Here, history has left indelible marks of rich, ancient civilizations.
Our range of accommodation in this region can be said to be all encompassing. From the most economic solutions, always personally selected by our staff, such as the 3 star Eos hotel in Lecce, or Jolly Park Hotel in Gallipoli, to medium standard solutions in the city center, such as the 4 star The Nicolaus Hotel in Bari and Palace San Michele in Monte Sant’Angelo. Among our proposals, there are fine facilities for a memorable stay in Baroque Lecce at the 5 star Risorgimeno Resort, where you can also experience the nature of Puglia at the Casale
Del Murgese in Savelletri di Fasano.
You have the option of staying in a trullo, the typical Apulian country house, thanks to our competitive proposals and careful selection of facilities, carried out in collaboration with Trulli and Puglia Resort. Another typical accommodation in Puglia are the masseria, i.e. converted old farm houses into luxury resorts, such as
the 5 star Masseria in Torre Coccaro.
Orecchiette with wild broccoli are the gastronomic symbol of Puglia. This local specialty has been included in your itineraries and can be enjoyed in Alberobello, one of the must see destinations for those visiting this region, at the restaurants Trullo D’Oro and L’Aratro,
ancient structures born from the conversion of trulli farm houses.
The Itria valley, a lesser known but very charming corner of Puglia,
offers the opportunity to enjoy unique delicacies. In Cisternino, one can taste preparations of pork cooked in the same butchers that deal with the selections of meat, washed down with the local white wines such as Verdeca and Bianco D’Alessandro. Altamura, near Bari, offers the first bread with European DOP certification, tasted together with
local extra virgin olive oil.
In addition to extensive support services in the main ports, Bari
and Brindisi, and local guide services in major cities like Alberobello,
Castel del Monte, and Trani, amongst traditional tourist interests,
we can offer customized services for religious tourism to discover the places from the childhood and adult life of St. Pius, perhaps the most famous saint of the 21st century.
In addition to visiting the trulli, in these structures it is possible to organize cooking classes to learn how to prepare the famous orecchiette pasta or focaccia, a dough made from bread and potatoes, or tasting the best wines of Apulia (Negroamaro and Primitivo), accompanied by local cheeses and cold cuts.
Lucania, a tangential region to Puglia, offers the possibility for unforgettable excursions. The Sassi of Matera, just 70 km from the
trulli of Alberobello, have been a Unesco heritage Site since 1993,
and represent an outstanding example of an urban ecosystem where
living in caves became a way of life right up to modernity.
The cuisine of Matera offers unforgettable local products to taste in this world of stone: we arrange a culinary stop at restaurants formed from the “Sassi” such as the Terrazzino or Nadì, where you can taste lampascioni (wild onions) or cruschi (crunchy) dried peppers.
The Tremiti islands, a paradise off the coast of Puglia, are five pristine strips of land reached by group or tailor made tours, which we can offer leaving from Foggia and Termoli.
