Through 2 UNESCO World Heritage sites
Basilicata and Apulia: Sassi and Trulli tour

Tour Description: Self-guided

(View Guided )

A week of cycling around two wonderful UNESCO sites, Alberobello and Matera. Leaving from Matera’s “Sassi” and the rock caves and stone houses, you will reach the Itria Valley, a karstic land also called the Valley of the Trulloes. There you'll see “trulli”, limestone dwellings that are remarkable examples of drywall constructions, offering a prehistoric building technique, still in use in Apulia. 

All around, you're surrounded by olive trees and ancient farmhouses, creating an explosion of color. On the way back to the mysterious land of Basilicata, savor a slow ride from the rolling hills of the Bradano Valley, to the natural oasis of San Giuliano Lake and back to Matera.

The South of Italy's natural beauty, ancient culture, deeply-rooted local traditions, genuine Mediterranean food and, above all, the warmth and hospitality of its people, will capture you and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
