Itinerary

Day 1

Your Puglia bike tour starts at the Bari Centrale train station. After meeting your trip leaders, you transfer to Ostuni, a whitewashed town with narrow streets in the Province of Brindisi. Kick things off with a light lunch and introduction to the week before a self-guided visit of the town. From the hill and fortified town of Ostuni, ride toward the Adriatic Sea and arrive at your luxurious hotel Il Masseria Torre Maizza. Before dinner, unwind by the hotel sparkling pool or settle in your room for some downtime.

Today’s Ride: 26 miles with 1,500 feet of climbing

Day 2

On your second day, you travel to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Alberobello famous for its trulli, traditional dry stone huts with conical roofs. In the company of a local guide, stroll through the town and learn more about those mortarless constructions with conical roofs. You’re on your own for lunch but don’t hesitate to ask your trip leaders for recommendations. In the afternoon, follow the deserted roads of the Province of Bari back to your hotel. In the evening, meet with a sommelier for a wonderful tasting of local wines. Then, dine at your hotel gourmet restaurant.

Today’s Ride: 35 miles with 2,000 feet of climbing
Short Option: 21 miles with 1,700 feet of climbing
Long Option: 45 miles with 2,500 feet of climbing

Day 3

Your Puglia cycling holiday continues through the Pugliese countryside, passing charming villages and untouched olive groves. Head out to the town of Noci with its nice restaurants and shops. In the afternoon, wind your way through the Basilicata region and to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Matera, famous for its ancient cave dwellings, the “Sassi”. Late afternoon, arrive at the Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita, a troglodyte settlement in ancient face dwellings. Before dinner, take a walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Matera with a local guide.

Today’s Ride: 35 miles with 2,300 feet of climbing
Short Option: 23 miles with 2,000 feet of climbing

Then, get on your bicycle and set out on a lovely ride through the countryside and to the town of Putignano for lunch. In the afternoon, ride through olive fields, whitewashed houses and dry stone walls, typical of Southern Italy. Later, arrive at Il Melograno, your 17th century masseria and a former farmhouse for the next two nights.

Today’s Ride: 28 miles with 1,400 feet of climbing
Short Option: 17 miles with 1,100 feet of climbing

This whole cycling tour in Puglia was beautifully organised and we enjoyed every day, riding with Simon and JB, eating outrageously good food and relaxing in the best accommodations.

We had an extraordinary adventure.

We had a great time and loved having a private guide. We certainly would consider going on a trip with you again.
