What to expect

Ostuni, a typical village in the province of Brindisi located on the foothills of the Murge plateau, constitutes, along with Santa Maria di Leuca, Otranto and Taranto, one of the most famous places of the Salento peninsula. Also known as the White City because of the characteristic color of its houses, Ostuni rises to over 200 meters above sea level. In the old town of Ostuni, called by its inhabitants "The Land" to distinguish it from the more recent “marina”, the houses climb up the steep slopes of a hill and the village is characterized by a tangle of winding streets, a succession of squares, alleys and courtyards. On top of the hill, it stands the Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace.

Alberobello, the trulli village, is a UNESCO world heritage site: the trulli are remarkable examples of drywall (mortar less) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders, collected from neighboring fields. Characteristically, they feature pyramidal, domed or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs.

Stone street, calm plazas and mystical sea caves make Polignano a Mare one of the most charming coastal towns in Italy.
