Program

Day 1: Arrival in Monopoli

Individual arrival in Monopoli, a town that is well worth visiting for its narrow street flowing around its delightful port and offers some truly outstanding seafood restaurants, as well as a beautiful cathedral. Overnight stay will be in Palazzo Indelli.

Day 2: Monopoli to Conversano

You will be met by your tour leader for the briefing of the route. Your bike will be delivered to you as well. The charming route will take you along the stunning coastline from Monopoli before heading inland to Conversano.

You will have a chance to visit the small but vibrant town of Polignano a Mare, a shining gem on the coast of the Valle d'Itria, perched atop a 20-meter high limestone cliff above the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic. Then, you will reach the picturesque village of San Vito, with its multi-colored boats moored up in the tiny port, before finally getting to the beautiful little town of Conversano (about 39 kilometers).

Overnight stay will be in Relais Corte Altavilla in Conversano.

Day 3: Itria Valley and Alberobello

For this day, you will cycle over the hills dominating the Itria Valley. Nature lovers will not be disappointed to see the view of the expanse of olive trees as far as the eye can see. The Itria Valley has a red oil, green groves, vineyards, and white trullo houses under a serene blue sky - essentially, a marvelous chromatic effect that repeats itself several times over.

Crossing the little towns of Putignano and Noci, you will cycle to Alberobello, your final destination for the day (about 39 kilometers). You will stay overnight at Trullidea in Alberobello.

Day 4: Alberobello

Spend the day visiting Alberobello, universally-known as the capital of the Trulli. It is a distinctive small, dry-stone building with a conical roof (Alberobello's striking expanse of Trulli was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996). Go and wander through the narrow streets, kitsch souvenir shops and tasting local delicacies.

You can also visit the Museo del Territorio to discover the history of this unique, charming city. Alternatively, a circular cycle route (about 45 kilometers) will take deep into the Itria Valley to visit the stunning Locorotondo, with wonderful panoramic views across the Itria Valley, and to Martina Franca, a must-see town given its marvelously intact historic center, beautiful Baroque architecture, and stunning palazzi.

You will stay overnight at Trullidea in Alberobello.

Day 5: Pezze di Greco

For this day, you will cycle along the beautiful undulating country lanes lined with endless dry stone walls before enjoying a long downhill run with panoramic views of the Adriatic coastline and the lower fertile plains that will take you first to Capitolo and then to Pezze di Greco with its coloured fields of fresh tomatoes and peppers (about 39 kilometers). You will stay overnight at Masseria Salamina in Pezze di Greco.

Day 6: Ostuni and Pezze di Greco

On this day, you could just relax by the hotel's pool or cycle to the nearby beach. For those who are more energetic, a circular cycle ride (about 48 kilometers) takes you to the charming Ostuni, the White City, whose whitewashed arches and houses shine like a pearly white tiara, extending across three hills with the magnificent gem of the cathedral as its sparkling centerpiece.

You will stay overnight at Masseria Salamina in Pezze di Greco.

Day 7: Savelletri and Monopoli

On the morning, you will leave Masseria and head back to the Adriatic coast on a gentle flat route. You will cycle to the colorful fishing village of Savelletri. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy an authentic Italian espresso or a delicious seafood lunch.

You will continue cycling towards the archaeological site of Egnazia, once the location of a Greco-Roman town, dating as far back as 4 B.C. You will then return to the picturesque coastal town of Monopoli (about 37 kilometers). You will stay overnight at Palazzo Indelli in Monopoli.

Day 8: Departure

It is time to say goodbye. You will now depart Puglia. Arrivederci!
