Stroll though Idyllic old Italy
Olive groves, gorgeous whitewashed villages, charming locals, luscious food and generous hospitality sampled against the stunning aquamarine Adriatic – all play a part in this delightful trip through idyllic Puglia and Basilicata, capturing the true magic of old Italy. The history, landscape and architecture reflect the myriad civilizations that were drawn to the region’s influential port towns and position on the Adriatic; the Greeks, Romans, Venetians, Normans and Spanish all left their mark here. Our routes feature sublime coastal walks, whitewashed towns, fortified farms, and distinctive stone trulli, while the culinary highlights include fresh seafood, local wine and olive oil. What’s more, given its relative underdevelopment, Puglia offers some of the best and most remote walks we know.
