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 stone huts 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!

 

Gentle Hiking in Puglia

With optional extensions to either the Amalfi Coast or an MSC Mediterranean Cruise 

Travel Dates: September 9 – 22/23, 2019

A minimum of 10 participants are needed for both the first week and the Amalfi Coast option. There is no minimum required for the cruise week.

A delightful mix of light hiking and exploring, 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 has two optional extensions, either the Amalfi Coast or a Mediterranean cruise.

 

The first option in Amalfi, our days include light hikes on ancient footpaths, ascending Mt. Vesuvius as well as the ruins of Pompeii. A hydrofoil brings us to the island of Capri where we will discover romantic alleys, flower filled pathways and enjoy a dip in the inviting water.

The second option will be aboard MSC Magnifica sailing through Katakolon (Olympia), Santorini, Piraeus (Athens),Corfu, Kotor and Venice.
