Experience Isole Tremiti

The islands of Isole Tremiti are an archipelago in the Adriatic Sea, north of the Gargano Peninsula. The name of the islands relates to their seismic hazard, with a history of earthquakes in the area: tremiti means “tremors”.


Historically, the islands have been inhabited for thousands of years. The first prehistoric finds on the islands date back to the Bronze Age and affirm the presence of the Greek people on the island.

A day in Isole Tremiti…

Can be spent hiking, exploring and swimming. The big island of San Domino is covered with pine, great shaded trails and countless cliffs. Make sure you cross over with a water taxi to visit the island of St. Nicolas.  There you will be able to hike all the way to the castle and fortress that can be reached through short and wide staircases.  The castle was built around the fifteenth century.  You will also find the Abbey of Santa Maria, a Mare fortified complex. The view from here is simply stunning!

Whether you are a snorkeler or a diver, the beach on San Domino is a beautiful place to spend a day.  The sea water is picture perfect and promises great sea life viewing.
