Nestled in the sun-kissed embrace of Italy's southern coast, the Puglia region beckons with its rustic charm and serene landscapes. Known for its iconic Trulli houses and olive groves stretching as far as the the eye can see, every corner reveals a story of history, culture, and natural beauty in this coastal gem.
Your journey begins with 3-nights in breathtaking Bari, a tranquil haven waiting to be explored. You'll embark on a full-day excursion to the enchanting town of Alberobello, where the landscape is adorned with whimsical Trulli - distinctive cone-shaped houses that paint a fairytale scene. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Alberobello offers a glimpse into a unique architectural heritage.
You will then discover the history of olive oil in Ostuni and indulge in the rich flavours of Puglia with a full-day excursion. You'll venture to the ancient White City of Ostuni, where an old Apulian masseria awaits, and delve into the secrets of organic extra virgin olive oil production as you stroll through olive tree-filled parks and explore fortified walls. Next, uncover the mysteries of the oldest Apulian frantoio ipogeo—an underground olive mill with a history spanning 3000 years. Conclude your immersive journey with a tasting session guided by a professional expert, savouring the nuances of four organically grown extra virgin olive oils.
