From Lecce: Ostuni, Alberobello, Polignano Tour

1. From Lecce: Ostuni, Alberobello, Polignano Tour

The first stop of the tour is Ostuni,a picturesque town to be experienced. Known as the "White City," Ostuni boasts a wonderful medieval village rich with alleys and whitewashed houses which recalls an oriental landscape. You will have free time to visit the old town center characterized by alleys, sloping stairs, courtyards, and small squares with whitewashed houses, craft shops, and typical small shops. After Ostuni reach Alberobello, crossing some charming villages located on top of the hills. The landscape is a continuous succession of ancient olive trees and trulli. Visiting beautiful Alberobello is like a journey in a timeless country. You will have free time at your disposal to explore its characteristic historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is integrally made up of Trulli, disticntive white, pyramidal structures that make it unique in the world and represent one of the most extraordinary examples of Italian folk architecture. Particularly striking are the two districts: "Rione Monti" with its local handcrafts shops and "Aia Piccola", where the most ancient Trulli and little museums are situated. After Alberobello, descending towards the Adriatic Sea, reach the beautiful Polignano a Mare, birthplace to the famous Domenico Modugno. Polignano a Mare stands on a cliff falling sheer to the sea. Explore the historic center and the remains of Roman rule. Among the latter, the bridge of the Via Traiana, still viable. Entering the historic center, through a maze of streets, alleys, and squares animated by local shops and restaurants, you find yourself on three terraces overlooking the sea to enjoy a breathtaking view.

We are happy for meeting you and maybe see you next time in Apulia again ☺️

Lovely day out

Stefano our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. Picked us up on time and allowed plenty of free time in each place. Introduced us to the local cold coffee with almond milk which was lovely. He told us he was going to be a dad on the Friday that week, hope all went well and congratulations. Katherine, Shaun & Carol
