colours and flavors of Puglia
As if we were painters, we expertly mix the different colors that characterize the Puglia to create an overall picture of this wonderful region: the blue of the sky and the seaside, the green of the countryside, the grey of the stones, the white of the houses, the rubin red of the wines.
We will start with Polignano a Mare (the birthplace of the world famous singer Domenico Modugno) with its lively and pictoresque city center, the terraces overlooking the Adriatic Sea with breathtaking views of the cliffs and the marine caves, the bridge on the beach of Lama Monachile.
Alberobello (Unesco World Heritage site) with its trulli (there are more than 1. 500): a unique kind of dry stone (without any mortar) conical roof buildings.
Bari with the picturesque old town and the French district with its liberty architecture.
It's also possibile a stroll in Noci (for a tasty informal sandwich) or in Locorotondo (the round town listed as one of the most beautiful hamlet in Italy).
A walk to enjoy the city center of Polignano a Mare with its terraces overlooking the seaside.
In Alberobello we will visit the two Unesco districts of Trulli (Aia Piccola and Monti) to discover their history, architecture, the mystery and symbolism of their finials.
Depending on the availlable time and your interests, in Bari we can enjoy the experience of the ladies making orecchiette (home made typical pasta) at the entrance of their homes, a visit to the Basilica of S. Nicholas, the cathedral of S. Sabino, the Swabian castle, the Murat district with the shopping area and the liberty style architecture.
We can also visit Locorotondo (to admire the terrific skyline and the landscape of the countryside of Itria Valley) or Noci to taste, in an informal way at a grocery or a small osteria, one of the best panino (sandwich) in Italy made with typical products, lots of creativity and passion. Another chance is a wine/extra virgin olive oil tasting with (or without) a winery/olive oil mill visit.
