Departing from Lecce at 9am, you will travel aboard a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. This tour will give you the opportunity to discover the Itria Valley, an area characterized by the presence of the extraordinary "Trulli", mythical houses with a conical roof, built with overlapped dried limestone.
The whole Valley is surrounded by wonderful countrysides dominated by a rich vegetation and natural landscapes. It includes characteristic villages,among which you will visit Alberobello, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Ostuni.
Each of these towns appear magical and contain a fairy tale-like atmosphere. Â
Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1996,Â has the largest number of Trulli in the town of Puglia. With destinations that attract millions of tourists to its narrow streets, Alberobello offers visitors a unique scenario. Two particularly striking districts include: "Rione Monti" with its local handcrafts shops and "Aia Piccola", where the most ancient Trulli and little museumsÂ are situated.
Locorotondo is nicknamed "the balcony on the Itria Valley" because of its spectacular valley views. Considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, it offers visitor the opportunity to get lost between picturesque narrowÂ stone streets and small white houses with gable roofs called "Cummerse".
Cisternino is a small town not far from Locorotondo. Its historic center is an enchantment of whitewashed houses, flowered balconies, arches, stairways, alleys and courtyards. Cisternino is famous for its "Fornelli" scattered along the narrow alleys of the old town. At these "barbecuing butchers", customers may choose their meat from the butcher counter and then have it barbecued and served on site.
Ostuni is known as the âWhite City" par excellence. It isÂ situated on the Murge Hills with steep walls andÂ its historic center, painted only in white, is a proliferation of plans, of ups and downs, of alleys and stairways, of tangled streets that cross arches and squares. On its summit stands the monumental Cathedral, in late Gothic style.
