The Heel of the Boot: Matera and Puglia

An easy tour in Southern Italy

8 Days Easy-Moderate 280 KmAVG 46 Km

An easy tour through the Heel of the Boot. From Basilicata with round trips starting from the Sassi of Matera and the Park of Rupestrian Churches, you will head on to the Apulian land.

Cycling through the Murge plateau (a territory that encloses an astonishing variety of landscapes: caves, sanctuaries, defensive strongholds, churches and rock settlements, small towns and big cities), you will stay in the Itria valley, characterized by a flourishing vegetation where olive trees stand. These are cultivated in masserie lands, small typical local stone fortresses. Coasts are marked by long, sandy beaches, dunes and protected natural reserves. There are several traces of old Messapi civilizations, rock settlements, castles and not-to-be-missed trulloes made with drystone techniques.

In the last days you will head south to the Salento. Sun, sea, wind. Nature strikes in the first place, when one gets to this land stretch in balance between two seas. The cities and inland towns expressions of the unique Lecce Baroque with Messapi and Salento Grecìa can still be seen. Its language, songs and feasts still show the culture of Magna Graecia.
