This area is extremely complex yet easy to visit and love. In this crossroads of peoples and travellers in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea, tourists are always welcomed with warm hospitality.
Going through age-old traditions and amazing landscapes moulded by man, you will reach monumental historical sites, such as the city of Lecce and its Baroque style, and magical places sculpted by nature, such as the Caves of Castellana.
Other must-see destinations are Alberobello and its trulli, the traditional huts with conical roofs, and the Sassi di Matera, both UNESCO sites, which will take you back in time.
Buffet breakfast. Recommended visits to Castel del Monte and Trani. The castle of Castel del Monte is octagonal in shape, with eight towers, still octagonal, placed at the corners. A renowned seaside resort, Trani hides behind its modern quarters, an old town and monuments, in peculiar its cathedral and the adjoining Campanile (bell tower), which evoke very rich Middle Ages. Overnight.
Departure towards Polignano a Mare whose historic center falls steeply into the Adriatic Sea and Alberobello with the “Trulli”, curious dwellings of rural origin built using a daring technical system, with a central plan with dry stone walls and a conical roof. The historical center has been declared a national monument and included in Unesco’s World Heritage List.
