Visit Valle d’Itria in one day
This area in the center of Puglia is among the most heterogeneous and complete in the whole region. Beyond the famous Alberobello, home of the Apulian symbolic trulli, we recommend visiting the most hidden pearls that will surprise you such as Martina Franca, an elegant town with chic shops, Locorotondo, known not only for its beauty, but also for its wine and the summer festival of Jazz music, or Cisternino, a village-favor where the tasty meat of traditional cuisine is not to be missed.
Even the nature here is special, and contains very different habitats, being a short distance from enchanting beaches with crystal clear water or intense blue sea, and archaeological sites, dry stone walls among ancient olive or almond trees and lively villages; a corner of Puglia where visiting farms and peasant homes for an unforgettable tasting of local products is highly recommended. Go hunting for bruschetta, bombette, oil, tomatoes, wine and cheeses that you will not find anywhere else.

If you choose 2, the Organizer can give you a car lift for free to reach the different towns. The visit of Valle d’Itria by foot to discover the hidden gems of the city is recommended for those who love calm and prefer to appreciate all the details invisible to a quick eye. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
