Vico del Gargano
Nicknamed the "village of love", Vico del Gargano is often touted as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Yet, despite this affectionate moniker, it still flies relatively under the radar. Its warren of narrow alleys is framed by cobbled houses sporting swoon-worthy balconies while, outside the historic old town, you'll find rich hot springs and miles of citrus groves. Forget Amalfi limoncello, it's here that you'll find palm-sized, canary-yellow lemons that are sweet enough to bite into. Lovestruck couples (or those seeking their own Eat, Pray, Love moment) will want to stop by the "vicolo del bacio", a passageway so narrow that starstruck lovers would detour via the alley so that they were forced to touch as they squeezed past each other. Romeo and Juliet would have been thrilled.
