Cycling in Puglia region of Italy

Puglia is one of Italy's best kept secrets

On a bicycle tour through Puglia you can explore the towns, landscapes and gastronomy that make this region one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Puglia’s strategic location on the Adriatic Sea has made it a cultural crossroads throughout history, connecting Italy to various Mediterranean cultures and civilizations and contributing to its agricultural and culinary traditions.

The region is a major producer of olive oil with some of the oldest trees in the Mediterranean basin. Its cuisine features locally sourced ingredients and is a prime example of the healthy Mediterranean diet based on fresh vegetables, fish and pasta. Puglia is also known for its robust red wines such as Primitivo and Negroamaro.

As the “heel” of the “boot,” Puglia is home to some of the most diverse and beautiful coastlines of any region in Italy. Its crystal-clear waters and picturesque towns like Polignano a Mare and Ostuni, have inspired artists, writers, and travelers alike.

The iconic trulli, traditional stone huts with conical roofs, are a distinctive feature of the region’s landscape and dot the small roads you follow on your bike tour. Puglia is also home to a wealth of historic sites, including the Romanesque cathedrals of Bari and Trani, as well as the Castel del Monte, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and masterpiece of medieval architecture.

Whether on your first or tenth trip to Italy, a bike tour through Puglia is a rewarding way to experience this diverse and extraordinary country.
