Ostuni

The white city

 

The gleaming white city of Ostuni sits atop the last hill of the southern Murgia plateau. Looking out from its fortifications, your eye is drawn over a plain full of ancient olive trees toward the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea.
While in Ostuni, we will take a walking tour through the medieval narrow streets lined with white-washed buildings, ending at the town’s sophisticated XV century gothic cathedral, influenced by the Venetian architecture.

Not just an open-air museum but also a lively town, with wonderful hotels, nice restaurants, cafés, gelaterie and cocktail bars open till late night, the perfect place to enjoy your leisure time and your evenings in Valle d’Itria.
