Baccano, commonly called San Vito in Monte, was the seat of the Municipality of San Vito until 1927. It is located on the ancient Via Orvietana, which crossed it following the path of the current main road.
In Baccano there are two small squares, very close to each other. After parking in one of these, continue towards the Church (to the West). Before this, at the corner of an ancient building, there is the only road that proceeds northwards, on our right.
It is the only possible road, and there are no intersections. After covering km. 1.88, we find in front of us the ruins of Podere Terre Bianche; the road now heads south-west, going uphill. Also this road has no alternatives, until you reach a crossroads where there is a cross. Here we can choose: or continue South or take west for the indicated variant.
Proceeding straight, we will soon arrive in San Vito Castello, with its panoramic terrace from which, on clear days, you can also see the Apennines, from Monte Catria to Monte Cucco to the chain of Sibillini Mountains.
Once you have crossed the small medieval village and came out from the ancient gate, you take a path that starts right from the small parking lot close to the medieval walls, towards the East. This path becomes more evident once you have started it and you will have no difficulty in reaching the asphalt road, after passing in front of what the locals call “Lightning oak” (Quercia della saetta). At the asphalt road you will take left, northwards, to return to Baccano.
Variation: from the cross you take the right (north-west) and follow the track until you find a new track on your left which leads shortly to the asphalt road, which you take uphill until you reach San Vito Castello. From there, go back to follow the above description.
