6-day organised tour of UNESCO Puglia and Matera sites: why it's worth it

 
These 3 very important UNESCO sites of southern Italy (Matera, Castel del Monte and Alberobello) are not very well connected by public transport so if you are not self-equipped, it’s difficult to visit them in a few days. 
In addition, being some of the most popular locations, you would need to organise everything in advance, searching for information on how to get into the city centres,  where to find parking, which roads to walk, what to see in Matera, what to see in Alberobello etc. We simplify it all by organising everything for you, from the hotel to the transfer service from Bari and also the tour guides. Only in this way can you spend these five days of vacation between Puglia and Basilicata without any worries, relaxed, and immersed in the experience of visiting places such as Bari, Trani, Ostuni and Lecce
 

How long does it take to visit Matera, Alberobello and Castel del Monte?

A 6 day organised trip with a  detailed and complete tour itinerary will be enough to allow to you get to get to know the City of the Sassi, the capital of the trulli and the splendid manor house or octagonal castle built by Frederick II of Swabia. In addition, you will also visit other cities including Trani, Pearl of the Adriatic, Old Bari with its real and authentic old town, Ostuni the White City and Lecce,  the Florence of the south.
