Puglia, in south-eastern Italy offers a colourful history, and a breathtaking natural heritage. Learn as you have fun in this sun-drenched heaven occupied in turn by the Greeks, the Romans, the Ottomans, the Spaniards, each leaving their vestiges in monuments and architecture, culture and traditions.
A splendid coast of breathtakingly beautiful sea, staggering rock formations, and soft sandy beaches, edges on to splendid fields of ancient olive trees and vineyards offering delicious wines, and spectacular towns. These include the seaside, white-washed town of Ostuni; funky Alberobello, famous as "The" Trulli town, and composed of innumerable cone shaped dwellings, now full of delightful shops of craftsmen and artisans; beautiful Baroque Lecce; and the nearby lovely Locorotonda and mesmerising Martina Franca, where you can hang out in charming piazzas, bordered by seignorial mansions and towering Baroque facades, friendly cafes and restaurants, farmers' markets, or the nearby vineyards and olive groves. Don’t miss the beautiful Black horses at liberty in a nearby estate.
Martina Franca area:
Here lies one of the most characteristic towns of the Puglia region. The old town has the greatest tourist appeal, with its fabulous and completely intact baroque buildings. Martina Franca has a unique setting, dominating the Valle d'Itria, known as the "Valley of the Trulli" with its vineyards, small groups of houses, dry stone walls and open countryside.
The climate adds to the appeal, and, due to its position 400 metres above sea level, a wonderfully mild temperature throughout the summer months is guaranteed. The architecture of the historic part of town is charming with small white houses, narrow lanes, wrought iron balconies covered in flowers, Palazzi and Churches, and monuments including the gateway Porta di St. Antonio, the Arch of St Stefano, Palazzo Ducale, the Collegiate of St Martino and the Palazzo of the University of Martina Franca.
Do not miss an opportunity to get lost in the small alleys of the ancient town. No worries, in the end you will reach some spots that you may recognize and you will soon become acquainted with the place. Martina has a reputation for nice clothes shopping: the street facing the Stradone (main square with trees) after the church located behind the trees of the Villa Comunale, has plenty of elegant (sometimes expensive) shops for him and her. However eating is locally is extraordinarily cheap.
Local activities include cycling, diving, fishing, golf, horse riding, mountain biking, paragliding, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking; Other Activities: cooking lessons, wine tasting, seasonal concerts.
