Puglia—the heel of Italy—is one of the country’s best-kept travel secrets. On this in-depth tour, stay at stylish resorts and experience Puglia’s rich cultural heritage, undiscovered towns, white sand beaches and rustic yet sophisticated food and wine.

Begin in Otranto, an ancient port, former Greek colony and Italy’s easternmost town. Stay at masseria (ancient fortified farmhouse) that has been converted into a luxury hotel. During private touring, visit the highlights of Otranto including the old town, Byzantine church, the 11th century cathedral and 15th century castle.

Next, you will be transferred to Lecce, Puglia’s cultural capital and one of Italy’s most beautiful towns. One morning, take a private cooking class in a former palace and learn to make typical Puglian specialties. Later, with your expert private guide, tour Lecce’s atmospheric backstreets and visit famous landmarks such as Basilica di Santa Croce, the Roman amphitheater, and Baroque churches and palaces built of ornately carved limestone. Also visit Museo Faggiano, a unique archaeological museum featuring unearthed antiquities found under a private home. Artisans of Leisure will also arrange for you to visit the studio of a renowned papier-mache artisan.  

Continue to Savelletri di Fasano and stay at a luxury resort set among ancient olive groves by the Adriatic Sea. En route, visit the “White City” of Ostuni, a tumble of whitewashed buildings. Also stop at a leading organic olive oil producer for a private tour of the farm and a private olive oil tasting. During private touring, explore favorite towns in this fascinating region. In Alberobello, tour backstreets lined with conical roofs crowning hundreds of limestone trulli—the traditional stone dwellings for which the town is known. Visit Locorotondo and Cisternino, two of Puglia’s most historic and picturesque hilltop towns. Also stop at a local winery to taste celebrated Puglian wines such as full-bodied, inky Primitivo and robust Negroamaro.  One day, take an excursion to the beautiful seaside town of Polignano a Mare to see the beautiful views and perhaps stop for lunch at a restaurant located in a cave. If desired, also tour the archaeological ruins at Egnazia, an ancient Roman site with stone roads, mosaic floors and an early-Christian church.

There will also be time to enjoy your luxury resort and its extensive facilities including a beach club, pool, spa and many fine dining options.
