Day 1 - Bari
Independent arrival in Bari. You will meet a local tour guide and start the street food tour. You will start from the Castello Svevo di Bari by visiting the outside with an introduction to the city, and then continue towards the ancient village, called "Bari vecchia". We will cross the alleys up to the road of the "orecchiette" where the typical pasta is handmade by the ladies. The next stop will be the Cathedral of San Sabino, a bishop of Canosa whose relics were brought here in the 9th century. You will taste the famous "sgagliozze", tasty pieces of fried polenta and the typical focaccia with tomatoes. The next stop will be the impressive Basilica of San Nicola, an important example of Apulian Romanesque architecture in which Orthodox and Catholic worship come together. Our tour will end in Piazza del Ferrarese, a dynamic hub between the historic center and the most modern part of the city. Check-in at the hotel in the historic center (2 nights)
(Services included: tourist guide, tastings, dinner and overnight stay)
Day 2 - Matera and Alberobello
Breakfast and meeting with the driver who will take you with a private transfer to Matera and Alberobello, two splendid cities, Unesco heritage, that you will visit in the company of local guides. Matera is considered one of the most beautiful places in southern Italy. It was declared a UNESCO site in 1993 and the Italian headquarters of the European Capital of Culture 2019. The visit with an authorized local guide will lead you to discover the history of a city carved into the rock, where the inhabitants still lived until the 20th century. The itinerary includes a visit to a cave house and an ancient church. A truly unique and suggestive experience.
Free lunch.
In the early afternoon transfer to Alberobello, an unmissable destination on your trip to Puglia. Indeed Alberobello, a UNESCO site since 1996, has a fairy-tale charm like no other place, given the other concentration of trulli, an important example of rural architecture that still survives today. The local guide will also show you the panoramic view of Rione Aia Piccola with its endless expanse of conical roofs. Return to Bari. Dinner
(Services included: Transfer A / R, tourist guide, dinner and overnight stay)
Day 3 - Castel del Monte
Breakfast and departure for Castel del Monte, one of the most mysterious and fascinating castles in southern Italy designed by Frederick II of Swabia. The guided tour with a professional tour guide will trace the history of the monument, UNESCO site since 1996, following various interpretations of its probable function and enriched with anecdotes about the life of the Emperor defined as "Stupor Mundi".
