7 Night "The Wonders of Puglia and Matera"


 Sunday-Sunday (1-8 September 2024) Registration open.

During this weeklong tour, we’ll explore the sights, tastes, gorgeous seascapes and architectural wonders of Puglia and Matera. Located in the “spur” and “heel” of the Italian boot this region is one of Europe’s great agricultural areas. Its immense plains and rolling hills produce much of Italy’s wine and olive oil (home to some 60,000,000 olive trees many over 1,000 years old) and vast quantities of fruit and vegetables. It also produces most of the hard durum wheat used to make pasta.

Nature’s colors are bold in Puglia, and man-made shapes are simple – with chunky, cubic houses and conical-roofed cottages dotting the countryside. Its extensive coastline bears the marks of many conquering invaders: the Normans, the Spanish, the Turks, the Swabians and the Greeks. Yet, despite its diverse influences, Puglia has its own distinct and authentic identity. The sun and sea, food, wine and quality of life!
