From the green olives trees to the white towns perched on the Mediterranean Sea
What I'm proposing to you is what I usually love doing on my day off, and why not share with you one of my special trip day in my colourful Apulia?
Just go far from the traffic of the huge cities and fill my eyes and soul with the green of the Valle d'Itria country where millions of secular olive trees seem to dance the tango in our red land embraced by "tratturi" dry stone walls that match perfectly with the characteristic stone houses with a conical roof in Alberobello, where "trulli" and their interesting and funny history make this town Heritage of Unesco.
Not far from Alberobello, just raise your head to see behind the olive trees a white town. Its name is Ostuni where to enjoy an Italian cappuccino ("al banco" like Italians do) in the main square before to continue the tour through the olive groves.
Finally, what a better end of a "passeggiata" in Polignano, which is the town of the panoramic balconies overlooking the Adriatic sea, delicious homemade ice cream and "caffè speciale". . .
Our plan for the day:
- Depart from Bari to reach Alberobello
- Guided tour in Alberobello (Aia Piccola and Rione Monti)
- Visit of Ostuni (the white town and the ancient walls)
- Promenade or "passeggiata" in Polignano
- Return to Bari.

My family and I had the pleasure of spending a day with Giovanna exploring Puglia. She did a wonderful job of introducing us to the culture of Puglia and allowing us to experience things we never would have been able to do on our own from learning to make homemade pasta to discovering how olive oil is made to being invited into a residents home in one of the trullis in Alberobello. She truly made our day special and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to experience Puglia.
