Day 1 – Itinerary 1
Archaeological/naturalistic itinerary in the Gargano

Point of departure:
Peschici (FG) - Town:Bivio Bosco Reseghetta
Point of arrival: Peschici (FG) - Town: Sfinalicchio
This 5.7 km itinerary winds along the border between Vieste and Peschici: starting in the woods of the Reseghetta and, along the trail, you can find a fabulous Mediterranean maquis, beautiful natural landscapes, and archaeological prehistoric and protohistoric evidence of this territory.
Description of the route:
From the Reseghetta take a little path to the right and, after a few steps you will find a fork in the path near a house. Continue straight on as indicated by the arrow. Following along the crest of the hill, you will arrive in the zone of the Ripari Sottoroccia - or Under-rock Shelters - dating back to the end of the Upper Palaeolithic. Following the path to the sea, after about 500 m, you are near the end of the path and find another archaeological site: a nucleus of four Daune Tombs (not easily accessible) dug into the rock.
Average duration: about 3 hours - Length of trail: km 5.7 - Level of difficulty: Low


Day 2 – Itinerary 2
Naturalistic/religious itinerary in the Gargano

Point of departure:
Mattinata (FG) - Town: Sagro
Point of arrival: Monte Sant’Angelo (FG)
This trail offers interesting landscapes and natural attractions as well as religious ones. An ancient sheep treck winds through the woods of Vieste that has been used for centuries by pilgrims and shepherds to reach Monte Sant’Angelo in honour of Saint Michael (29 September) and to reach the livestock fairs that were held periodically in Monte Sant’Angelo, San Marco in Lamis, and San Giovanni Rotondo.
Description of the route:
The itinerary begins in Sagro, near the picnic area of Tacca del Lupo. This is where a little road begins, 3 km long, leading to Iacotenente. The trail leads to a spacious and sunny valley known as Piano di San Martino; continuing towards the right, along a red-earth dirt road, you will reach the Piscina della Signora - or the "Lady"s Pool". A trail climbs above the city of Monte Sant’Angelo: all you have to do is cross the last pasture and reach, after such fatigue, the silent grotto of the Saint, where the itinerary ends.
Average duration: about 9 hours - Length of trail: km 24 - Level of difficulty: High


Day 3 – Itinerary 3
Naturalistic itinerary in the Gargano – The Foresta Umbra

Point of departure: Vico del Gargano (FG) - Town: Villaggio Umbra
Point of arrival: Vico del Gargano (FG) - Town: Caritate
Description of the route:
Leaving from the Caserma di Caritate (Caritate Barracks), follow the paved road for about 1 km until you arrive at an equipped picnic area; near the limits of the picnic area you find a forest protection table indicating the trail for Baracconi (first sign). The trail climbs up the hill around more than 25 sharp curves and in one of these you will find the second sign. Continue until you find indications for the Grava di Pozzo Lombardo and further ahead that for Malanotte. After about three hours of walking, you will reach Baracconi, near the Villaggio Umbra.
Average duration: about 11 hours - Length of trail: km 26 - Level of difficulty: High
Notes: “Grava” is a term used in Southern Italy to indicate a deep gorge.
