Puglia is one of Italy’s most popular regions which has gone unnoticed for decades. It abounds with ancient towns from II and III century BC, extravagant baroque churches, stunning beaches, thousands of acres cultivated with ancient olive trees and grapes.
We will spend the first three days in a stunning ancient aristocratic villa outside of Gallipoli and enjoy a couple of experiences nearby. The food, the wine and the olive oil, along with the warmth of its people will capture your heart and soul.
For the next three days we move to the capital of the Southern Italian Baroque, Lecce. Antimo will accompany you every step of the way and take you to his hometown of Manduria for wine tasting and more. Be prepared to walk around whitewashed limestone villages and charming coastal towns, people watching, and peaking into ancient churches.
The last four days will be spent in a restored Trulli Villa from the 1600s outside of Locorotondo, taking day trips to Alberobello, Polignano a Mare, and Monopoli and enjoying home cooked meals in between.

“If you love food, wine, people, and off-the-beaten path destinations, give Antimo a try. He exceeded our expectations and we loved his passion!”Rita & Patrick
“I needed a true vacation and ended up having the most amazing time. Antimo thinks about every little detail so that you can truly relax. Can't wait to travel with him again! ”Ken B.
