Itinerary

Description

On our brand-new break, we explore the charming region of Puglia in the heel of Italy’s boot; home to picturesque hilltop towns, fascinating cave dwellings, olive groves and a stunning Mediterranean coastline. But perhaps the highlight will be our stay in traditional trulli, the famous and unique white-washed, conical roofed dwellings in the historic town of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Air Itinerary

Day 1
We fly to Bari/Palese airport and transfer to our trulli accommodation in Alberobello.

Day 2 – Alberobello
This morning we explore our base of Alberobello with a guided walking tour. This picturesque town has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unusual trulli, the characteristic white-washed conical roofed houses dotted around the town.

The rest of the day is free to explore at leisure before we meet in the evening to enjoy dinner together in a local restaurant.

Day 3 – Lecce
We spend the day in Lecce, a city with a lovely historic centre with picturesque little lanes, churches, palaces and a cathedral. Lecce is also a lively university city with lots of upmarket boutiques, antique shops, bars and restaurants.

Day 4 – Ostuni, Martina Franca & Locorotondo
Our first stop is Ostuni, one of the most beautiful towns in Apulia with white-washed buildings perched high on a hilltop with splendid views of the olive groves below. The main street is lined with boutiques and souvenir shops. We continue on to Martina Franca, a charming town with a lovely historic centre of winding alleys and fine buildings. Our final stop is Locorotondo, officially one of the Borghi più belli d'Italia, the most beautiful villages in Italy and also famous for its wine production.


Day 5 – Optional excursion to Matera, including entrance to Casa Grotta (£15pp)
Join our optional excursion to Matera, one of the oldest continuously inhabited towns in the world. The town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its cave dwellings that grew up on the slope of a rocky ravine. We include entrance to Casa Grotta, a typical cave dwelling that gives a glimpse into life in old Matera.

Day 6 – Castel del Monte & Trani
Another striking World Heritage Site awaits us today. 13th-century Castel del Monte stands proudly on a hilltop in Andria. Built by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, it is seen as one of his greatest castles and we include entrance to this medieval masterpiece. Next stop is the picturesque fishing port of Trani, a lovely place to explore thanks to its historic buildings, limestone streets, quaint harbour and seafront cathedral.

Day 7 – Polignano a Mare & Monopoli
After a morning at leisure, this afternoon we head first to Polignano a Mare. Perched above the Adriatic Sea on the edge of a craggy ravine dotted with caves, the town is thought to be one of the most important ancient settlements in Puglia and also boasts a captivating old quarter of white-washed buildings, narrow streets and piazzas. Our final visit is to the coastal town of Monopoli with a charming historic quarter centred around the castle and a pretty harbour full of fishing boats.

Tonight we enjoy a farewell dinner together in a local restaurant.

Day 8
We check out of our trulli and transfer to Bari/Palese airport for our return flight home.
