Called the ‘heel’ of the boot of Italy, Puglia is also the peninsula’s vegetable garden, which over the centuries attracted many empires to this coastal region. We believe the neighboring regions of Puglia and Basilicata –the latter MOST KNOWN FOR the town of Matera– are best experienced as a pairing.
Between the two, we’ll explore two UNESCO sites, visit with local wine, olive oil, bread and cheese makers, take in the famed trulli (conic-shape dwellings) of Alberobello, visit the quaint villages of Locorotondo, Polignano a Mare and Ostuni, and of course taste the native grapes of Negroamaro and Primitivo, found in full-bodied earthy reds, and overnight in magical masserie (fortified farmhouses or country estates), unique to the region.
