TRAIN HOLIDAYS IN PUGLIA: TOUR DEPARTURE FROM BARI
If you arrive in Puglia by plane or train and your first stop is Bari, then your itinerary will start right in heart of the regional capital - the city of “a thousand faces” – with its history spanning from the ancient to the contemporary. In Bari you will appreciate the authenticity of the inhabitants and the charm of an incredibly beautiful city. Your first overnight stay will be right here, in a characteristic B&B in the city. At sunset, there is a guided tour, where, amongst other things, you can taste the Bari focaccia and meet the famous ladies who prepare the orecchiette pasta.
TRAIN HOLIDAYS IN PUGLIA: TOUR DEPARTURE FROM TRANI
If you arrive in Puglia directly by train from the North, then we recommend Trani as a first stop. From 13 June there will be national connections served by the super-fast Italo train, with a stop in Trani, so it would be perfect to start your train tour of Puglia from here. Maybe you could stay one more night in this town which, in addition to the artistic and architectural beauty, in the evening turns into an open-air lounge and where, around the port area, you can enjoy aperitifs, fish dinners and good music in the many clubs.
THIS ITINERARY IS INDICATIVE AND CAN BE MADE-TO-MEASURE FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS.
BASED ON YOUR REQUIREMENTS, WE CAN ORGANISE THE VARIOUS STAGES.
In summer we include a beautiful boat expedition as standard, but it you prefer, because maybe you don’t like to sail, we can amend the tour to include other guided tours instead.
