Experiences

Culture, sport, nature, food and wine tasting

Puglia offers everything you can dream of!
Besides the artistic heritage the region offers wonderful natural landscapes where you can have some sport experience while discovering the land. So why don’t you join us on a bike tour along the old roman way Via Traiana and experience with us the magnificent rural landscape of the region? What about an exciting hiking tour in the spectacular nature and marine reserve of Torre Guaceto or a guided exciting tour in one of the most complex and spectacular underground karst cave systems in Italy?

Puglia is also a wine travel destination! With its 110,000 hectares of vineyards Puglia is among the most important regions that produce wine in Italy.

You can join us on the path of Primitivo red wine in Manduria or at one of our wine cellar visits and wine tastings! Puglia is also the right place for foodies. You can discover the “green gold of Puglia” by visiting a traditional olive oil farm and joining us at an olive oil tasting. We also go out for superb dinners together tasting meat and seafood of this unique land. To top it all, we also offer the opportunity to participate in introductory Apulian cooking classes.
