About this tour

Puglia, known for whitewashed hill towns, traditional farmland, fine cuisine and a sweeping Mediterranean coastline, is the heel of Italy, and until recently, its best-kept secret. With a focus on art, architecture, traditions and local cuisine, this trip explores the highlights of the region. From Matera, a Unesco-listed town carved into bare limestone rock, where centuries-old caves are still inhabited, we travel to the elegant white city of Ostuni and on to the medieval coastal town of Otranto and baroque Lecce, known as the Florence of the South.
