Tour guide

Where the Murgia degrades, we find the Valle d'Itria, a green pad halfway between the Adriatic and the Ionian sea and land, to discover trulli and white towns, green valleys and olive groves. Full day tour on a 9 seats comfortable van, with conditioning air system and professional drivers who share all their love for the territory.

Departure at 9:00 from Lecce, the first stop is Polignano a Mare, the town of Puglia, which has a great charm for its uniqueness, with the cliffs that overlooking the sea, the historic center that "tells" the civilizations that have inhabited these places and the food and wine of the area. Polignano is the only Italian destination among those selected by CNN between the 52 beaches and the 12 most beautiful places in the world. The tour then arrives at Alberobello, one of the 54 Italian sites included by UNESCO in the World Heritage List and the capital of the Trulli. The historical center is in fact made up entirely of these particular pyramid-shaped buildings that make it unique in the world. The Trulli, mainly present in the Valle d'Itria, date back to the mid-fourteenth century, are still used today as homes and are a brilliant and long-lived example of spontaneous architecture. The next stop is Locorotondo, in the circuit of the most beautiful ancient villages of Italy, with its flowered balconies. Locorotondo owes its name to the morphology assumed by the first inhabited center, built around the year one thousand. The centuries-old winemaking vocation of the village has favored the production of high quality white wines, such as the famous Bianco Locorotondo doc. Continue to Ostuni, also known as the White City, due to its quaint old town that was once entirely painted with white lime. Ostuni is a fascinating tangle of narrow and winding streets, a succession of courtyards, squares and alleyways that once had five doors that they opened in the city walls, equipped with towers, plumbing and bertesque. On the top of the hill stands the Cathedral, an admirable synthesis of Romanesque, Gothic and Venetian elements, which dominates the plain of the centuries-old olive trees up to the sea. The return to Lecce is scheduled around 18:00. Free lunch, the driver will be happy to show you the best places to taste good local cuisine.
