Ostuni is a treasure hidden on a hill, waiting for you to discover its secrets. You will get lost in its winding paths, ancient houses stacked on top of each other, gardens full of flowers, glimpses of the blue sea, and colorful doors and windows.


Martina Franca is a charming Baroque town in Puglia's Valle d'Itria. You can see beautiful monuments, taste delicious capocollo and enjoy opera and classical music in summer.


Torre Guaceto is a nature lover’s paradise combining unspoilt woods, Mediterranean maquis, several miles of sandy beach, and a protected marine reserve. While there you may well come across a flock of flamingos, just one of the dozens of species of migratory birds who stop off here.


Alberobello is known as Puglia's trulli town. It is a town of just over 10,000 people. As one of the ‘must do’ items on everyone’s itinerary, the town has inevitably become a little overcrowded with tour groups, but it can still be enjoyed if you visit early and with your expectations managed.
