What you'll do

We'll explore hidden gems of the old town "Junno" made of wonderful narrow streets, vibrant squares, churches and lovely spots from where you'll have an amazing view over the ancient town and on the coast. Going down 86 steps you'll visit with me the amazing Holy Shrine, where the Archangel Michael appeared in a natural cave in the V Century.
After having experienced the Shrine, you'll walk through the town's streets to get to a family run cheese factory where we'll learn how the famous Mozzarella and Caciocavallo cheese are prepared.
Having the opportunity to experience firsthand the traditional method of mozzarella cheese making, you'll be provided with gloves and aprons to make your own braided cheese and mozzarella knots!
After so much work, we'll taste those fresh cheeses and some excellent local wines in a typical wine shop: a great selection from the Puglia's five main wine districts, strongly anchored to typical grapes that characterize the productions...Cheers! (Salute!)

Where you'll be

The most attractive and oldest part of town is the neighbourhood Junno where you can get happily lost in the maze of cobbled alleyways and staircases through the white houses and tiny squares decorated with flower boxes.We'll visit the Holy Shrine of Michael the Archangel located in a natural cave, Unesco World Heritage site since 2011.After that, we'll have a mozzarella cheese making class and pleasant time to taste finest local wines at Luca's.

Angela is a local, in fact born in Monte Sant Angelo, so she has a deep and personal knowledge of the town, its history and current activities. She is the best possible host, punctual, friendly, so knowledgeable and always interesting, all in excellent English (other languages Italian and Spanish). From the history of Michael to the current cheese making, hands on participation to wine tasting, this tour was fun, interesting and informative. We had a great time and I thoroughly recommend it when in Monte S. Angelo

Angela was a very friendly, funny, and experienced guide who showed us different parts of Monte Sant'angelo. She has a lot of knowledge of the town and showed us places and people we wouldn't have seen or met without her. After a short walk through the historic center we visited the Santuario di San Michele Arcangelo were she told us about the history and origin. From there we moved to a small cheese factory to make our own mozzarella cheese and took some cheese to eat while drinking whine in a local wine store. It was a very long and complete experience with very good value! Would definitely recommend if you are near Monte Sant'angelo.
