DAY 2, Sunday - Arrive in Bari
Arrive Bari and transfer to your hotel. The energetic port city of Bari is the capital of the Puglia region of Italy, which forms the heel of Italy's “boot”.

DAY 3, Monday - Bari's Old City and Castel del Monte
The exploration of Bari starts in the revitalized narrow streets of the Old City (Bari Vecchia). View Bari Cathedral and the stunning Romanesque Basilica of San Nicola, housing the relics of St. Nicholas, known as Father Christmas. Next, your historical walking tour reveals 12th century Castello Normanno-Svevo built by the Normans. In the afternoon travel to gorgeous Castel del Monte, an extraordinary medieval fortress celebrated for its unique octagonal design. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this 13th-century castle, built by Frederick II, is considered one of the best preserved medieval castles in Southern Italy, used as a site of the famous movie "The Name of the Rose" with Sean Connery. A tour of this fortress highlights the ingenious architecture, magnificent structure, and its massive public halls. Upon return, linger on your own through Bari's pretty squares, admire the architecture and try traditional Pugliese food in one of the piazzas buzzing with trendy restaurants and cafes

DAY 4, Tuesday - Masseria Lunch, Lecce
Begin your day with a visit to a beautiful local “Masseria“, or farmhouse, to enjoy lunch with regional specialties including local wine. Afterward, travel to Lecce, known as the "Florence of the South" and stroll along 300 year old cobblestone streets past exquisite Baroque architecture. View the Piazza del Duomo and the Roman amphitheater dating back to the 2nd century. Then admire the masterpiece of Southern Baroque in the Basilica of Santa Croce.

Rocky coastline, beaches, fishing villages, and watchtowers are waiting to be experienced in the most remote area of the Puglia region. After your lunch featuring local products and dishes, continue along the coast to Otranto, the easternmost Italian town. Walk the historical center surrounded by its ancient walls at your own pace, take your time to check the tiny small shops, and why not savor a gelato while sitting in an outdoor café before returning to Lecce for leisure time

DAY 6, Thursday - Alberobello, Matera
This morning visit the delightful town of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which introduces you to the Apulian traditional dry stone huts known as Trulli. In existence since the 14th century, these unusual structures featuring pyramidal, domed, or conical roofs are remarkable examples of mortarless, drywall construction, a prehistoric building technique used in this region. After time on your own, journey to fascinating Matera. Here, learn about Matera's roots connecting to the Paleolithic Age as you explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mysterious Sassi (ancient stone dwellings carved into rock) are believed to be the first human settlements in Italy. Over the centuries, the Sassi were adapted into family homes. Tonight, gather together for dinner at the hotel in Matera
