Feel the freedom of the open road, exploring the stunning coastline of Puglia. This five night self-drive journey includes guided tours of Alberobello, Matera and Lecce, an Italian cooking class and time to relax on the coast. Fall "head of heel" in Love with Italy's most underrated region. Puglia offers some of the best beaches and charming towns in Europe alongside authentic rural cuisine and surprisingly good wine, this is the perfect itinerary for those that love Italy but want to get away from the crowds.

Day 1 - Arrive into Bari or Brindisi.

Fly from the UK to Bari ( various airports are available depending on your preference).   On arrival pick up your hire car and head out to explore.  Your first stop is the port town of Bari, overlooking the Adriatic sea and home to a wonderful old town area fully of charming basilicas and local trattorias, the perfect spot for lunch.

From Bari head to your wonderful boutique hotel located in the coastal town of Polignare Al Mari famed for it’s towering limestone cliffs which plunge into the turquoise waters of the Adriatic.  Spend the afternoon relaxing by then pool or head to the beach, either way ensure you’ve got an Aperol Spritz in hand whilst watching the sunset later this evening

Day 2 – Exploring Alberobello with your guide.

Head inland from the coast today to the pretty town of Alberobello, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to the iconic trullo buildings.  Here you meet your guide who will walk you around the main Trulli district, learning about these odd but typical southern Italian buildings.   Later continue to the spectacular town of Matera which is famed for it’s cave style dwellings, fascinating history and excellent cuisine, you have a guided tour to ensure you really get under its skin!!  Return to your hotel early this evening.
