Cycle The Highlights of Puglia

  • Easy going coastal cycling across Puglia, ‘The heel of Italy’
  • Explore Salento’s coastal towns of Gallipoli, Leuca and Otranto
  • Relax on the whites sands of Torre dell Orso
  • Visit the extraordinary karstic cave of Grotto Zinzulusa
  • Dine on freshly grilled swordfish and orecchiette pasta
Begin your cycling tour by spending 2 nights in Alberobello at a UNESCO protected trulli house. Pedal along sleepy backroads through olive and almond groves to the shimmering white Greco-Roman city of Ostuni. Cross into the sun-drenched region of Salento and discover the rich Spanish, Roman and ancient Greek history which has shaped the laid back towns of Salento. Visit the towns of Gallopoli, Leuca and Otranto as you cycle along the Ionian and then the Adriatic coastline, stopping to soak up the afternoon sun over a fresh seafood lunch. Lecce, known as the ‘Florence of the South, boasts a wealth of 16th baroque architecture and an equal number of inviting piazzas to kick back and reflect on your Puglia cycling adventure with an Aperol Spritz.
