Polignano a Mare: E-Bike Schiacciata e Vino

1. Polignano a Mare: E-Bike Schiacciata e Vino

Along countryside lanes, Masserie and dry stone walls, I'll show you the places I love and live in my everyday life. We will cicle together for 11km (approximately 7 miles). We start from Polignano a Mare, known as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic,' heading towards Conversano, one of the most historic and artistic villages in Puglia. A tasty stop awaits us at a traditional local bakery, where we'll indulge in freshly baked Puglian focaccia by Donato, accompanied by a glass of wine. Before reaching Polignano, we'll take a pleasant break at the 'Verso' bar to refresh and recharge with a soft drink. On the way back, we'll enjoy seasonal fruits, picking them straight from the trees (figs, fioroni, pears, blackberries, mulberries). Our tour will conclude with a sample of Puglian liqueurs. I can’t wait to meet you for our little adventure on our bikes, experiencing local life, far away from crowded places, amongst nature. *Minimum height to participate in the bike tour 163 cm (5'4 ft).
