DAY TWO-SEVEN

During our stay, the following excursions are included:

o Scenic coach tour through the southern Italian countryside to visit Ostuni, 'La Citta Blanca'. Rising high above the vast olive carpeted plateau of the lower Murgia, Ostuni has long been an awe-inspiring sight for those travelling across Puglia.

o Alberobello, famous for its collection of Trullo, traditional dry-stone conical roofed dwellings which are only found in the Itria Valley. Alberobello has the largest collection of original buildings, many of which are still occupied today.

o Lecce, nicknamed 'Florence of the south'. Built in local soft creamy limestone with dazzling architectural surprises around every corner, Lecce is a minor Baroque masterpiece and its spider web of streets offers a range of vistas.

o Otranto, one of Puglia's most charming towns. The imposing castle, thick perimeter walls and robust towers dominate much of the town, giving way to a small port, a series of sea fronted promenades with excellent restaurants, sandy beaches and turquoise waters.

o Trani, an instantly recognisable landmark for sailors navigating the Adriatic Sea over the centuries. Trani's iconic seafront cathedral is one of the finest in Italy. The old town centre is a charming medieval network of streets with plenty of fine architecture arranged around the picturesque fishing port.

o 2 free full days to explore further at your own pace.
