Highlights of Puglia, Italy
Matera to Lecce – self-guided cycling  

In the heel of Italy’s boot lies an area rich in history and culture. There are over 60 million olive trees in Apulia and the extra virgin olive oil is as good as it gets. In fact, the cuisine down south is a highlight of any visit to this fascinating area. Fresh mozzarella including Apulia’s famous Burrata cheese, succulent produce, wonderful breads to mop up the sauces and olive oil, and of course orecchiette pasta. Greek, Eastern, Spanish, Roman and Arab influences are obvious in a history that pre-dates the ruins of Rome, while in spring and summer the Istria Valley is a carpet of flowers framed by dry stone walls. Not to be missed are the two wonderful UNESCO towns of Alberobello and Matera.
