Welcome to the heel of Italy’s famous boot. In many ways Puglia can be seen as an
excellent holiday destination. It has everything a perfect holiday needs. It’s all year round
warm and sunny, and it has a more than 800km diverse coastline with beautiful beaches
and sandy bays with wind-eroded cliffs. You surely won’t have to look to far to find your
ideal beach spot. Polignano al Mare might be one of those places: this city became
famous because of it’s worldy known sing-along ‘Volare’ by Domenico Modugno.
Apart from the wonderful climate and beaches, Puglia also features cute white towns,
magnificent landscapes, many archaeological sites and a sublime culinary tradition.
The Itria Valley is covered in vineyards, orchards and rolling hills with little white
huts or ‘trulli’ dotted all around. The highest concentration of these famous little circular stone houses with conical roofs are located in Alberobello, not surprisingly our departure point for the Vespa tours!
The Trulli tour will guide you through the Trulli area so you can become a true Trulli expert! Secondly there is the Ostuni tour which takes you to one of Puglia’s most charming towns, ‘The White City’ or Ostuni. Other stops on your Vespa route are Locorotondo and Cisternino which have wonderful old-town centers. Also the Grotte tour you won’t forget. Here you will discover Puglia’s natural cave wonders in the ‘Grotte di Castellana’. And if you’re amazed by these wonders of nature than certainly the Gravine tour will stun you too: it shows some spectacular deep rocky ravines formed by what was once the sea.
Just outside of Puglia in the region of Basilicata there is ‘Matera’, also known as the city of the ‘Sassi’. Matera has recently been nominated as 2019’s European Capital of Culture and has been on the world’s heritage UNESCO list since 1993. It is described as “one of the most outstanding organized urban settlements ever created in the world, a real masterpiece of human creative genius and capacity to adapt.”
Matera and other beautiful cities like Bari, Brindisi and Gallipoli are just outside the routes but can certainly be added. You name it, we’ll arrange it!
