Tour Valle d’Itria

Departure from Bari and arrival in Polignano, a city with a historical-naturalistic charm.

In addition to the beautiful coast of this city, you can see the sea caves, the historic center and the archaeological remains of Roman domination. Among these remains you can see the bridge of the “via Traiana”, still practicable, that crosses Lama Monachile.

Immediately after the stop in Polignano, the journey continues in Monopoli. In this city, kissed by the sea and the sun, you can visit the numerous churches that stand between the streets of the city in the old center. Of all the sacred buildings located in the old city, the most important is the Concattedrale della Madonna della Madia. This sacred building (built on the remains of an ancient pagan temple) presents under the current floor, the remains of the crypt of the Romanesque Cathedral, with also archaeological evidence of an uninterrupted human attendance from the XVI century BC. until the 18th century AD.

The tour continues, after Monopoli, with two stops in Torre Canne (where you can see the fantastic white sand beach known throughout Puglia) and Torre Guaceto (the natural state reserve located on the Adriatic coast of the high Salento, whose beauties historic-naturalistic can amaze all visitors).

After these last two stops, the journey continues towards Ostuni; the legendary white city of Puglia. In this place lapped by the sun, you can visit the beautiful old town, the Museum of Preclassic Civilization of the Southern Murgia, the Archaeological Park of Santa Maria D’Agnano and the beautiful Concattedrale dedicated to Santa Maria of the Assumption (located on the highest hill of the city) with its characteristic Latin cross plan and a facade with late Gothic forms.

The day ends with an overnight stay in the city. So it will be possible to taste typical local products and spend the evening in one of the many restaurants of the city.
