Vespatour 2006 part 19: San Giovanni Rotondo and Vieste

San Giovanni RotondoMy relatives in Bisceglie are devoted to Padre Pio and they often talked about San Giovanni Rotondo.

On august 28, 2006, I went there with my Vespa to visit a holy place so important for all those devoted to the monk from Pietrelcina.

It was an important stop even for me, especially since a few days earlier I visited Assisi and the Eremo delle Carceri of San Francesco, another great example of humility.

Deep thinking and meditation are the words I could associate to the visit of the places where Padre Pio lived and received the stigmata, now valorized by a modern church designed by Renzo Piano.

After the visit to San Giovanni Rotondo, before getting back to Bisceglie, I went to the beach in Vieste on the splendid Gargano coast.

When I was a kid I used to spend the summer holidays there, camping with my parents, and that’s where I learned to swim! 😀

The 53 photos of the nineteen gallery describe the last two days in Apulia.

On august 30 I was going to leave from Bisceglie to the last stop of the Vespatour: Recanati, searching for the hedge of the infinity! 🙂
