The proposed tours are purely indicative and inspiring, each tour is extremely customizable according to the request and wishes
Transfer from Bari to Matera with a private minibus followed by check-in at the typical resort. After the briefing, introductions and lunch we will be ready for a private tour of the European Capital of Culture 2019. We will learn about the atmospheric and mysterious Sassi and the architectural beauties of the Old Town. In the evening, a traditional dinner and overnight stay.
Panoramic trekking to discover the archelogical natural heritage of the Murgia Materana, including spectacular, deep-reaching canyons and spiritual Rupestrian churches. The guide, specialised in environmental excursions will enrich our experience with precious information that will uncover the secrets of this pearl of Lucania, recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. The light lunch in a typical shepherd’s hut “lo Jazzo” will prove to be unforgettable!
We will discover Matera from another point of view thanks to the itinerary along arduous local paths. Depending on the season, we will travel down idyllic country roads on mountain bikes or safely driving comfortable touring quads. Under the environmental expert’s guidance, we will appreciate the surrounding landscape as well as its typical architectural and archaeological elements. The activites will be interspersed with cool drinks and a light lunch in a typical agriturism.
Transfer to Apulia. During the transfer we will make the most of the journey with a walking tour that will allow us to discover two locations that are unique in their beauty and singularity: Alberobello and The Gravina of Laterza. Thanks to its infamous Trulli, Alberobello is an architectural jewel in Valle d’Itria and a UNESCO heritage site. The Gravina of Laterza is an awe-inspiring natural canyon full of lush vegetation, one of the largest in Europe in fact. After checking in at our typical accomodation (Trulli or Country-House), the afternoon will be dedicated to a relaxing bike ride along the paths that weave their way through the “monumental olive groves”. We will enjoy seeing these majestic, hundred-year old olive trees, dry stone walls and ancient Masserias.
Depending on the season, we will cut through the waves in the Adriatic on a traditional sailboat. We will catch wondrous glimpses of the Apulian coastline, world-famous for the colour of its waters and its grottos. Alternatively, we can spend the day on an adventure onboard a 4x4 Land Rover, cruising down dirt tracks that will take us to the heart of the most typical locations in Apulia. We will visit the most characteristic historical towns in the region, breathing in the rich history and architecture that make this part of the world unforgettable. Then, of course, we will enjoy an exquisite traditional dinner: a real Apulian experience!
Again, depending on the season, we will enjoy a day full of adventure either in the saddle of a mountain bike or on a traditional fishing boat.
The essence of Apulia will be at its best, whilst pedaling through the monumental olive groves or fishing using ancient mariner’s techniques.
Of course, the enogastronomical excellence of Apulia and the local wildlife will embellish our journey. Our eyes and our taste-buds will be tantalised by experiences that only Apulia can offer. In the evening: farewell party with an interactive cookery class: “the Panzerotti Night”.
The group will be accompanied with a private minibus to Bari (Railway station and/or Airport). End of package.
