Apulia, the Heel of Italy

This regional affordable Italy vacation begins and ends in Naples. As one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Naples provides visitors a wealth of folklore, history, and a rich culture of the ages. After a guided sightseeing tour of the city, you’ll be on your way to the Apulia region – the “heel of the boot” of Italy and one of the favorite holiday destinations of the Italian people due to its breathtaking landscapes and enchanting coastline with turquoise waters

You’ll visit the 13th-century Castel Del Monte on your way to the beautiful port of Bari. Included in your Italy vacation are a number of surprising stops, including the fascinating Castellana Grotte limestone caves, the conical-roofed houses of Alberobello, and Lecce’s baroque architecture. You’ll also enjoy an excursion to Santa Maria di Leuca with its art nouveau houses, and Gallipoli’s underground olive presses, and winding streets above.

Your budget travel to Italy experience is never short on great food and drink. Learn about regional wines on your visit to a Primitivo wine cellar in Manduria. You’ll enjoy artistic cultural treats as well, such as a visit to Grottaglie – producer of famous terracotta pottery since the Middle Ages.

Before returning to Naples, enjoy a leisurely stay in Fasano – surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Your affordable Italy tour of the Apulia region of Italy ends where it began – in Naples – where authentic Napoli pizza and espresso await your return!
