What To Expect
This regional affordable Italy small group discovery holiday begins and ends in Naples. As one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Naples provides visitors a wealth of folklore, history, and a rich culture of the ages. After a guided sightseeing tour of the city, you’ll be on your way to the Apulia region—the “heel of the boot” of Italy and one of the favourite holiday destinations of the Italian people thanks to its breathtaking landscapes and enchanting coastline with turquoise waters. You’ll visit the 13th-century Castel Del Monte on your way to the beautiful port of Bari.

This Italy holiday unveils a number of surprising treasures, including the fascinating Castellana Grotte limestone caves, the conical-roofed trulli houses of Alberobello, and Lecce’s baroque architecture. You’ll also enjoy an excursion to Santa Maria di Leuca with its art nouveau beach huts, and Gallipoli’s underground olive press and winding streets. Your budget-minded holiday in Italy is never short on great food and drink, including the chance to learn about regional wines on your visit to a Primitivo wine cellar in Manduria. Before returning to Naples, enjoy a leisurely stay in Fasano—surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Your affordable Italy tour of the Apulia region of Italy ends where it began—in Naples—where authentic Napoli pizza and espresso coffee await your return!
