GARGANO CYCLING TOUR

Starting from San Giovanni Rotondo we will go directly down to the Varano lake and we will reach Rodi Garganico, the first stop of this tour. Here we will take a boat to the Tremiti isles, where we will have a rest before going inside the Foresta Umbra on the following day.
We will slowly find our way in the beaches and Turkey oaks and we will quickly go down towards the sea, to reach the warm city of Peschici.
On the following day we will face a shorter itinerary, visiting Vieste and allowing us to have a longer rest. This is particularly important because, after leaving Vieste, we will again go up on the holy mountain in order to reach Monte Sant’ Angelo. Once here we will surely be rewarded for the numerous uphill roads faced, by admiring the gulf of Manfredonia and visiting this charming city.

SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO –VARANO LAKE - RODI GARGANICO
Starting from High Middle Age, San Giovanni Rotondo was one stage of the Longobards' holy path, leading the pilgrims to the "San Michele cave" located in Monte Sant'Angelo.The salty and fishy Varano lake, instead, is the biggest coastal lake in Italy and a thin strip of earth separate it from the sea, whereas Varano and Capoidale outlets connect it to the sea.Rodi Garganico is a small center and from there it is possible to take a boat heading to the Tremiti Isles.

3° DAY
RODI – FORESTA UMBRA – PESCHICI
It is possible to choose 2 alternative roads: one goes directrly from Rodi to eschici and the othe one pass trought the Foresta Umbra. The roe deers living in the Foresta Umbra, for example, belong to one of the most important species in Italy, because they are part of the last three examples of " Italic roe deer" still existing.In the Foresta Umbra we can also meet wild cats, various species of woodpeckers and the charming peregrine, the snake eagle and the buzzard.We have to forcely go uphill in order to reach Peschici. Once on top we will be cuddled by its atmosphere and its sea and Tremiti panorama will surely be a great reward.
