Get ready to discover the rustic charm of one of the most scenic regions of Italy – Apulia: Fondly referred to as the ‘boot’ of the country because of its southern location that serenades a long stretch of coastline, the region is also regarded as one of the richest in terms of the Baroque architecture that dots the landscape.
Your exciting journey begins with a serene lunch at the Masseria Barbera, in the company of vineyards and vast stretches of olive groves. The cuisine is handpicked to give you an authentic local taste. On request, the Taranta is performed, which is a signature dance of the region.
From the serene, rustic lunch, you are then transported to a tranquil enclave that is the Sant’Angelo de Graecis farmhouse that houses an abbey church in the same property. Here you will be treated to the signature ingredient of the region – pure olive oil. You can sample the good stuff along with the local Friselle.
The cuisine adventure continues with an entire day dedicated to cooking with a local expert. The chef will guide you through the various delicacies of the region and then encourage you to make some of them.
Apulia is mainly known for its architectural splendour, but Made In Uvet can personalise itineraries and throw in enough adventure to keep things lively and interesting for your group. You can choose the bike tour or the day-long cruise, and you can explore the region in a classic Fiat 500 or heighten the excitement by riding around on a Vespa. Whichever option you choose, all tours include food and wine tasting sessions, as well as pit stops at the most important cultural stops.
The exciting tour ends on a high note with a private concert hosted at a historical palace in the city of Lecce.
