Between the olive trees in Apulia, self guided

Puglia is a region in southern Italy or the Italian “heel”, which is proud of its trulli houses, traditional masserias, the oldest olive trees in the world and a high quality olive oil, very tasty food and authentic lifestyle.

Salento is a region that is almost completely flat, making the ride a pleasant journey for any level of rider. Youwill be cycling approximately 30 km a day (about 3 hours of leisurely cycling), mainly crossing secondary roads, with sea-breaks, guided visits and wine and local products tastings. We follow the philosophy of “slow-moving” to fully enjoy the surrounding landscape and the culture with all its different aspects. GPS maps will guide you through the most suggestive and less busy roads.
