A range of green hills covered with woods alternated with sown fields, sometimes green sometimes golden depending on the season.
A triumph of trulli, of masserie and dry stone walls, which stretch out for thousands of kilometres marking out the estates.
An oasis of silence underlined by the birds’ lively chirping and by the peaceful re-echoing of the cowbells from the herds. This is the countryside of the so-called ‘Murgia dei Trulli e delle Grotte
’, a karstic region where the erosive action of water succeeded in creating basins, swamps, sink holes, rocky hollows and real caves, like those in Castellana Grotte
(9 km), which are open to visitors, along an underground passage almost three thousand metres in length. There are the many stones, used without mortar, to build the trulli that you can visit in Alberobello. Furthermore, there is more uniquely magical scenery in the Valley d’Itria. Locorotondo
is famous worldwide for its winery and the white wine that it produces; Martina Franca is known for its famous Lyric Festival and Cisternino
has a perfectly preserved centro storico that has given it its status as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. Finally chose between towns along the Adriatic coast such as Monopoli
where the sea is crystal clear and perfect for driving and Castellaneta Marina on the Ionic coast.
The Pugliesi, with their hospitality and cheerfulness, form a backdrop for this magnificent scenery.
