Full description
Discover why the village of Vieste is such a popular destination for travellers and locals alike. The guided tour will start from the historic center and course the typical alleys dotted with classic white houses that overlook the sea. Visit the cathedral built in the eleventh century and dedicated to St. Maria Assunta in one of the highest part of town. See the exteriors of the Swabian castle that is currently used by the Italian Navy. 

Be enthralled by the sights of the surrounding mountains, the incredible sandy beaches and sea caves. Admire the Pizzomunno rock, a 25 meter high symbol of the town closely linked to a local legend of love. Hear of the beautiful poem-song about the love story of the young fisherman Pizzomunno transformed into stone by the jealous sirens of a girl he loved, the beautiful Cristalda.
