Spend a day wandering through the winding and highest towns of the Gargano promontory: Monte Sant'Angelo. This city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011, with San Giovanni Rotondo lying in the faithful heart of the Gargano.
What to Expect
Take a tour to one of the most emblematic cities of the Gargano, Monte Sant'Angelo, and San Giovanni Rotondo, the first listed since 2011 in the UNESCO's World Heritage List and the second one listed as a miraculous place blessed by San Pio da Pietralcina.

Narrow streets, white buildings, olive trees, and little squares adorn the outfit of the two cities, giving it's private mansions a special warm glow. Spend a day wandering through this ancient town and allow your private guide to point out sites of religious and historical importance.

Discover the city of San Giovanni Rotondo and Padre Pio, who was "blessed" with the stigmata: unless you want to join the eight million pilgrims who flood into town every year, there is only one reason to stop: to visit the innovative and controversial Nuova Chiesa di San Pio da Pietralcina. It stands behind the complex of the Santuario di Santa Maria delle Grazie, and the Pilgrim Reception Office designed by Renzo Piano. It's the second largest church in Italy. Behind the polychrome glass windows, the interior boats a modern lighting system and an enormous cross with elaborate spiral motifs.

Second step will be Monte Sant'Angelo and it's Unesco site, the Santuario di San Michele (so called because in 490 the arcangel Michael appeared in a vision here) is situated in the hightest town of the promontory of the Gargano. It can only be reached by a long, winding road, but it's worth the trouble. At 800 meters above the sea level, Monte Sant'Angelo offers a splendid view over the Gulf of Manfredonia and the narrow streets of Medieval Rione Junno.
