PLEASURES OF PUGLIA GASTRONOMY and HISTORY

WEDNESDAY 24TH MAY - WEDNESDAY 31ST MAY 2017

This small group holiday, hosted by David and Leonie at Masseria Impisi, aims to provide the best possible introduction to the gastronomy and history of this unspoilt part of Italy. A gourmets paradise, Puglia has long been known by the rest of Italia for the quality of its wines, oil and seafood. It is now being discovered by the rest of the world so come now before mass tourism arrives. Meet the artisans who continue proud traditions of food and wine production at family farms and cantinas, enjoy the bustling markets and dine at both Michelin starred restaurants and simple local trattorias.
Combine these pleasures with guided cultural and historic tours and you have a very special holiday. You will see Paleolithic ritual burials, Greek and Roman ampitheatres, early Byzantine churches, Baroque cathedrals and the mysterious Trulli houses of the Val d'Itria, all evidence of Puglia's turbulent past.
The itinerary is flexible enough to allow time for independent walking, cycling and swimming as well as the minibus tours. (Detailed itinerary by request.)

The cost of the Holiday is 950 per person. based on two people sharing a double / twin room.
