Day 1: Arrival
Day 2 – Ostuni and Alberobello
Follow your guide through picturesque labyrinth of alleyways and
stairways in Ostuni, the ‘white city of Apulia’, a splendid place which reigns over olive groves from the Middle Ages. Have lunch in a typical masseria, and taste the local wine. Continue on to Alberobello and visit the famous conical stone roofed ‘Trulli’ houses.
Day 3: Lecce and Otranto
Have a stroll in Lecce, known as the pearl of the Apulian Baroque: visit
the Piazza Oronzo, which forms the heart of the city, and see the remains of the Roman amphitheatre. In the afternoon, visit Otranto and dive into the history of the Mediterranean. Crowns the day, a burrata cheese tasting.
Day 4: 2019’s Capital of Culture
The sight of the so-called ‘Sassi’ of Matera is astonishing. Carved out of
the cliff face in tufa stone, these stone dwellings have become a UNESCO World Heritage City and will be a European Capital of Culture in 2019.
Day 5: Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius
Discover Pompeii, the city destroyed in antiquity by the devastating eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. The size of the ruins set amidst an idyllic landscape convey a lovely impression of what the city must have looked like during the period of the Roman Empire. Later on, turn your attention to Mt. Vesuvius, where a cellar with wine variety on Vesuvius slope awaits you.
Day 6: Amalfi coast ride
Ride along one of the world’s most beautiful coastal roads, passing by
Positano to reach Amalfi. Among the main attractions are the cathedral,
the tower bell and the ‘paradise cloister’. Along the way enjoy a Limoncello tasting, a liqueur made from odour-intensive lemon peels.
