Booking a car rental in Foggia, Italy is an excellent way to explore both southern Italy and the scenic Apulia region of central Italy as part of your road trip in Italy. Foggia is the cultural and business capital of the Tavoliere plain, also referred to as the granary of Italy. Foggia has a largely uneventful history prior to the 19th century, when the Foggia central railway station was built and several public institutions created in the city. During World War II, more than 20,000 civilians died in Foggia as a result of massive Allied air raids, which reduced the city to almost complete rubble. What has emerged in the wake of this devastation is beautiful and if you're planning a trip to Foggia Auto Europe's free travel guide is a great place to start your research.
Although much of historical Foggia was destroyed during World War II, several historic buildings survived or have been rebuilt, such as the cathedral of Santa Maria de Fovea, and the Palazzo Dogana, a palace which functioned as the customs office for sheep being processed in the city during the 19th century. Foggia is famous for both its tomatoes and watermelons; one simply must try watermelon sorbet which is very popular among locals on a hot summer day.
