Full description
Discover 2 of Apulia's most beautiful towns on this guided tour from Bari. Begin your journey to your first city, the UNESCO-listed Alberobello. Follow your guide into the historical center, which boasts over 1,000 iconic Trulli buildings. Marvel at the unique architecture of these fascinating buildings while learning about their history and significance.

Continue the tour with a visit to Rione Aia Piccola, an area that best represents the ancient medieval village where you can stop at the viewpoint to take some beautiful pictures. Finish your tour of Alberobello at the highest point in the city where the Church of Saint Anthony of Padua is located. Notice the similarities between the church and the Trulli buildings and soak up the historical atmosphere of the site as you listen to your guide’s tales and anecdotes.

Next, continue to the city of Matera and pay a visit to the Church of San Francesco, situated in the historic center of the city. Afterward, stroll along narrow streets and winding alleys to reach the Rupestre Church of Sant'Antonio Abate, where a pleasant surprise awaits you inside. Next, move on to visit a typical Matera cave-house before continuing along Via Madonna delle Virtù and Porta Pistoia "Pert P’stèl" to conclude your cultural adventure. Get dropped off back at the meeting point in Bari at the end of the day.
