Itinerary

Day 1 - Selva di Fasano

Pick up your rental car and begin your discovery of Apulia in Selva di Fasano. After your check in at the hotel, start exploring the white washed old town with its alleys, courtyards and narrow passages that stand out against the intense green of the olive trees that grow in the area.

Day 2 - Selva di Fasano /Alberobello/ Selva di Fasano (approx. 40 miles)

If Selva di Fasano is a symphony in the key of white houses, Alberobello will play out a full 'trullian' concerto, including the Trullo Sovrano, a two-story trullo. (B)

Day 3 - Selva di Fasano /Lecce/ Selva di Fasano (approx. 92)

Lecce is a place to linger, with a few diverting Roman remains and a wealth of fine architecture scattered about an appealing old town. The exuberant building styles on display in Lecce are the legacy of religious orders (Jesuits, the Teatini and Franciscans), while the flowery style of ''Leccese Baroque'' owed as much to the materials to hand as to the skills of the architects. (B)

Day 4 - Selva di Fasano /Castellana Grotte/Bari (approx. 62 miles)

Italy vacationIn Castellana (approx. 35 miles), magnificent caves were uncovered revealing an infinite variety of richly colored stalactites and stalagmites, a nature miracle. Bari, Apulia's capital, is not far away (approx. 27 miles). A port city with a lovely sea promenade, spotless Old Town, noteworthy Cathedral and 13th Century castle. (B)

Day 5 - Bari/Andria/Trani/Bari (approx. 86 miles)

The great Frederick II built a castle on a promontory near Andria (approx. 36 miles). This castle is today listed among UNESCO World Heritage sites. Next we arrive at a wine producing town located on the Adriatic coastline, Trani (approx. 22 miles). Its ancient harbor is dominated by a slender Romanesque Cathedral, a sight to behold. Drive back to Bari (approx. 28 miles) in time for aperitif and dinner with good Apulian specialties and wines. (B)
