When in Puglia Peschici is a town you shouldn't miss out on. Ok, Puglia has so many wonderful spots. But this is one of the very top. It's a beautiful white-washed old town, sitting on top of a cliff, just by the ocean. The Historic Center is pretty compact, it's an easy stroll. Some streets are cobbled, so be aware of that in case you have a wheelchair or a stroller. Of course you can't drive into the Historic Center, so you drop your car in the new part of town. There are several blue zones with (limited) free parking. But these fill up fast. There are two bigger parking lots (prepaid meter) on Via Monte Santo, south of the Center, but still in walking distance. The Center starts at the Torre Del Ponte, on a smaller square. The Via Roma is the main drag leading through the Centro Storico. Lined with countless restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, arts & craft shops and more. Via Colombo has some of these too, but less in numbers. Be sure to check on some side streets as well (like the Via Forno). The Piazza de Popolo is a good place to sit down and have a drink or a meal. And watch the world go by. Try "La Taverna". Good food for great prices. The Castello Medioevale sits a the northern end of town, on top of the cliff. That's as far as you go. From here you could go down to the small harbour and the beach. The town is just a sight by itself. It's nice to wander around this small center. Really feels like Greece at times. The style, the colours. It's such a bright, happy and lively place to be.…

We stayed close by at Masseria La Chiusa Delle More and brought a visit to this village because it is on walking distance (20 minutes). Nice sightseeing and to have a drink in the centre.

If centro storico means winding tourist trap, then this it. By all means buy a souvenir and have a drink or a meal here, but tell it like it is.

Peschici was strongly recommended by our guidebook and our B&B host as one of the prettiest villages along the Northern Gargano coast, so our expectations were pretty high. We even cut our visit to Vico Del Gargano short to have enough time. All these elements meant that when we arrived at the small and grubby historical centre of Peschici, we were disappointed. It's one of those places that looks better from far away and going in and visiting isn't really worth it. …

Nice little town with historical buildings. Prices for coffee are higher then normal. Lots of stairs.
