About Us 

Apulia Slow Travel is a tour company run by passionate locals offering tailor-made tours for solo travelers, and small and medium-sized groups. We introduce visitors to Southern Italy – particularly the “heel” of the Italian boot, Puglia—in a friendly environment and in harmony with nature.

Our Concept
Apulia Slow Travel is the creation of two friends with different personalities and backgrounds but with one thing in common: a love for their country. Our concept is different from the typical mass tourism. We pursue “slow tourism,” which allows our guests to experience directly the reality of the place they are visiting, fully in touch with local culture and connecting with local people. Travelling with us doesn’t mean being a tourist—you are our guest, and through our tours, you will experience local life, and eat and sleep the local way. Together, we will see fantastic landscapes, taste delicious authentic local food, enjoy a vast cultural and artistic heritage and meet very welcoming people.

Our Services
We arrange various tours according to your personal preferences and provide a wide range of ways to discover the country: culture & history, food & wine, sport & nature or a mix of everything!

Ciao! I lived and traveled abroad for some years getting in touch with different cultures until I decided to quit my previous office job and move back to Southern Italy where I started doing what I call the most beautiful job in the world: showing my homeland to guests from all over the world in a simple, genuine way and through my life experience. I have always found very fascinating to explore one country with locals. Puglia is an amazing land, magnificently shaped by the sacrifices of generations of tireless farmers, who have preserved the landscape, and the patient work of skilled artists, who have handed down to us a unique artistic heritage. I am deeply in love with this country and can’t wait to show it to you, just like I would do with a good friend! A presto!

Hi! I am Michele, I started my professional career as an attorney. I practiced many different law professions, even abroad, in Vienna for over 8 years. During these years I took care of my passion for travelling and discovering new countries.
And then, I found out I loved another way of travelling: visiting new and exciting places with locals and getting familiar to these places. I discovered this in beautiful Puglia and I got in love with this region. Here I started cooperating with international tour operators, I became a professional tourist guide.
I think my personal goal now is to combine a professional career with the love for this region and to share it with my guests. Making friends with them. With my friends at Apulia Slow Travel, I made this dream a reality.
