Perfect places to escape for something less frenetic and crowded!


Not to mention the "stars" of the area: food, wine and olive oil.

Bari: the capital of Puglia is big town with trendier inclinations, in contrast to the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town.
Castel del Monte, ". . . a unique piece of medieval architecture", and Trani with its Cathedral by the sea.
In between the Valle d'Itria: Alberobello known worldwide for its "Trulli" (Unesco World Heritage), will make you feel like in a fairy tale. . . as well as the countryside hosting amazing ancient olive trees. Then Polignano a Mare, to discover its wonderful "terraces" overhanging on the sea.
The south is Salento: Lecce, the "capital" of baroque style, red wines. . . Otranto, Gallipoli and beaches on a turquoise sea, myths and truths of centuries of Turkish invasion.
Last but not least, Matera (Unesco World Heritage)
Almost abandoned only 20 years ago, Matera is now considered one of the top italian destinations, thanks to its unique landscape made of caves and ancient house dwellings, the "Sassi"

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful 3 days tour. The personalised tour met all my desire & dreams come true. Gianluca is flexible, friendly, patient & accomodate your every wish. Thanks for the 'generous time' spent, we had great lunch everyday; thanks for showing us all the great view points & nice photos taken; thanks for contacting the 'owners' & sending us to the B&Bs (with the heavy luggages); thanks for making this a safe & memorable trip. Love Puglia & miss you much!
