A DREAM VACATION

VISIT PUGLIA  ITALY  ~ Exclusive Private Tours

 

Indulge yourself in one of the least explored regions of Italy!!

Travel to colorful, intriguing, exotic Puglia, where time seems to pass more slowly, giving residents and visitors alike, the opportunity to absorb every rich detail of life.

 

Located in the heel of Italy’s boot and bathed in warm sunshine nearly year-round, Puglia boasts the rustic tranquility of the Italian countryside nestled in the mountains, and a gorgeous coastline bathed by two crystal blue seas, the Adriatic and the Ionian.

 

Behold the natural beauty of stark rocks meeting clean beaches lapped by crystal-clear water; gigantic olive trees spiraling up from dark red soil fringed by vivid wildflowers;

and fragrant pine forests opening onto chalk-white sands.

 

Experience the cultural richness of magnificent architecture, unique foods, and a vibrant atmosphere of Puglia that bear witness to the influences of Norman, Spanish, Turk, Swabian and Greek invaders of centuries past. 

 

So, be it the ancient history that lingers in the crumbling stone trulli of Alberobello, the

Baroque churches of Lecce, the majestic fortress Castel del Monte, the intrigue of 15th-century convents surrounded by olive groves, the serenity of breath-taking natural beauty, or the relaxed pace of life, Puglia travel exceeds your average vacation experience.
