9 Days: Saturday, Saturday, November 5–Sunday, November 13, 2022

SINCE OUR FIRST JOURNEY TO MYSTERIOUS PUGLIA, The Travel Club has discovered there’s even more to explore in this southern, sun-soaked province. Join us in “the real Italy” as we reveal the art, culture, tradition and cuisine of Puglia. From our home-base in Martina Franca—whose old quarter is a picturesque maze of winding alleys, blindingly white houses and blood-red geraniums, airy piazzas and curlicue ironwork balconies—we’ll start with a to visit Locorotondo, one of Puglia’s prettiest towns. Elegant Lecce is an “open air exhibition” of Baroque architecture where we’ll enjoy a cooking lesson in an old Palazzo. We’ve included lunch in a fishing village near Bari, a visit to seaside Polignano a Mare, an excursion to Matera—famous for its extensive rock dwellings—where we’ll have lunch in a “cave” restaurant. Our last tour days include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Trulli of Alberobello—the world-famous picturesque cone-shaped houses—lunch at a country agriturismo and a winery visit. Explore the unique character and charm of this “mostly undiscovered” slice of Italian heaven!
