Overview

Puglia: Italy's Undiscovered Coast

Join VBT in this seldom visited corner of Italy, where olive groves yield a golden elixir and Adriatic breezes send the spirit soaring. Charming old harbors, limestone cities, and Italian warmth greet you at every bend. And your discoveries continue into each evening at historic masserie, fortified farms where the bounty of the earth reveals the heart of this special and unique place.

  • Discover the stone trulli dwellings of Alberobello on a guided walking tour
  • Ride along quiet country roads to coastal Egnatia, past olive groves 800 years old
  • Cycle to Monopoli, where you’ll visit the lovely cathedral and admire the old harbor
  • Share a farm-fresh lunch and taste delicious olive oils with your masseria hosts
  • Bike from the ancient walled city of Acaya to the beautiful, rugged coast
  • Enjoy a ride along quiet country roads by the small and lovely Alimini Lakes
  • Pedal through timeless quaint villages on your way to the sea at Otranto
  • From your bicycle perch, savor rural pathways to the coastal town of Castro Marina
