Foggia, Italia


Le Colonne Bed & Breakfast on Via Luigi Zuppetta is one of Foggia, Italy’s treasures. Located in the heart of Foggia, this bed and breakfast boasts of southern Italian character, charm, and feel.  The rooms offer a balcony, a private bathroom, a very comfortable bed, a TV,  a desk, and strong WiFi that’s available all day and all night.

Breakfast – Italian style!

The friendly owner, Rino, prepares breakfast consisting of cornetto (croissant), pastries, coffee, and orange juice for all the guests and stays for a chat or two or even three! Rino will make you feel like family.  He also offers generous tips about the ins and outs of the city.

Foggia Central Bus Station

Only a 15-minute walk to and from the Foggia Central Bus Station, Le Colonne is very accessible to visitors coming to Foggia.  It is also only a 10-minute walk to the commercial center with well-lit streets lined with shops, cafés, and restaurants.  At night, the city center displays a vibrant and thriving nightlife for both the old and the young.

Another spectacular event to watch out for is the street market in front of Le Colonne. Wake up to the sound of market vendors shouting and singing about their fresh offerings – from fruits and vegetables, fish, cheese, meat and many other delectable items.  This is an experience you should not miss!

Farm-fresh vegetables
Seafood (frutti di mare) so fresh they are still alive!

If you ever find yourself in Foggia, I strongly recommend staying at Le Colonne and experience that famed and endearing southern Italian hospitality first-hand.
