7 days for couples or friends
A complete tour for a couple or a small group of friends who want to have a journey on a private basis to discover the beauty of Puglia from Lecce through the Itria Valley and Alta Murgia with a visit to the evocative town of Matera……Unique tasting, private guides and the choice of accommodation standard from 3* to 5* according to your budget, make this tour a unique opportunity to understand and enjoy the area. Also to make it even further a great value for money we only included breakfast as we think that is important to leave the rest of the meals to the personal discovery and taste, of course with the suggestions of our ground staff if required
Day 1 – Arrival
Independent arrival at Brindisi Airport and private transfer to Lecce. Accommodation in the hotel, welcome dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2 – Lecce
After breakfast, meeting with the guide and walking tour of Lecce, which is called ‘Florence of South Italy’ for the baroque churches and buildings. Their opulence, in contrast with the rustic style of bars and villas, makes Lecce fashionable and incomparable.

Stop in a café and ice-coffee with almond milk (a speciality from Salento) tasting the pasticciotto (a typical dessert from Lecce).
Enjoy your lunch in a typical trattoria on your own choice. In the afternoon private transfer to Itria Valley, accommodation in the hotel and overnight.
