Full description
Take in the sights, smells, and tastes of Italy's Puglia region on a full-day guided tour. Admire the verdant landscapes and vineyards responsible for the famous Primitivo, Negromaro, Sussumaniello, Aglianico, and Bombino Bianco wine varieties and discover centuries-old traditions that have remained largely unchanged.

The tour starts in Lecce, home of Baroque architecture and a city with a history that dates back to the Trojan War. See an amphitheater from the glory days of the Roman Empire and discover how this city earned the nickname "the Florence of Southern Italy." Visit the Duomo (cathedral), Piazza Saint Oronzo, and enjoy a Caffe Leccese (iced coffee with almond milk) and a traditional Pasticciotto (Italian cream-filled pastry) in a local café.

Refreshed, drive across the heel of Italy in an air-conditioned van to Gallipoli, on the Ionic coast. Originating from the Greek name Kalle Polis, meaning 'beautiful city', Gallipoli will surely not disappoint. Best known for its wartime history, Gallipoli's old town is built on an island now connected to the mainland by a bridge. Stroll through the charming city filled with picturesque alleys and stone churches and visit the 17th-Century Baroque Sant' Agata Cathedral in the center of the town.

Finish the tour of Gallipoli with a visit to an underground olive oil mill before sitting down for lunch at Puritate, one of the best seafood restaurants on the Salento peninsula. In the afternoon, head to a local winery where you’ll visit its cantina and taste their award-winning, organic wines.
