 A delightful mix of light hiking and island cruising, Pamela Such’s tour is ideally suited for those who want to learn, linger and explore! Our first week is spent exploring
villages and  farms on foot, enjoying picnic lunches and stunning views enroute.  We’ll learn a little about pasta making, share some wine & olive oil tasting and learn about the history of this unique region of Italy. The second week will be aboard  MSC Magnifica sailing through Katakolon (Olympia), Santorini, Piraeus (Athens), Corfu, Kotor and Venice

Puglia (pronounced Poo-lia) sits in the ‘heel of Italy’s boot’ and is home to charming,  authentic villages where you’ll still find elderly nonnas chatting in the late afternoon sun.  Home to the trulli (dry sone hut with conical rooves) of Alberobello and the sassi (houses dug into the calcarentic rock) of Matera, this region of Italy is described as being ‘just so Italian’.  Organic plant based foods abound, as do fresh fish and locally sourced meats.  And the wines?  The local vineyards are focusing on their indigenous grape  varieties and have moved into producing fine wines, along with their reasonably  priced local varietals. Perfect!
