A holiday that enables you to savour the flavours, scents and sites of this wonderful area of Italy at it's best. I like giving my guests the best possible feel for Puglia where they can be in touch with the real Apulian life, meeting locals, admiring hidden corners and eating in selected restaurants where it's difficult to find many tourists with a guidebook in their hands. One doesn't feel like a tourist who is tramping around a pre-set journey. I'll take care of everything, including your accommodation, airport collection and I'll be more than pleased to lead you through a fantastic itinerary of discovery of the beautiful places, landscapes and extraordinary gourmet food of Puglia. Small group tour not larger than 6 people.
