For those who want to slow down and discover Puglia slowly

The experience of cycling tourism in Apulia allows you to slowly discover a wonderful and unexpected region. As you pedal from Bari to Brindisi, you will encounter the unique panorama of the Itria Valley.

The expanses of millenary olive trees mark this part of Apulia, the oil mills along the rural roads, the castle, the vineyards, the museum, the archeological site of Egnazia, and the colors and scents create a magical labyrinth of possibilities.

A countryside inhabited all year round, dotted with characteristic trullo buildings, with dry stone walls that divide the land between olive groves and vineyards and, without the addition of mortar or cement, allow water to penetrate.

The art of dry stone walls is now recognized at a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will pass through villages such as Alberobello, with its characteristic trulli, Locorotondo with its cummerse (ancient residential settlements with a rectangular floor plan and sloping roof made of chianchette), and Cisternino, where it is worth stopping for food and wine.

The invitation is to get lost in the street of an Apulia that changes face with every season, all the way down to Salento.

One of the most beautiful panoramas in Italy is offered by the coastal road  along the Adriatic coast, because it crosses such different habitats: about eighty kilometers from the Oasi Protetta delle Cesine to Santa Maria di Leuca.

Overhanging cliffs, centuries old olive groves dotted with pajare, ancient stone shelters ; Aleppo pine forests and sand dunes covered with Mediterranean seaweed.

During the spring, Puglia is a triumph of scents and colors with asphodels, wild orchids and poppies almost flush with the cliffs.

Sixteenth century watch towers are dotted all along the way, until you reach Otranto, the easternmost town in Italy.
