Discover an off-the-beaten track region abundant in olive groves, trulli and out-of-this-world cuisine with a tour of Puglia and Basilicata
Nothing excites quite like Puglian cuisine, medieval cave dwellings, and characterful white-washed towns with their own unique personality. Our tours of Puglia and Basilicata will take you through the regions’ highlights: Bari, Puglia’s chicest coastal town with narrow streets, traditional trattorias and cool alfresco bars; Alberobello, home to over 1,500 white-washed, 14th-Century Trulli; the ‘White City’ of Ostuni, where you’ll learn how to make Puglian pasta orecchiette; and Matera, a pre-historic UNESCO World Heritage-listed town in Basilicata, famous for its atmospheric sassi – eighth-Century cave-dwellings which are carved into the cliff face of a river gorge. Cuisine is very much at the forefront of our tours, from homemade meals in masserias, to cooking classes and olive oil tastings.
