Imagine biking down Italy’s “heel. ” The Puglia region has some of the most beautiful scenery in all of southern Italy and this summer might be the one you hop on a bike and explore this strip of coastal countryside.
Plenty of exercise means you can eat everything in sight, with fresh gourmet meals al fresco, just like in the movies. Bike through valleys and vineyards, olive groves and seaside villages. Butterfield & Robinson have been biking this quadrant of Europe, among others, for years and have full-service itineraries to opt into or more custom adventures as your needs and travelling companions dictate—adventure, culture and vistas you only see in postcards. The Puglia trip concludes at the UNESCO-protected Trulli of Alberobello in the province of Bari, famous for its conical-roofed limestone houses. Distances range from 40 to 60 km per day, but you can handle it. Visit ButterfieldRobinson.com.
