Puglia around us
There are numerous activities and places that our guests can plan and visit during their stay
The white village of the fornello
The white historic center of Cisternino, typical of the villages of the Itria Valley, is also defined as an example of spontaneous architecture and is included in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Dinner in Cisternino means tasting the local specialties with dishes based on vegetables and meat, due to the presence of the many stoves, real butchers with catering service in which to taste unique roast meat specialties such as bombette or gnumareddi, made with the entrails of pork and local veal.
The white city on the millenary olive trees
It is one of the must-see destinations for tours in Puglia, for the beauty of its white medieval village which overlooks the suggestive Piana degli Ulivi Millenari that reaches Monopoli. The uniqueness of the medieval village intersected by houses, alleys, stairways, Aragonese bastions all in white lime, the proximity to the Adriatic coast visible from the various balconies and terraces that surround it, give Ostuni the name of belvedere city.
One of the most beautiful villages in Italy
On the podium among the most beautiful villages in Italy, Locorotondo is another of the pearls of Puglia. This village is located in the enchanting context of the Valle d'Itria and the Valle dei Trulli. Literally it means round place, it takes its name from the round shape of its historic center. Looking at it from above, the small white brick houses with sloping roofs form, in fact, many concentric circles.
World Heritage Site, capital of the Trulli
It is one of the UNESCO sites of Puglia, a symbol of Puglia. Wandering from one trullo to another, many of which today are used as shops and businesses, you can't help but stop to take the perfect photo of the Trullo Sovrano or the Trulli Siamesi. The Trullo Sovrano, an iconic monument of the city of Alberobello, represents the greatest architecture in the construction of the trullo both for its impressive size and for the walls that go from dry stone to the use of mortar.
Between sea, art and nightlife
Monopoli stretches along 15 km of low and indented coast with more than 25 sandy coves suitable for bathing, embellished by a characteristic historic center of the early medieval period surrounded by high walls, adorned with towers such as Torre Cintola and Torre San Giorgio, churches and Castles, surrounded by farms, olive and almond trees. Once in Monopoli, the first thing to do is definitely take part in the walking tours in the ancient village, to discover the Cathedral of the Madonna della Madia, the Diocesan museum, the Porto Vecchio.
