Gargano and Saint Pio
“Until now we have done nothing, or at least very little; sunrises and sunsets followed one another as years went by and we did not wonder how we spent them; if anything had to be repaired, added, removed from our behaviour.”
From St. Pio’s Meditations


Tour 4 days – 3 nights


1st Day: Tour start, San Giovanni Rotondo

3rd Day: San Giovanni Rotondo, Monte Sant’Angelo, Vieste

Breakfast at the hotel and depart for Monte Sant’Angelo for a visit to the Sanctuary of Saint Michael. The shrine was built between the end of the V and the beginning of the VI centuries. It is dedicated to the memory of three apparitions followed after many centuries by a fourth one. The tour continues with the panoramic visit of Vieste, a coastal village with typical white small houses perched on a rock facing the sea. The Cathedral with its beautiful portal and inner colonnade and the Castle, an imposing medieval construction commissioned by Frederick II of Swabia, are the most interesting sights.

4th Day: San Giovanni Rotondo, Pietrelcina, Departure

Breakfast at the hotel and depart for Pietrelcina, a town near Benevento, where Francesco Forgione, better known as Padre Pio, was born in 1887. His native house and the museum are a must for a better understanding of the Saint’s life and work. It is almost an emotional experience which explains his unconditional love for God. Lunch and departure.
