Tour Overview Tour Overview

Located in the heart of Puglia lies Itria Valley - home to trulli, Alberobello, Locorotondo and Cisternino. Explore this stunning area on our Puglia Italy bike tours and cycle between olive groves, vineyards and masseria - typical farm houses. Your Apulian experience will feature hilltop towns of Cisternino and Ostuni as well as olive oil tasting and lunch full of local specialties.

Start your private Puglia tour with pick up at your accommodation in Bari. Transfers from other locations are available on request at an extra cost. In the Savelletri area begin to pedal and warm up your muscles for about 12km before stopping by an impressive masseria - a typical Apulian large farm. One of Puglia's most important treasures is olive oil. It's hard to imagine Italian meals without it. Puglia has over 60 million olive trees and is the first region in Italy as far as quantity and quality of olive oil are concerned. Produced since the bronze age this green gold is the main ingredient of Apulian recipes. Your guided tour of Puglia features a visit at a local olive oil estate where you can hear stories about the long tradition and complexity of producing this pillar of Italian cuisine. Walk the beautiful grounds of the estate and enjoy some olive oil tasting!

Enjoy a lovely climb to the hilltop town of Cisternino. One of Apulian jewels, sitting at 400m above sea level, this beautiful town boasts stunning views of the surrounding valley. Take a walk on lovely narrow streets, admire the 14th century church of St Nicholas, stop by the charming Vittorio Emanuele square and its Clock Tower. Enjoy a coffee or a pastry before getting back on your two wheels. Your Puglia bike tour will now head to the famous white city: Ostuni. Undoubtedly one of the most stunning towns in Southern Italy it's known for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. It's an amazing view as you can spot this hilltop town from a distance. Wander through the streets, peek at what the artisan shops have to offer and take a pic of the majestic Gothic cathedral. Along the route you will be stopping for lunch to taste local specialties including the famous orecchiette pasta! Then it's cycling back to the departure point where you will meet your driver who will accompany you back to your accommodation in Bari.
