THE HIDDEN TREASURES CULINARY TOURS

Culinary Tour through Puglia Basilicata

THE-HIDDEN-TREASURES-SEPARATOR

From the stunning coastline of Puglia to the green mountains of Basilicata, the great diversity of landscapes in these two beautiful southern Italian regions is also reflected in their culinary tradition and variety. Well known are “Orecchiette” pasta, “Caciocavallo” cheese, olive oil, bread and many other exquisite products.

The gourmet tour starts with a typical “AperiCena” in Bari, the fascinating capital of Puglia. During a culinary city walk through the city, as well as a so-called “menù di famiglia” – a dinner hosted by locals – we will not only discover Apulian cuisine, but also its unique hospitality.

As the largest olive oil producer in Italy, the production of the “green gold” oil, has a very special meaning in Puglia – the gourmet tour takes this fact into account, with a visit to an olive oil producer in picturesque Alberobello and its white “trulli” houses. A culinary walk through Altamura introduces us to local specialties – first and foremost the famous bread of Altamura.

Also known for its bread – made from twice-ground semolina – is Matera. This magic cave town in the Basilicata region was the European Capital of Culture in 2019. A guided tour focusing on the historical and cultural aspects of the town will be followed by a tasting of local cheese specialties such as caciocavallo or pecorino.

We conclude the journey – how could it be otherwise – with a visit to another high quality olive oil producer, this time in Modugno. We will taste different olive oils with their intense, delicately spicy notes.

The tour includes three carefully selected accommodations in Bari, Matera and Palese, that will ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay. A mix of public transportation (where possible) and private transfers during the tour, as well as an experienced tour leader, will contribute to a particularly authentic and unforgettable travel experience.
