A full immersion tour discovering the beauties of this unique area.


Description

 

Meet your driver and your guide in the lobby of the hotel and start your tour of Itria Valley.

Departing from your hotel, you will travel aboard a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. This tour will give you the opportunity to discover the Itria Valley, an area characterized by the presence of the extraordinary "Trulli", mythical houses with a conical roof, built with overlapped dried limestone. The whole Valley is surrounded by wonderful countrysides dominated by a rich vegetation and natural landscapes. It includes characteristic villages, among which you will visit Alberobello, Locorotondo and Ostuni. Each of these towns appear magical and contain a fairy tale-like atmosphere.

 

Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1996, has the largest number of Trulli in the town of Puglia. With destinations that attract millions of tourists to its narrow streets, Alberobello offers visitors a unique scenario. Two particularly striking districts include: "Rione Monti" with its local handcrafts shops and "Aia Piccola", where the most ancient Trulli and little museums are situated. Locorotondo is nicknamed "the balcony on the Itria Valley" because of its spectacular valley views. Considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, it offers visitor the opportunity to get lost between picturesque narrow stone streets and small white houses with gable roofs called "Cummerse". Ostuni is known as the “White City" par excellence. It is situated on the Murge Hills with steep walls and its historic center, painted only in white, is a proliferation of plans, of ups and downs, of alleys and stairways, of tangled streets that cross arches and squares. On its summit stands the monumental Cathedral, in late Gothic style.
You will also stop in a chamring winery near locorotondo to taste local wines, olive oil and fresh made burrata cheese. Apulia is one of the most interesting area in Italy for its food tradition, most of the inhabitants still are devoted to cultivation in small farms, where the quality is equal to the the passion of the farmers.
