However, the Gargano Peninsula holds many more secrets which only a closer look can unveil. If you are up for this virtual trip, this presentation will guide and surprise you. Do you know the biological phenomenon of “Island Gigantism”? It happens when animal species isolated on an island increase dramatically in comparison to their relatives on the mainland. You will find the fossils of this species in the Gargano peninsula, and Angela, the guide of this virtual tour, will help you to discover them! Do you want to know what an ancient Mediterranean forest looks like? In Gargano, you will step into the only remaining ancient forest, the Umbra Forest, and you will discover its magical and timeless beauty. Filitalia will also guide you through the charming small cities of Gargano, their breathtaking views, their special light, and their delicious cuisine.
