The Gargano is an excellent territory for a motorcycle trip and has in fact been inserted by the site Travel365 as one of the 10 most beautiful places to visit by motorbike in Italy.
The territory, protected by the Gargano National Park, is very varied, we find mountainous landscapes, the Umbrian forest that cuts the promontory in 2, but above all a hundred km of hairpin bends overlooking the sea.
Even if the entire Gargano lends itself to being visited by motorcycle, one of the definitely recommended routes is that of the southern coast of the Gargano which goes from Mattinata to Vieste.
45 km of hairpin bends overlooking the sea, with wonderful views of a verdant coast that is reflected in the crystalline sea are an emotion to be experienced absolutely.
Once in Vieste you can choose whether to stop, to visit the queen of tourism on the Gargano, or continue towards Peschici.
The road that leads from Mattinata to Monte Sant'angelo is also particularly beautiful, 20 km of twists and turns between mountains that drop sheer to the sea, a beautiful route that often hosts the Gargano rallies. The final destination is the beautiful medieval village of Monte Sant'Angelo, a UNESCO heritage site and famous throughout the world for the sanctuary of San Michele Arcangelo.
Another recommended route is the one towards the heart of the Umbrian forest, which can be reached starting from Vieste, Monte San'Angelo or even from Vico del Gargano, another beautiful village where you can taste a typical paposcia (homemade stuffed sandwich)
In the case of multi-day trips you will be able to appreciate the peculiarities of the Gargano, a typical cuisine based on fish, vegetables and cheeses, wonderful beaches and typical rural landscapes in the hinterland, winding roads that wind between the Apulian olive trees, farms and agritourisms . There are numerous accommodation facilities that offer hospitality, at reasonable prices especially in the spring period.
If you love freedom and want to enjoy an experience of discovering wonderful lands, the Gargano is the one for you.
