Puglia on Two Wheels CIP

Visiting: Italy
Trip Duration 8 Days

Italy Cycling Holiday

Cycling along quiet provincial roads we discover the 'heel' of Italy in the sun-drenched region of Puglia. On easy rides we enjoy wide panoramas and big skies as we traverse a gently rolling land with endless fields of grain, gnarled olive trees and ancient vines. We explore Alta Murgia National Park, the famous ancient 'sassi' troglodyte town of Matera, whitewashed villages and the rugged Adriatic coastline. Along the way we introduce the superb Pugliese cuisine with cheeses from a local 'caseificio', a visit to a family-run bakery and wine tasting.

Tour Highlights

  • Alta Murgia National Park - Ride through a perfect example of Mediterranean Steppe to impressive castle
  • Matera - Ancient city 'sassi' cave dwellings, one of Europe's oldest settlements
  • Local delicacies - Primitivo wine, mozzarella di bufala, fresh antipasti
  • Tastings - Visit, explanation and tastings of local bread, cheese and wine
  • Centenary olive groves - Gnarly odd-shaped olive trees
  • Alberobello and Monopoli - Whitewashed towns with the fairytale-like 'trulli' dwellings
  • Adriatic coast - Superb coastal vistas and crystal-clear waters

Cycling Information
On this trip we cycle 240 km over six days (an average of 40 km per day). Two of the cycling days are circular routes and therefore optional. We travel mainly on quiet country roads, on flat or gently undulating terrain. The Explore Leader accompanies on bike on each day and on day 5 there is also a support vehicle. Maps and route notes are provided so you can choose to cycle individually or in groups. We have graded the route as easy.
