Full description
Just 10 km from the Umbra forest, in the heart of the Gargano, stands Vico del Gargano, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. This guided tour will allow you to discover the two districts of Civita and Casale as well as the main places of interest, such as the church Matrice with its bell tower and altar dedicated to St. Valentine, the patron saint of the town.

Within walking distance you will visit the churches of St. Joseph, St. Mark, and St. Mary of the Angels, as well as the convent of the Capuchins and St. Peter. The historic center still partially retains its walls which have become, in part, houses. A few steps away, you will reach a castle with a quadrangular form, probably of Norman origins. The tour continues with an external visit to Palazzo della Bella, designed according to the model of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

The tour ends with a visit to the Museo Trappeto Maratea, an ancient olive oil mill from the 14th Century, carved into the rock. Inside you will visit two areas: in one there are the wooden presses for the pressing of the olives, the mill, and other useful tools for the production of oil and for agricultural work. Tn the other, you can see a tank for oil, a warehouse, and a barn.
