From Matera to Lecce: among trulli, wine and olive trees
It starts from Matera, a unique city whose buildings are carved into the rocks themselves, and which has been designated as 'European Capital of Culture' for 2019.
Among rolling hills and olive growing countryside you arrive in the Valle d'Itria: land of the 'trulli', unique stone buildings with conical roofs, reminiscent of goblins' homes. As you continue further south, towards Salento, the land flattens out and becomes increasingly more arid, and you will ride through vineyards bordered by dry stone walls. You will be able to visit the most beautiful beaches in the region, in the province of Taranto. Along the way you will stop off several times to taste the best cheeses, wines and bakery products of this area. Finally, you'll arrive in Lecce, the 'Florence of the South', that will enchant you with its baroque architecture and the hospitality of its inhabitants.
