In Search of Green Gold

Written By Elena Riccardo

Our travel packages include an 8-night, 9-day travel experience around Puglia and Basilicata in an intimate group setting (12 people max), that will give you an insider’s view of the best this area has to offer. Starting from €1,900 (approximately $2,200).

Our activities, from participating in the olive harvest to exploring the grottoes around the Cape of Salento, to visiting any number of the fabulous destinations around Puglia and Basilicata, can be booked as day trips for those traveling on their own.

Prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind journey into autumn, for an authentic travel experience that offers you the best of the seasons’ flavors and traditions. Pick organic olives and learn how to“taste” olive oil like a pro during our visit to an organic olive oil mill. Enjoy a private cooking class that takes you behind the scenes and into the kitchen, where you’ll learn to make homemade pasta and other regional specialties. Our home base will be in Lecce, but we’ll be making plenty of stops around the province, with a visit to the 9,000-year-old city of Matera, as well as the fairytale town of Alberobello, which has inadvertently become one of Italy’s most charming and unique towns. You’ll get to spend a night in your very own trullo, a curious, conical-shaped hut that was designed to be dismantled when the taxman came around. Other destinations include the charming port town of Otranto, Italy’s easternmost point, famous for its gorgeous winding streets and whitewashed houses, and the gorgeous seaside city of Polignano a Mare.
