ON THE WILD WAY
18 July
trekking and bike tour around Castel del Monte
(nature, drink and food e theater)

The day will begin with the guided tour of Castel del Monte (without entrance, but with description from the outside) and will continue with the departure of two routes of your choice, one on foot and the other by bicycle, both immersed in the nature of the Park National of Alta Murgia. The lunch break will see both groups (cyclists and walkers) gather for a moment of sharing right at the foot of the charming castel, but always surrounded by the lush spring nature of the Park. The excursion on foot will be a real “itinerant laboratory for the recognition of wild herbs”. The lunch will include the tasting of dishes based on the same plants whose participants will have learned to recognize scents and colors and to satisfy the soul, the food will be seasoned with a theatrical performance focused on stories dedicated to seeds of herbs and wild plants and how they implement incredible strategies to be able to “travel” around the world.
The starting point will be for everyone at 9:00 am at the Parking Area at the foot of Castel del Monte (reachable by bus prepared by us), we will move from there to enjoy the guided tour of the manor of Federico II (lasting about 1 hour). The two excursions will start immediately after the visit to the Castle. The bike excursion will start at 11:30 always from the parking area. (the bikes will be provided by our organization and the participants will find them already on site)
The excursion on foot, however, will start right from the Castle at 11:00.
Both excursions will include a lunch break for 13:00 (picnic with tasting), with stage performance, in a natural corner right at the foot of the Castle. Our guides will lead the participants to this place and, at the end of the activity, will guide them to the bus that will pick them up nearby to bring them back to the Trani station.
