rich in beaches and touristic facilities. In the north are two major salt lakes Lesina and Varano.
