ROAD TRIP: TRAVELLING THROUGH PUGLIA

One of the least well-known parts of Italy and yet one of the most picturesque and authentic...
With endless olive groves bordered by the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean sea, three UNESCO World Heritage sites, and ancestral traditions that remain to this day, the Puglia region is bursting with the riches inherited from its history, culture, cuisine and enjoys a mild, sunny climate.
Whether it is the mountainous region of Gargano, with villages that can only be reached by small country roads lined with olive trees and vineyards, or the unspoiled beaches and coves that surround the region, Puglia gives you the opportunity to discover another Italy, far from the traditional tourist trails...

Your detailed itinerary



Day 1: Arrival in Bari/Conversano - 34 km

On arrival at the airport, pick up your hire car before heading to Conversano.

Take the time to stroll around the historic town centre, stopping off at one of the many pavement cafés. Overnight stay in the Conversano area.

Day 2: Conversano/Matera/Conversano - 120 km

Breakfast at the hotel.

Suggestions for places to visit:
Don't miss a walk around Matera (65 km from Conversano) to admire the "Sassi". These troglodyte houses are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the streets often run on top of the white buildings. Explore this fascinating city as you walk through a vast complex of galleries and cellars dug into the tufa! Next, drive to Conversano for the night.

Overnight stay in the Conversano area.

Day 3: Conversano/Bari/Polignano A Mare/Monopoli/Conversano - 95 km


Breakfast at the hotel.

Suggestions for places to visit:
Explore the atmospheric medieval town of Bari, where narrow streets and stairways are often hiding women preparing fresh pasta in front of their homes! Bari is also home to two beautiful churches dedicated to the city's patrons. Take your time, strolling the Bari streets... Then head towards the coast, to Polignano A Mare, where a beautiful panorama of houses clinging to the cliff face awaits... Enjoy a charming stroll through the narrow winding streets steeped in history that run down to the sea. Nearby Monopoli with its medieval town centre and a beautiful view from the castle is well worth a visit.

Overnight stay in the Conversano area.

Day 4: Conversano/Alberobello/Ostuni/Conversano - 130 km

Breakfast at the hotel.
Suggestions for places to visit:
Drive to Alberobello, a must-see on any trip to Puglia and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy strolling through the narrow winding streets exploring the magical "trulli", the circular houses with conical roofs typical of the region.
Enjoy a light lunch in a restaurant in one of the trullo, one of our favourite spots in Alberobello. (This lunch is included.)

Then head for Ostuni, which is built on three hills and overlooks endless olive groves. Explore the picturesque old town's narrow streets dotted with white houses and baroque and Renaissance palaces.
Overnight stay in the Conversano area.


Day 5: Conversano/Brindisi/Lecce - 130 km

Breakfast at the hotel.

Suggestions for places to visit:
Head to Brindisi, known as the "Gateway to the East" and an important port of call since Roman times. Then take time to explore the magnificent architectural backdrop of Lecce. The local stone is very soft and lends itself wonderfully to the many remains for which the city is renowned.

Overnight stay in the Lecce area.

Day 6: Lecce/Otranto/Galatina/Gallipoli/Lecce - 148 km

Breakfast at the hotel.
Suggestions for places to visit:
Take a trip to Otranto in the east of Italy, where a dialect very close to Greek is still spoken. You can stroll through the old town and visit the cathedral with its amazing mosaic floor.

Head inland to discover the charming little town of Galatina, where you can visit the chapel of San Paolo, where the "tarantas", women bitten by tarantulas, found a cure for their illness. Then head for the Gallipoli peninsula with its whitewashed houses and terraced roofs and enjoy the breathtaking views as you stroll along the ramparts.

Overnight stay in the Lecce area.

Our top recommendation for dinner in Lecce is Alle Due Corte, where you can sample the local speciality Ciceri e Tria, homemade pasta with chickpeas. (This is only a suggestion, dinner is not included.)

Day 7: Lecce/Santa Maria di Leuca or Porto Cesareo/Lecce - 165 km

Breakfast at the hotel.
Enjoy a relaxing day exploring the most beautiful beaches in southern Italy.
Overnight stay in the Lecce area.

Day 8: Lecce/Bari airport - return home - 160 km

Breakfast at the hotel (it's best not to book a flight for too early in the morning, so you have plenty of time to get back to the airport - the drive will take around 1.5 hours).
This is the end of your journey through the stunning wilderness of Puglia. Return your hire car at Bari airport and have a great trip back!
