What to Expect
Trace the origins of the traditional pizzica dance (part of the family of tarantella dances) on a full-day tour of Bari and Lecce.

Start with a morning tour of Bari, the second most important cruise port in Italy after Venice. Rich in history, Bari pre-dates the Romans, but it was during the Middle Ages that it truly flourished, partly as one of the main slave ports of the Mediterranean.

Visit the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, one of the 4 Palatine churches of Apulia, and home to the relics of Saint Nicholas, and travel down the Lungomare Perotti, the longest seafront road in Italy.

Then, depart for Lecce, close to the southern tip of Italy’s heel. Sometimes nicknamed the “Florence of the South” for its stunning Baroque architecture and rich cultural traditions, Lecce is also home to the traditional pizzica folk dance.

As you investigate this popular tradition, stroll along small streets full of souvenir shops, and stop to taste typical and traditional foods of Puglia.
