When we decided that we wanted to run a 'relaxing' bike tour in Italy we only really had one destination in mind - Puglia. Situated in the far south of the Italian peninsular the region has all the ingredients you could ever wish for when designing a tour.
With a tangled history of colonisation that has left its mark with an eclectic mix of cultures, architecture and gastronomy the challenge with designing this tour is what elements to include. Such is the richness of 'highlights' in the region you are truly spoilt for choice.
Situated between the azure waters of the Adriatic and the lush greenness of Basilicata, Puglia offers a landscape of beguiling views, ancient olive groves and a seeming overabundance of UNESCO sites to visit.
Our tour takes in two of these UNESCO sites - Alberobello and Matera. The former is the home to the enchanting conical houses known as trulli whilst the latter is known for its cave dwellings built into the calcareous rock. Both places have to be seen to be believed.
In addition to the UNESCO highlights the charm of Puglia lays with the people themselves whose hospitality is renowned throughout Italy. This is married with a truly unique gastronomy that is rightfully revered.
Come and ride the road less travelled in Puglia on a tour that allows all abilities to be entertained. The 'regular' ride will average 40km and with the absence of any great undulations on the route we are confident of accommodating all abilities. The daily extra loops will keep any riders looking for more miles happy too.
