In your free days you can book our optional day trips.

Trani, Monopoli and seafood lunch 

Our day begins in Trani, one of the most beautiful cities along the Adriatic Sea. Trani is famous for its Romanesque cathedral directly facing the sea, dedicated to St. Nicholas the Pilgrim, as well as its ancient harbor, which provides for an elegant setting for the many who stroll between colorful fishing boats and fine restaurants. Finally, we will visit Monopoli, a wonderful town along the Adriatic coast with about 13 kilometers (8 miles) of coastline. The origins of this ancient town date back to fifth century BC.

We will take an unforgettable guided tour among the most important historical buildings, such as the baroque Co-Cathedral of Our Lady of Madia and the wonderful Castle of Charles V, symbol of the city. We will end our trip along the harbor, which is full of fine restaurants, colorful fishing boats and very stylish bars, and where we will enjoy the unique Mediterranean atmosphere of this town and a superb seafood lunch.

Visit of Locorotondo, cheese and mozzarella tasting and visit of Polignano a Mare 

The white and gleaming Locorotondo is certainly one of the most fascinating and unique places in Puglia. Its high position and its “terraces” offer unforgettable views on what can be defined as the most beautiful countryside of Puglia—the bucolic Itria Valley, dotted with trulli, farms, olive trees and dry stone walls.

After Locorotondo we will enjoy a mozzarella and burrata tasting. We will head to the coastside and tour Polignano a Mare. Perched on a high rocky outcrop that reaches into the Adriatic Sea, Polignano is a destination not to be missed on a trip to Puglia.

 

Matera 

Tour Matera – We will cross from Puglia into Basilicata to reach Matera, one of the oldest cities in the world, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture 2019. Matera sits like a giant sculpture in the center of the Murgia plateau. We will visit the ancient town, known as the Sassi, where cave dwellings, churches and reservoirs were dug out of caves. The Sassi has its roots in prehistory, preserved almost intact to this day.

We’ll discover hidden treasures in churches carved into the stone and painted by Byzantine monks, as well as modest farmhouses, evidence of the bitter reality of mid-20th Century.
