With Italy now quarantine free, anyone looking for a romantic getaway can spend a blissful ten days exploring the beautiful Puglia region on a luxurious tour that includes a night in a charming, historic Trullo.
Guests will get the opportunity to visit and stay overnight in the famous Trulli village of Alberobello, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the unique architecture preserved there.
The distinctive whitewashed huts with their characteristic conical roofs achieved their world heritage status in 1996, now sitting alongside other national treasures including Cinque Terre, Mount Etna and Castel del Monte.
‘Undiscovered Puglia’ offers travellers ultimate luxury in Le Alcove; a Trullo hotel with enchanting rooms and a romantic atmosphere. It’s the perfect addition to a tour that is already brimming with dreamy experiences.
Offered by Unforgettable Travel, the trip takes guests around some of the most stunning sights in this often-overlooked region of southern Italy: Matera, Savelletri, Lecce, and Bari.
The trip also includes a wine tasting workshop in the stunning village of Locorotondo which overlooks the famous Val d’Itria. Guests have the opportunity to explore a local winery before sampling the white varieties produced by the grapes in the area, accompanied by light bites that complement the flavours of the drink.
Matera is another of Puglia’s most popular destinations and visited in this tour, with two days allocated to explore the ancient cave settlements just outside of the city.
Travellers can stroll through the winding streets situated atop a ridge and view dramatic canyons, discover traces of previous inhabitants at the Sassi di Matera, and enjoy an unforgettable candlelit dinner in a restaurant that has been built into one of the extraordinary caves.
To round off the experience of the magical region, guests can enjoy a visit to the picturesque, hilltop village of Ostuni where whitewashed houses offer a stark contrast to the beautiful blue sky and nearby ocean.
The village provides plenty of scenic backdrops for a leisurely lunch and a bit of sightseeing before enjoying the final leg of the tour in historic Gallipoli and Bari.
Italy has long been one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations thanks to its unique culture, exceptional food, and some of the most outstanding historical sites in the world.
But for travellers looking for an unforgettable experience away from the crowds, this Southern Italian trip is the perfect option.
Undiscovered Puglia is available through Unforgettable Travel from £2075 per person for a ten-day trip. An overnight stay at Le Alcove trulli hotel can be arranged for an additional fee, which varies depending on seasonality and starts from €250 per night.
