Overview

Book
Described as an Italian feast of colours and flavours, Puglia and Basilicata are home to a dramatic coast, towns bursting with medieval charm, magical hill-top villages, an abundance of UNESCO World Heritage sites, Baroque architecture, fairy-tale houses, olive groves, vineyards and charming footpaths nestled in a timeless landscape. The magical heel of Italy is the most flavoursome area in Italy making it perfect for a walking, sightseeing and food lovers holiday. The regions use the freshest of ingredients to cook up tasty dishes prepared with love. In Lecce, Italy's most beautiful Baroque city, we stay in the heart of the old quarter perfect for experiencing piazza life and strolling through cobbled streets. Well walk along breath taking coastal trails overlooking the Ionian Sea, visit the medieval walled city of Gallipolli and explore the fortified jewel of Otranto, once Italy's gateway to the Orient.

Next its a picture perfect trullo amongst the magical landscape of Aleoberollo. Well have a go at pasta making and wine tasting after hiking from Locorotondo to Cisternino through a rural landscape of olive groves, fruit trees and vineyards. In neighbouring Basilicata we lose ourselves in the surreal cave city of Matera. Here we'll explore Matera's rock-cut churches before heading down into the ancient sassi with its labyrinth of mysterious streets and beautiful architecture. Finally we head Bari, the regions capital. With its towering basilica, dramatic walls, historical centre and excellent promenade, Bari is a great end the holiday. If you're looking to experience Puglia and sample tasty dishes on a walking and discovery journey, then this is the perfect holiday.
