Day 1
Check in Alberobello
Check-in around 14.00 at your charming hotel in Alberobello. Alberobello will welcome you into this beautiful valley with its thousand cones upside down toward the sky. The history of these ancient rural buildings with conical shapes, each distinguished by strange symbols and pinnacles of various forms mingle easily with local myths and legends. Some late studies associate Alberobello with the Turkish town of Harran, in Kurdistan, where similar houses are made with blocks of soil baked in the sun. Piazza Martellotta divides the city between the more touristic and suggestive part in Rione Monti and the most authentic and calm in Aia Piccola. Overnight in Alberobello.
Day 2
Cycle to Castellana Grotte - Distance 35 km
Today you will know one of the principal phenomena of this territory, the karst stone with its rock formations. Following gentle undulations, oak forests, vineyards, and olive trees you will cycle up to the largest karst caves in Italy. The magnificent caves of Castellana are a truly unique experience: they run underground for over three kilometers in an atmosphere between evocative power and magic, reflections with stalagmites and stalactites grown with ancestral rhythms. Another night among trulli is awaiting you.
Day 3
Bike loop via Locorotondo - Distance 30 km
Few kilometers of gentle ups and downs to reach Lorocotondo, a small white village whose wonderful balcony overlooks the heart of the Itria Valley. The lands here are devoted to the cultivation of vines, which with the help of the sun produce a light and fresh white wine of high quality: the Locorotondo Doc. Have a walk in its old town and take your time for a careful and tasting food&wine research in one of the small restaurants that the center hides. Going back to Alberobello for your last night here, try to don’t miss the amazing sunset over the trulli from one of its panoramic terraces.
Day 4
From Alberobello to Martina Franca - Distance 17 km
The route is almost completely flat; the only ascent will be the one that will take you to the town of Martina Franca. San Martino is the patron saint of the city, from which it takes its name. The name "Franca", which means "free of expenses", was given by Prince Philip of Anjou in the 14th century, to exempt the city from paying taxes. Besides the arch entrance of the old town, along the main street, a rich and elegant scenery of striking buildings and churches will open up. Here the typical Baroque becomes almost Rococò and combined with the white lime creates an entirely unique style full of exotic charm. To satisfy eyes and palate, don’t miss the famous local products: the Capocollo, Puglia appreciated cold cut, Slow Food Presidium since 2007, and the Bocconotto, sweet shortbread with a cream and black cherry heart, to taste strictly at Café Nuova Tripoli. Overnight in Martina Franca.
Day 5
Bike loop via Cisternino - Distance 30 km
Cycling in this fairytale land, surrounded by gentle undulations full of vineyards and cultivated fields you will reach Cisternino, one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of Italy”. This small town is well known in the Itria Valley for its mazy oriental charm, reflected in the alleys, arches, courtyards, and stairways of its four old districts. This spontaneous and unique architecture branches around the Clock Tower Square. A truly local eating experience here is the Fornello, the barbecuing butcher: you choose your meat, take a seat and wait with a carafe of local wine! Before returning to Martina Franca for your last night there, you will cycle along a stretch of the new Greenway of the Puglia aqueduct, the longest in Europe.
Day 6
From Martina Franca to Ostuni via Ceglie Messapica - Distance 35 km
A day is dedicated to the town of Ceglie Messapica, a small town where art and food coexist harmoniously. In the centre, a Norman Tower over 30m high overlooks the entire complex. All around an ancient and surreal atmosphere that ranges from the time of Messapians ancestors to Medieval times. Ceglie is considered the gastronomic capital of the Itria Valley: stop for lunch at one of its restaurants and check it out for yourself! From the mashed Fava-beans accompanied by wild vegetables to the special Cookie of Ceglie, a Slow Food product, you will eat like locals do every day. Great help for digestion, a ride towards Ostuni, the White City par excellence. The custom of whitewashing the walls with lime dates back to the Middle Ages, to make brighter and fresher the narrow alleys. Besides being a natural disinfectant lime prevented the spread of the plague when an epidemic broke out in the 17th century. Overnight in Ostuni.
Day 7
In the Natural Park Dune Costiere - Distance 30 km
Nature will relax you today thanks to the beauty of the Natural Park Dune Costiere. Slice of heaven between the land and the sea, here the dunes preserve many natural habitats. Not only fossil dunes but also long and beautiful beaches, fragrant Mediterranean vegetation, ponds and wetlands, archaeological sites of historical and cultural significance, historic farms and oil mills, rock settlements, and more. On the way back you will find an authentic Masseria among century-old olive trees for a surprising guide tour with Extra Virgin Olive oil tasting. On the road uphill you will reach Ostuni again.
