Tastes of the Mediterranean: Puglia Tour

Guided Tours That Are Intimate, Emotional & Authentic.

Feel like part of the famiglia and soak up more than just the Salento sun and homemade tomato sauce.

Get to know the time-honoured traditions, rich history and southern flair that make Puglia and Basilicata so unique.

Prepare yourself for a foray into the undiscovered regions of Puglia and Basilicata. We offer a 10-day tour with the Baroque gem of Lecce as your home base, where you’ll stay in a typical, family-owned bnb characterized by exposed Leccese stone and star-vaulted ceilings. Explore the most characteristic cities in Salento (the high-heel peninsula of the boot), with visits to Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli, as well as tours of the UNESCO world heritage sites of Matera and Alberobello.

Each tour is one-of-a-kind as we take advantage of local festivals and seasonal traditions.

A magical journey that will delight the senses!

Our travel packages include a 9-night, 10-day travel experience around Puglia and Basilicata in an intimate group setting (12-15 people max), that will give you an insider’s view of the best this area has to offer. Starting from €1,900 (approximately $2,200).

Enjoy $150 off the total package price when you book at least six months in advance.

Our activities, from participating in the olive harvest to exploring the grottoes around the Cape of Salento, to visiting any number of the fabulous destinations around Puglia and Basilicata, can be booked as day trips for those traveling on their own.
