Peschici: Whitewashed Homes and Cobblestone Roads

Following a fun morning exploring the back streets of Vico del Gargano and lunch at the Arianna Club where we were staying, my fellow bloggers and I were introduced to Peschici.

Cobblestone streets of Peschici, Italy
White walls invite graffiti, yet even spray paint seems to have its place here.

Peschici is a whitewashed seaside village of 4,400 residents at the northernmost point of the Gargano promontory in southern Italy.

As was the case in Vico, I felt an overwhelming urge to scurry off and lose myself in the narrow cobblestone streets of the historic center.

This time, I also made sure to stop for gelato and pick up a few little souvenirs in one of the many gift shops.
